Cowgirl Seahorse

This is the side window to the Cowgirl Seahorse restaurant at the corner of Front and Dover Streets in downtown Manhattan near the South Street Seaport. The vintage Americana look is kind of generic, but I liked the light. I also understand that the interior decor is a bit more interesting, and actually plays off […]

Smallpox Hospital

These are the remnants and ruins of the Renwick Smallpox Hospital near the southern tip of Roosevelt Island. The ruins were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, and fund raising for a restoration project was begun in 1995.  Much of the north wing collapsed on December 26, 2007, and since then the project has been […]

Good Morning – Roosevelt Island Bridge

Irene came and went with limited impact, and we live in a world filled with beauty. The Roosevelt Island Bridge on a Saturday morning about 2 weeks ago. Happy Monday, good morning, and welcome to the working week.

Silvercup Approach

Irene hit last night and is still passing through, but it’s likely the worst is over. It appears it has been less destructive than feared, which is good. I lost power in about 1/3 of my house, including the entire area where the cable modem and router are, but I jerry rigged something up and […]

New York by Gehry

It used to be called Beekman Tower, now it’s just “New York By Gehry.” It’s still brand new but they changed the name. No official word on why, but my guess is people are figuring out that Gehry has become a brand. It’s beautifully photogenic, and if you come back here you’ll be seeing lots more photos […]

Life Finds A Way

This is obviously the companion piece to yesterday’s image, but while that photo made me reflect on the origins of the pilings, this one has me reflecting on a powerful concept – life finds a way. I expect most of us picture Jeff Goldblum saying that in the Jurassic Park movie, but this takes me […]

Sunrise Over Astoria

When I parked in this garage Friday morning I saw this awesome sight and tried to capture it but my equipment was not set up properly. When I returned the next day I was ready. That’s the East River between Roosevelt Island and Queens, with the sunrise over Astoria in Queens. You can see bo the Triboro […]

Because I Put In The Time

This is Manhattan, on both sides of the river. Sort of, technically, but not really. This morning I ventured to Roosevelt Island, which is a long narrow island in the East River between Manhattan and Queens. For jurisdictional purposes it is a part of the borough of Manhattan and New York County, but apart fro […]

Pink Rims, Pink Through and Through

I have searched around a bit for any indication that this bicycle with its pink rims is a regular fixture at this storefront at A Second Chance Designer Resale Boutique on Prince Street in SoHo, but can find no such thing. If in fact the bike spends a lot of time chained to its color-matched […]

Downtown Syracuse at Night

The Niagara Mohawk building is a landmark of downtown Syracuse, with lots of beautiful art deco details. It is as beautiful during the day as it is here lit up at night. This dates from a trip visiting my in-laws Thanksgiving weekend 2009.
