Marine Traffic

Marine traffic on the East River, NYC.

Two Bridges

The Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Taken while in Brooklyn last week.

Morning from Brooklyn Bridge Park

img_2569On a very blustery morning. Walking the Brooklyn Bridge Park this morning and took this shot of Manhattan across the East River.

Bridges

Brooklyn Bridge

View of Brooklyn Bridge from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. I think there was some maintenance going on last Fall when this photo was taken.DSC_9145-001

Floating Petri Dishes

A cruise on one of these will never be on my Bucket List*.

Ikea Water Taxi

The Ikea Water Taxi runs from the pier adjacent to the Ikea store in Red Hook to the old Fulton Fish Market Pier on the east side of Manhattan ( Pier 11 ). The views from the taxi are incredible as you cross the East River.DSC_8507-001 DSC_8514-001 DSC_8539-001

East River Morning

The East River is busy with commerce, even early in the morning. Large housing projects, probably a legacy of Robert Moses.DSC_8032-001DSC_8038-001

Early Morning in DUMBO

DSC_8015-001Reinventing itself, DUMBO has now become a destination as well as a trendy place to live. With the new Brooklyn Bridge Park along the East River it really makes this area very attractive. The views of Manhattan are wonderful from this vantage point.

Artwork on Roosevelt Island

DSC_7864-001DSC_7867-001DSC_7871-001I think the artwork relates to the FDR Four Freedoms Memorial Park that is currently under construction on the southend of Roosevelt Island.

Above the Crane

On the tram, from Roosevelt Island, as it makes its descent into the Manhattan station.DSC_7891-001DSC_7892-001DSC_7890-001

Views from the Tram

Some images taken on the Roosevelt Island Tram, looking northward through the glass of the tram. Above the East River you see Roosevelt Island on the right side and Midtown Manhattan on the left. It was a fun ride and if you have a valid Metro Card that is all you need.DSC_7888-001DSC_7887-001

West Side of Roosevelt Island

A seagull was one of the few signs of life I encountered along the promenade this particular morning. A view of the underside of the Ed Koch Bridge, looking west towards Manhattan.DSC_7834-001DSC_7830-001

 

Four Views of Lower Manhattan

The yellow-checkerboard building is interesting. These views are from Brooklyn Heights.

 

Brooklyn Heights: Look#4

Looking down a side street in BH you can see Manhattan in the distance. Brick homes and buildings mixed with early wooden homes on tree-lined streets.
