Guest Post: Some Favorites
Ellis Island ~ where my grandfather from Ireland entered the USA. This is CyberCelt with a guest post that I am happy to write for one of my favorite blogs, New York Nitty-Gritty. This wonderful blog features the photographs of Frederick Otilius.
My mother, father, older brother, and older sister were born in NYC, Bronx, and Brooklyn. Despite being the first member of my family to be born in Houston, Texas, I have been to New York City several times. However, it took Oti's photographs to show me the real New York City and to make me remember my visits.
I want to share just a few of my favorite pictures on New York Nitty-Gritty.
Happy Birthday to the Empire State Building ~ this was the highest building in NYC when I was five.
Little Man Big City ~ for Aunt Doris who was the first I know to use the term "concrete canyons" to describe NYC
Goose Bumps ~ I remember visiting the Statue of Liberty on a cold January day when I was five.
Cage 11211 ~ For all the walkup apartment dwellers in NYC that befriended me as a teen.
If you would like to know New York City, keep visiting New York Nitty-Gritty.
