Park Slope Manhattanhenge

•June 1, 2011 • 2 Comments

Huh? That’s right. I was in park slope, brooklyn for the event but I still snapped an interesting water tower sunset from our new apt. What is Manhattanhenge?  It’s a semiannual occurrence where sun aligns with the east–west streets of the street grid of Manhattan. You can checkout some great shots and examples on flickr here: Manhattanhenge Photos and also from twitter here: NYC Manhattanhenge.

Yup, there’s a parade for that too

New York City must be in the running for city that holds the most parades; and diverse parades. I came across the Veggie Pride Parade randomly the other day, led by no other, than Mr. Carrot himself.  I didn’t have the heart to tell him where I was heading for lunch.

$2000 / 1 BR – HUGE 400 SQFT Ground Level Fixer Upper SoHo!!!!!!!!!!

I imagine that’s what the Craig’s List Post would look like for this place. I love how brokers can spin anything on Craig’s List. I stumbled upon this lovely abode only a few blocks from where I saw my first apt. listing ever about 10 years ago. In fact, the description isn’t too far off.

Taken down by the east river beach in Dumbo. I couldn’t believe this place even existed and was completely empty at sunset. What a great little find!  As I was writing this post, I came accross this cool little art project taking place here called D’Art Buoy.  You can find out more about it here: http://dartbuoy.wordpress.com/

They may be small, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help out. Caught this little guy carrying his owners morning paper over on 5th Ave.

Although this photo was taken in February from my bedroom window in the West Village, I thought it was appropriate to post after last night’s crazy hail/snow storm.  I thought it was the 2nd day of spring, but it still felt like February to me.  Le Fanion is a great little French pottery shop, that seems like it’s been there forever.  Once spring REALLY rolls around, swing by to check out some of the pottery they put out on the street during their sidewalk sales.

London Calling (a taxi)

And you thought New York Taxi Cabs were expensive? Try taking a taxi in london. Walked past this beauty along 5th ave one day. Compliments to my new lens baby composer for the fake motion…
