The Future Of My Relationship With Peet’s Coffee

  I had a recurring order with Peet’s Coffee for 9-10 years. My oldest email from them dates to 2003. It’s a bit unusual that I even know about them because their only East Coast presence was a brief stint as coffee supplier for the Au Bon Pain chain of restaurants 10-12 years ago. But […]

St. Mary’s Yonkers [Immaculate Conception] Side Altars

These are the side altars at St. Mary’s Church in Yonkers, NY, which I have featured numerous times before. The top photo, left altar, has a statue of St. Mary, the bottom photo right altar is St. Joseph. I realize the top image is askew and has an unfortunate flare.  Correcting the skew would lose […]

While I don’t expect to recapture that […]

Snowy? Not at all. We’ll see if it changes overnight. Meanwhile, here is a photo of a small bridge in the […]

Jersey City Skyline

I really like this view of the Jersey City skyline in the morning when the buildings reflect the morning sunlight.  I have featured it from just a slightly different perspective before. I also have the reverse view from Jersey City and a good view of the rear of the Colgate Clock.

Kosciuszko Bridge, from Review Avenue, Queens

The Kosciuszko Bridge in New York City spans Newtown Creek and carries the Brooklyn Queens Expressway or BQE over that body of water. This is, therefore, where the BQE gets its name.* Calvary Cemetery is to the left, and you can see a single cross peeking over the wall. Calvary is well known by almost everyone, […]
