Amazing how this building can seem so light and airy and one with the clouds and sky…
Taken with my iPhone camera on one of those sunny Brooklyn Bridge days! A favorite day of mine is a bicycle ride over the Brooklyn Bridge, some pizza on the Brooklyn side, and Peaches and Cream Ice cream… and the view of Manhattan is breathtaking!
A view from the Queensborough Bridge facing downtown, Manhattan on the right, the United Nations standing tall and Queens to the left. Taken from a car window, racing across in “rush hour” traffic, with my iPhone.
Fishing the Narrows at dusk from the Brooklyn side of the harbor. What you don’t see is the Verrazano Narrows Bridge to the left and Staten Island across the water.
Looking across the lower East River to Manhattan through the Majestic Manhattan Bridge. Taken with my iPhone. You can see the new Freedom Tower if you look carefully. The Brooklyn Bridge is often the one photographed but The Manhattan Bridge is equally striking. The Brooklyn side has a lovely park and I spotted a lone Cormorant in the waters below.
A favorite sight of mine around the city…
An interesting article I’ve posted before.
The Broadway/Fifth Avenue Bicycle path facing downtown, the Flatiron Building at the intersection of 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue and Broadway. The heart of New York’s Silicon Alley. I rode my bicycle to midtown 2 or 3 times a week last year from Brooklyn and often made better time than the subway!With the new bicycle lanes and Citibikes, New York City is becoming a more bicycle friendly place to be… but it is all still new so beware of rogue taxis and unaware pedestrians looking up.
