New York Public Library Main Branch

(Photos by Bald Punk) I’ve always referred to this as the main branch of the NYPL, though Wikipedia notes that its official name is the Humanities and Social Sciences Library. It’s gorgeous inside. When I worked for Lehman Brothers, one year we had our Christmas/Holiday party there. — On the same day I took these photos: Bryant Park […]

Bryant Park in the Snow

(Photos by Bald Park) Bryant Park on 42nd Street and 6th Avenue is one of my favorite places in NYC. It’s tough to walk on past without stopping. I have more photos of Bryant Park that I took a half hour before these. I will probably put them up with ones that I also took […]

(Photos by Bald Punk) NYC looks great when it snows, though it’s a little difficult to photograph. The key is to keep the wind at your back. — Okay, so this post starts off the New Year. With the passing of each month, I’m more and more excited about this blog. I’m sure it will be  […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Bryant Park) The other evening I was in Bryant Park  listening to my iPod and daydreaming. I had a venti iced-coffee from the Starbucks that’s across the street on 42nd and 6th Ave. I’m not embarrassed to admit that when I chill like that my brain waves are probably close to nil. If someone […]

(Photos by Bald Punk) Bryant Park is a great place to chill. Situated behind the New York Public Library’s main branch on 42nd Street, it packs about the most park experience per-square-foot in all NYC. There’s lots of places to sit, and a lawn where you can sunbathe and where they show movies on summer nights. Make sure to […]

Hiding Behind Coltrane

(Photos by Bald Punk – Brooklyn Museum – Les Bourgeois de Calais by Auguste Rodin) I’m in trouble. Big trouble. The only reason no one knows about it is because I’ve been hiding behind John Coltrane . . . Carrie Robbins just left our apartment. I have no idea how she found us. I guess since she’s […]
