I could have been an album cover designer   2 comments

Instead, I’m happy to have simply inspired others. In this case, Fall Out Boy’s new album coming in January. Clearly, they must have seen my post from August featuring a hotel lobby in New York. ūüôā

Here is their album cover, and my image below:

New York Fire Escape   1 comment

Squint a little and see how the shadows turn into stairs (or maybe you see something entirely different?).  I enjoyed the angles and the play of light and shadows on a recent walk through New York.

Old New York   2 comments

Near Wall Street in lower Manhattan, a few buildings remind us of how it looked in the early days before skyscrapers took over the island. The second  be looks like a precursor of the Flatiron Building to me.

TGIF   2 comments

Caught on the Friday afternoon train out of Grand Central Terminal in New York. ¬†I liked the contrast of posture and attire, yet they both evoke the same question:”Are we there yet?” as they wait to get to their destination and start their weekend.

Who knew that the top of the Empire State Building was designed to be an anchor for giant blimps, or dirigibles?

Empire State Top

However, it was tried only a few times, and when the Hindenburg burst into flames six years after the construction of the Empire State Building, dirigible traffic dwindled and the true purpose of the docking mast became obvious – it made the building the tallest building in the world at the time, beating the Chrysler Building. (Claiming that title was considered poor form – how refreshing, considering the incessant striving for superlatives these days!).

 

Old and New in New York   2 comments

I like the juxtaposition of old and new in New York. Here is the beaux-art facade of Grand Central Terminal from 1913 in front of the MetLife Building, built 50 years later in the International Style.

GCT Sculpture

By the way, the statue is called ‘Transportation’, weighs 1500 tons, is 48 feet (16m) high, took 7 years to build, and the Tiffany clock has a diameter of 13 feet (4m)!

Water for Gotham City   6 comments

Found this water tower on a building in midtown New York. I like how this antiquated structure was framed by the modern building behind it.

Times Square Memories (part 4)   Leave a comment

Another post of a series that I started when I worked in Manhattan. I love the excitement that the tourists bring to Times Square, each of them capturing their own private moment despite the hustle and bustle surrounding them. Here is the previous post in the series.
