Hotel Diptych


For the last 3 days, I have been meeting at the Crown Plaza Hotel on Broadway near Times Square.

Another Monkey


A cuter, funnier PRIMATE invades the subway system. In this case, the Nassau Avenue "G" platform in Brooklyn...

Another New Building


This one stands across Broadway from the Crown Plaza, where I shot this around 5 PM.

War is Over


Right this way--No sign necessary.
A big group exhibit, "War is Over", at Sideshow Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, attracted a good TURNOUT.
SOMETHING TO SEE...

Cab Ride


After enjoying a couple of bottles of bubbly to celebrate my birthday, we took a taxi downtown. It's always fun to see RIDERS in other cabs. We even passed a NICE RIDE along the way...

La Esquina


"The neon sign reads 'corner', a nod to the deli that preceded it, but that’s just a colorful ruse. If LA ESQUINA is as much stage set as restaurant, that’s because it’s owned by Serge Becker, the designer and nightlife entrepreneur behind such hipster loci as Bowery Bar, MK, and Area." (NY Metro.com)
Here's another REVIEW.

Williamsburg Siding


The sun returned. The better to see the sparse trees and razor wire, my dears!

Weekend Extra: Oregon


I had my Spidey Senses tingling when I saw this scene...As you know, I took a break for the holidays and went to Oregon. A visit to the West Coast's oldest LIGHTHOUSE became one of the highlights of my trip. Here's a shot from the watchman's DESK.

Of course, here's a shot from this SUMMER.

Around Noon


Today, approaching the Williamsburg Bridge, at Bowery and Delancey...

Brooklyn Vulture Reprise


Remember this big bird from a shot I took back in SEPTEMBER? You could own it for only $500. I saw the For Sale sign and just had to ask...
Here's a view of the FRONT.

Mural Detail


I saw this in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a couple of hours ago...

Happy New Year!
As you can see from the photo above, I'm back from my visit to Oregon. Through the plane's dirty window, you can see a bit of lower Manhattan (see the bright highlight just below the wing, about a third of the way from left to right?) and a little New Jersey fly-over (I flew into Newark and, boy, are my arms tired!).
Check out this shot through a window of the GIFT SHOP at the aptly named Cape Foulweather, Oregon. And, this one, too--YARRRR!
