The Lincoln Tunnel & Streets of New York City

To my loyal Portsmouth followers…thanks for visiting today and allowing me to humor you with another guest city post…Portsmouth will return tomorrow!

On the way into New York City on New Year’s Day, we took the Lincoln Tunnel…which was pleasantly quiet thanks to everyone having the day off from work. After we parked near our destination for dinner on the Upper West Side, I had to run and get some cash from an ATM when I saw the newsstand and the characters below, and had to snap a shot.

New York City by Night (and Snow)

Today’s post features two of Manhattan’s iconic buildings. Above the Chrysler Building can be seen looming over the streetscape, illuminated by the street lamps and cabs all reflecting off the wet streets thanks to the evening’s flurries. Below, the Empire State Building is wearing its Christmas colors and illuminating the surrounding flurries in contrast to the dark streetscape below.

I rang in the new year with my sweetheart in the New York/New Jersey area. After getting dinner on New Year’s Day in the city with friends, I asked (pleaded) for a quick drive past some landmarks to snap a few shots. Always happy to have the chance to shoot!

New York City Fireworks | West Side Highway

New York City closed down its West Side Highway for spectators to take in the fireworks shot over the Hudson River in honor of the 400th anniversary of its discovery.  They had 4 or 5 barges shooting fireworks simultaneously up the river…quite a spectacle! There were 10s of thousands of people along the highway (a guesstimate)…and the city did an excellent job keeping it orderly and enjoyable for all.  Will post a gallery to my FLICKR soon.  Tomorrow afternoon’s post will feature fireworks from Portsmouth as taken from South Mill Pond.

July 4th | New York City

In New York City for the weekend and tonight’s fireworks!  Happy birthday America! (And happy 400th birthday to the discovery of the Hudson River!)  We’ll be watching from that little strip of highway at the bottom of the frame…they’re closing it down for the night, should be quite a scene.

New York City | Guest City

Traveled this weekend to New York and had the chance to stop by the Hudson River in West New York, New Jersey.  The Empire State Building was sporting red white and blue in honor of all our veterans and fallen soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.  The city skyline was gorgeous and a thunderstorm was rolling in, but I couldn’t capture any lightning (sadly).  You’ll have to see this one full size for a better view, here:  FLICKR.
