From above, the park glows green like a massive 843 acre emerald … read more

West 52nd Street - A Work of Art

Scaffolding casts long shadows across the sidewalk while the air is filled with dust and the sounds of construction. Besides derelict buildings and abandoned lots, shiny high-rises make their slow ascent into the blue sky. This is Hell’s Kitchen or, more accurately, the west 52nd Street portion of … read more

The side streets were the connection to the rivers. Today, the dream that many had in the early 1800s has, once again, become a reality … read more

Meet 59th Street

I was giddy with excitement having the iconic Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and more recently renamed the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge) alongside me as I began my walk on 59th Street.
