In order to ease the loading of each page, I am dividing the list into three pages, one each for the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. Clicking on any image below will take you to the Flickr page for that image, which also has a map showing where the image was taken. As noted on Page One covering the Bronx, every image is available under a Creative Commons license that allows me to post them here with links and attribution. If that changes, any photographer featured here need only contact me and I will remove the image.
Some of these images are truly self-explanatory, but for a few I have added supplemental information about the location or subject. Finally, in the spirit of the rules for curating these lists on Trey’s app, I have not used any of my own images, but I do add an unnumbered bonus location for each borough with my own photograph. The numbering picks up with the next number after the Queens list.
Sister to Forts Schuyler (see the Bronx page) and Totten (see the Queens page). My take on this battery is here.
The Staten Island Buddhist Vihara is run by Sri Lankan Buddhist monks.
I’m not sure about either the ease or legality of access, but lots of people have managed to get pictures somehow. Just search for “staten island boat graveyard” to see many examples.
Home of the Staten Island Yankees and featuring an amazing view of lower manhattan and NY Harbor.
Very close to the ballpark above with similar views, but a very different foreground setting.
An historic and restored theater. Click through to the Flickr image above, where the comments indicate the photographer went on a tour but arrived early and was allowed to wander freely.
Gothic Revival home built around 1855. It is a designated NYC landmark. I believe it is in private hands so please do not trespass.
There is one Frank Lloyd Wright house in New York City and it is in Staten Island. Definitely a private residence, so again, please be respectful and do not trespass, but views are available from public locations.
Located on the aptly named Lighthouse Hill, also known as the Range Lighthouse.
An historic Episcopal church built in 1712, with various improvements and expansions over the three intervening centuries. Again, please be respectful of the graveyard and church interior.
Officially known as the F.D.R. boardwalk, running 2.5 miles long.
Bonus Location With My Image
Fort Wadsworth Beach, “Stepping Stones to Coney Island.” this might technically be part of South Beach, featured in the above image with the boardwalk, but there is no boardwalk here, and it is is most easily accessed via Fort Wadsworth, by heading towards the battery overlook, and then following a map down to the beach on the other side of the Verrazano bridge.
