(Photos by Bald Punk – Mount Loretto Unique Area – Click twice to fully enlarge) I’ve been to Mt Loretto Unique Area twice in a week. Once I went there with my friends. Another time was to take pictures. There are a few nice paths that cut through the foliage. It’s a great place to get naked and bird watch. […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – click twice to fully enlarge) I could never be a real good photographer. I think I’d go crazy in the process. It seems impossible to get a perfect picture. Plus I’m always jumping around and moving, I should probably take photos in a straight jacket.   Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

(Photos by Bald Punk – click twice to fully enlarge) I’m running out the door and wanted to post something. These photos are from Hylan Boulevard in Staten Island. At approximately 14 miles, I’m pretty sure it’s the longest road on the island. It starts near the Verrazzano Bridge, by the Alice Austen House(famous early […]

(Photos by Bald Punk) When I took these pics I wanted to be pissed at the kids who tossed the beer cans on the beach and mussed up the retaining wall with graffiti. It’s not that I did the same when I was young, it’s just that when you’re a teen, you don’t know which way is up and […]

(Photos by Bald Punk) For the next week all the posts will probably be Staten Island related. I hope no one minds. I’m actually changing my opinion about the place. It’s that darn camera. Taking photos really makes you focus. As for this set here, we were driving along Bay Street — which runs basically […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Turner Street in Sandy Ground/Rossville, Staten Island) Before I get into what happened on our trip to Staten Island, first I want to post some background on Historical Sandy Ground. In the previous post in this series, I had doubted there was such a place. But only because I never heard […]
