Filed under Photos

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) Most of these photos are from Riis Landing at Breezy Point in Rockaway, Queens. A few are from Fort Tilden, which is across the street. The sculpture is called “LOOKING TO SEA” by Peter Lundberg. The waterway is Jamaica Bay. Right down the road from where I took […]

Everything is Wrong

(Photos by Bald Punk – Scrappy Doodles) In the previous post in this series, I was in Central Park being enticed by a sexy, green-colored salesgirl from Strand Bookstore. I left off where I was running after her-into the Phantom Hills of Mannahatta, possibly to my death, or at least, never to be seen again. But I didn’t die! I’m […]

Here are all the posts so far in that series: Phantom Hills of Mannahatta Into the Phantom Hills More coming soon […]

Mill Basin – Kings Plaza

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) Marine Park Golf Course, pictured across Flatbush Ave from Mill Basin, is one of the city’s greenest courses. Situated near various bodies of water, perhaps a heavy morning due helps. I wish I knew someone with a boat so I could take some offshore photos for you. I hope I can […]

Into the Phantom Hills

(Photos by Bald Punk – Central Park – Click twice to fully enlarge) A bone chilling breeze woke me from a wild dream. I was outside on my feet, and it was dark. My arms were raised above my head. My legs felt like jelly . . . I had remembered leaving Strand Bookstore after purchasing Nexus by Henry Miller, and making my […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – 50th Street and 8th Avenue in NYC – Click twice to fully enlarge) I’m running out the door right now to a friend’s of a friend’s party in the Village and wanted to put something up. It might be a HUGE stretch, but when I first set eyes on the side […]

42nd Street & 6th Ave

Filed under Photos

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) Most of these photos were taken from one corner on 42nd and 6th Ave in NYC. All the others were taken about a few dozen feet away. I remember thinking that I would have to be less whimsical and pick my spots better for the best photos, but decided against it. I […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) There are a couple of photos here from DeWitt Clinton Park on W 52nd St & 11th Ave in Manhattan. It has a great artificial turf ball field. I highly recommend it. There’s also one nighttime photo of the Chrysler Building. It came out okay. I need […]

St Patrick’s in Bay Ridge

(Photos by Bald Punk – St. Patrick’s R.C. Church in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn) Bay Ridge is one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC. There are loads of *nice homes, beautiful parks, and Shore Road that runs alongside the Narrows is a great place to go and unwind. The only downside is that you have as much a chance finding […]

Phantom Hills of Mannahatta

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) Last Friday afternoon, after work which had me gutting an apartment in Brooklyn, I took the R train back to Manhattan and got off at the 8th Street subway station in Greenwich Village. I came up the blackened, gum-blotted stairs and was met by dark gray skies. I thought it was going to […]
