Fall in Prospect Park

Bicycle Tourists

Bicycle tourists with cameras in DUMBO, Brooklyn. This cobblestone street provides a nice perspective on the Manhattan Bridge.

 

A quick note: I added a music bar to the blog. The song that is currently in the widget is a song written and played by our son, who lives in Brooklyn, NY.

I have no idea what this means. Curbing one’s enthusiasm I get….., but this?

Station Design

A look at the Coney Island/Stillwell Ave. subway station in Brooklyn.

F Train to Coney Island

Washington Cemetery can be seen from this elevated section of the F Train, as well as the yard where subway cars are parked and serviced. Coney Island is home to very large apartment complexes, something you don’t usually see in photos of the summer retreat.

Coney Island/Stillwell Ave. Station

This station is the end of the F and G lines. Subway trains pull inside the large covered area and then proceed to head out in the opposite direction. The station actually faces Surf Ave. but for whatever reason, it is named Stillwell Ave. Station. I think the station got a major facelift a few years ago. Stillwell Ave. may be the street on the left ( as you look at this image) of the Station. I have entered and exited from both sides and they both work just fine, however more shops can be seen if you enter via Surf Ave. You can imagine the throngs of people heading to the beach in the summer, cascading out of the two exits. In October it is deserted, aside from a few odd travelers such as myself :-).

In Distress

Gowanus Canal: Two ways of looking at the Superfund Site.

The Gowanus Canal can be a very picturesque place or,  depending on the light and your vantage point, it can be a pretty sketchy place with an aroma you will never forget.
