As usual, we had a fun time in the Bronx and Brooklyn. The night before, I snapped some shots of the NYC skyline from New Jersey.
|Oops! That's clearly not NYC, but I thought you would enjoy it.|
Some folks sleigh riding.
|I didn't notice the ducks in the foreground till after I'd taken|
|NYC skyline from NJ|
|We spent the night here, before heading into the city, which I|
thought was rather fitting, one week before the Super Bowl!
To say that they have snow issues in New York City would be an understatement. Because of the lack of parking, everyone parks on the street, so it's nearly impossible to plow.
|More of the same.|
|Skyline behind barge on Hudson River|
|Where the New York Mets play.|
|If anyone would like to help me out with this and the following|
pic, I'd appreciate it. I'm clueless. The only thing I could possibly
think of, is New York World's Fair stuff...???
|Kinda futuristic World's Fair looking stuff, eh?|
|New York Times HQ, I presume.|
|I just love the ornate grating and grillwork.|
|Mr. Trucker thought this was George Costanza's parents' house,|
although they MIGHT live in Queens...
|See, in actual fact, I think this whole grillwork thing started as|
a security "bars on the window" kind of thing, then they added
curlicues to make it look decorative, then it sort of migrated
to the outside of the houses...
|A little different style|
A few last Brooklyn sights before we head into Connecticut:
|Note the cute little dog tied outside.|
|This guy was selling newspapers. And I don't think they were in English!|
|"They say no one's ever beaten the Van Wyck..."|
|"...and if it hadn't been for that five-car pileup at Rockaway Blvd..."|
|One thing I've discovered as we travel the highways & byways|
of this country: There's a museum for just about anything you could
On a totally unrelated note, I was shocked and horrified to learn yesterday of Sandra Bullock's death!
|She IS dead, right? I mean, there's no way anyone|
could survive being stabbed in the heart!
