10-20-14 ICP Borough Walk – Breakfast In Red Hook

Kristin Holcomb led her “Breakfast in Red Hook” Borough Walk through ICP this past Saturday. We were out for over five hours. If you walk with me you can see a few highlights from the first part of the day…

10-05-14 The New North Section Of The High Line

The last section of the High Line opened last week and despite it being Sunday I decided to venture up and walk it. It is quite lovely and completes the project. Each part of the High Line has its own personality and style. This one is the most open and, to quote a sign I read, has the least amenities. But it does have some unique features.

For instance, this portion comes with a children’s dungeon!

The designers also left many of the plants that had grown up there while it was closed rather than manicuring the space.

It has great views of the city.

I bet this becomes a new iconic NYC shot.

It also has the best views of the river since much of it runs along 12th Avenue.

And happy soft ice cream vendors await as you return to the street.

They did really well. Do visit when you have time.

Nighttime

I think I will return to this challenge frequently. But I thought that I would start simply.

09-23-14 Wake Me Up When September Ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

Billie Joe Armstrong

It rained almost two inches on September 23, 2011.

But not everyone wants to block September out by sleeping

They still block it out but in other ways.

9-22-14 Last Sunset Summer 2014

As I post this at 10:29 PM EDT the Autumn Equinox is here. In New York, the summer was not very summer like. I will miss it anyway as it was a momentous season for my family.

I went down to the river this evening to say goodbye to the summer. The wind was blowing hard and the temperature was dropping. Fall is here. These are a few of the images that I brought back.
