The Sky Was Glorious For A Moment, Central Park

Last Sunday we had an unusually blue sky all over the place. It looked especially dramatic around the reservoir of Central Park.

Red Hook, Brooklyn

This was another Brooklyn expedition with NYC Photo Outings group last Saturday. We started at Smith and 9 street Subway Station(F & G) and roamed the streets of Red Hook. I managed to capture some video after the outing where the cloud formations were dramatic and quite fascinating.

Seventy Degrees Fahrenheit: Central Park

This was a walk in Central Park with NYC Brainiacs. It was the first time in a few months that we get a moderate temperature without wind,rain or snow!

Lawrence showed an interest in the species found in the park and we passed quite a number of musicians playing solo or in groups on our way…

Here is to a glowing Spring..

West Side Story, a kick off to a thousand miles Journey

Even though I have been living in the North East for almost four years now, I still have thousands of places to visit and see that are reachable by transportation means. This was a walk last Sunday that I started in Harlem’s 125th street subway station and then passed through New York’s Riverside state park all the way to George Washington Bridge.

The most fascinating thing I saw there was the lighthouse known as “The Little Red Lighthouse “!

After a few hours walking in the park, I took the train down to Alphabet City for my Cello Teacher’s performance in the Stone on Avenue C and E 2nd street. This will follow in the next post!
