Canopy of Trees

I love how these trees bend over to completely cover the sidewalk at Clinton and Stanton Streets. I wonder how long it will be before some developer comes along and builds on the lot that these trees live on. With all the development going on in this area, I'm guessing their days are numbered.

CK Billboard

The current ad at the famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) Calvin Klein billboard on E. Houston Street. I usually shoot this from a passing taxi or bus. Today I was on foot.

FDR Drive

Looking north from Corlears Hook along the eastern edge of Manhattan. The Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive (formerly known as East River Drive) and the park to its left were built by Robert Moses. Moses also had a hand in the building of the apartments which line the drive from here all the way up to 23rd Street.

Corlears Hook

I was visiting a friend earlier tonight and snapped this from the balcony. We're looking east from East Broadway & Montgomery Street towards Corlears Hook.

Turning Green

It seems that with every passing hour, there's more green on the trees. They appear to follow some schedule, with some turning green sooner than others - just like in autumn, where some trees always manage to hang onto their leaves longer. I love watching the seasons change!

StuyTown Feeder

I was wandering in Stuyvesant Town - NW quadrant, I think - and I came across this feeder.

Monster Tree

These trees which line much of the perimeter of Stuyvesant Town remind me of the evil monster trees in The Wizard of Oz.

Home Run

Opening day at Citi Field. The NY Mets home run apple, a long-time fixture at the old Shea Stadium, now has a new home greeting arriving fans outside Citi Field

Spring Trees

I don't know what kind of trees these are. But, they're in bloom all over the neighborhood. Seeing them today reminded me how lucky we are to have so many trees lining our streets. Who said Manhattan was a concrete jungle? The first photo is looking north on Clinton Street towards Rivington; the 2nd is the corner of Clinton & Delancey at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge.

Track Walking

Was on a moving 7 Train trying to snap the double-decker rail cars (LIRR?) we were passing over. Instead, I caught some workers walking along the west-bound tracks.
