Coney Island Boardwalk

Sights from the boardwalk at Coney Island. The steel structure in the first photo is the old Steeplechase Park Parachute Jump. The ride is no longer in operation but the structure remains a Brooklyn landmark. It was originally built for the 1939 NY World's Fair and then moved to Coney Island. Wonder Wheel is another Coney Island landmark.

Empire State Building

The Empire State Building as seen from an apartment in Penn South on 9th Ave. This view will be dramatically changed in a few years when 15 Penn Plaza is built. It will be nearly as tall as the ESB and just a few short blocks away from what is one of NYC's most recognizable landmarks.

Bike City

First Avenue is the latest to get NYC's new bike lane/bus lane/parking scheme intended to increase safety for cyclists and speed bus flow. The bicycle lane is at the curb on the west side of the avenue. The parking lane is next and separates bicyclists from moving traffic. The two lanes closest to the curb on the east side of the avenue are reserved for buses.
