New York, New York

28Apr09

On Saturday I went to NYC with my friends, Wendy and Debbie and some members of their club, the Cranberry Digital Photography Club. We took the train from Hamilton and the subway once there. Our first stop was Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center). It was mid-day and hazy so the photo ops were not optimal but it was fun and a GREAT view. On one side we could see the Empire State Building with the Statue of Liberty far in the distance. On the other side we could see Central Park and hundreds of people in Strawberry Fields enjoying the beautiful warm day. (See photo.) We stopped in at Grand Central Station and I used my monopod to snap a few. It was getting later in the afternoon by then so we took the subway down to the Brooklyn Bridge and joined hundreds of others and walked across to Brooklyn. After a much needed rest and bite to eat we went to a park alongside the bridges (Brooklyn & Manhattan) where we waited for the sun to go down and lights to come on. Thanks to Debbie and her GPS we found a subway in Brooklyn that took us where we needed to go and we didn’t have to walk back across the bridge to get home. It was a fun day with some new sites and experiences. Thanks Wendy and Debbie!

  4. Hey D –
    I really like these shots. Great designs and unique perspectives. I especially love the bridge at dusk w/ NYC in the background and the “summer” shot of Central Park. Hugs, Sis

    Great stuff…I really like Strawberry Fields. I don’t know how you found it; I could barely see into the Park.
