He also very rarely ventures in where he is not expected, but he is not above poking in a camera here and there.

I’ve previously posted many pictures of the interior of St. Mary’s church building in Yonkers, NY (also known as the Church of the Immaculate Conception). The school affiliated with the parish, which I attended, closed a few years ago. The parish has rented the school building and much of the parish hall to the City […]
Late post today, and I might take off tomorrow for Thanksgiving. These advertising murals change from time to time. The murals are done by local artist Chico, who also did the mural on the front of the liquor store around the corner. Happy Thanksgiving Day, everyone!
This is one of those occasions when I feel it’s appropriate to post the original image before I started playing with it. Below you see the shot as it came directly out of the camera. To fill in the story, I shot the image in a 3-exposure bracket, not for HDR but just so I […]
Good dog. This is in the Concourse below Rockefeller Center. Lots of reviews claim that Eddie’s Shoe Repair offers the best shoe shine experience in the city. I just go because it’s local and convenient to my office. The shines are thorough, and can take a while, and because of both that and its reputation […]
Coney Island is a tough place to live in the best of times, with more than its share of poverty and crime. It has not fared well since Sandy hit. Just the opening of the linked news story is devastating, quoting a woman who traveled 6 miles on foot and by bus just to acquire […]

I think this is an abandoned school building, bu tit’s hard to find out for sure. I would probably have to find and ask a long time resident of the neighborhood. As best as I can tell, the building has looked like this for at least a few years, and maybe longer. Rivington Street is […]
This is the view from the opposite direction from this image, taken from the Grand Avenue Bridge and facing east instead of west. Newtown Creek separates Queens and Brooklyn for as long as it runs, which is probably 20-25% of the total border length. If I’m oriented correctly, everything in the near distance from the […]
