(Photos by Joe) My friend, Polar Bear Dave, rented a boat for us to cruise around NYC yesterday and see the Macy’s fireworks show on the Hudson. I took about 1000 photos. I will post many of them in the next week or so. – The task of going through 1000+ photos and posting just a […]

This is a real time simulation of US Airways Flight 1549 “crash” landing in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009. One of my friend’s is a helicopter pilot and was in the air that day. He said when he heard the call come over the radio for a plane down in the Hudson, he thought it was […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) I took these photos a few months ago. The marina as you can see is a real nice place. It’s perfect for a Sunday morning stroll or to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.  It’s also called the North Cove.   Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

(Henry Hudson lands in NYC, 1609 – steel engraving of painting by Robert Walter Weir) We had a picnic the other day in Battery Park City and enjoyed a great view of NY Harbor. Joining us was Benny “the cigar Store Indian.” He told stories about Henry Hudson’s arrival in NYC. This is the third part in that series. See the bottom of this post for the others. […]

Ghostly East River

(Photo by Bald Punk) For some reason I’m always taken aback when I don’t see any boats on either the East River or the Hudson. It makes me sad. The Brooklyn Bridge looks majestic as usual. And that’s the Manhattan Bridge just upriver from the BB. It’s the one you take if you’re going to Greenwich Village to catch some […]
