Dream of Brooklyn

    Newer Older

    you can't hear it from the photo,
    but it was so noisy and smoggy
    there!

    It was actually the
    most...

      Love this. Really nice, old fashion feel. Looks like a productive trip

      The trip was odd for loads of reasons. I kind of liked NYC, but shooting there is frustrating, it was my first time and every shot just looked the usual point and shoot tourist shot... whatever I did. And then, loads of great photographers have made photos of NY, it's hard to compete when u are just one more tourist with no inside knowledge of the hidden spots etc. ;)

      Next time you come here, first check out some of the discussions in the New York groups. We are often pointing people to the places where the tourists don't often go. This spot happens to be one of my favorite places also. Great views of two bridges and downtown Manhattan as well. The building on the left is one of the oldest commercial structures in Brooklyn. Rather than restore it completely, the parks department has retained only the walls. Events are often held within.

      Thanks , I wonder when will me next time I'll go. I did some search on flickr before, but didn't find anything, I found their map a bit useless for search, and it didn't either give me any group discussion results. I should have joined one of the NY group and asked... next time ;)

      The group simply titled New York City has some helpful threads and guesswherenyc has photos of many obscure areas, some of which are geotagged. Next time.

      I see you're from York. You have the world's finest train museum!

      Thank you , I will really check next time.
      In (old) York, there are loads of great things, including the railway museum indeed. Not sure we beet NY though ;)

      Don't sell yourself short. NYC's St. Patrick's isn't even in the same league as the York Minster. I learned more about Medieval culture and psychology in two days in York than 16 years in formal education. Plus, in York I experienced my first hedgehog. So much of what I had read suddenly became clear.

      hehe, yes, York is nicer in some ways ;)
