Bankers Trust Co. Building

I pass this corner frequently and never noticed the details on this art deco building until now. This was originally the home of the Banker's Trust - W. 14th Street & 8th Ave.

Stormy Day

The weather was miserable yesterday with heavy rains and strong winds, though the temperature was spring-like. Looking west on Grand Street from Lewis Street.

FiDi Roofscape

There's probably no better place in Manhattan to see these juxtapositions of different angles, shapes, colors and architectural styles than here in the Finanacial District

Coenties Slip

Coenties Slip Park near the southern tip of Manhattan. This is just across the street from where I worked for a bunch of years (when I had a real job). And, no, after all these years I still don't know how to pronounce Coentis. The sculpture in the center is new and may actually be a water feature.

Interesting building in Chinatown at the corner of Canal Street and Centre Street. Part or all of this building may be vacant. There are a number of broken windows, especially on the 3rd level.

Taken from a moving #7 train on the elevated tracks near Queensboro Plaza. Silvercup used to be a bakery. Today it's a film/TV studio (largest in New York). The Silvercup sign remains pretty much as it was in the bakery days. The bottom was changed to say "Studios." The roadways in the foreground are access ramps leading to/from the 59th Street Bridge (left background).

Looking east from the Willets Point station of the #7 Flushing line. BJs and the two apartment towers may be the back side of Sky View Parc (a mixed-use complex still under construction in Flushing Queens).
