While I’m waiting for my car’s oil change, I decided to try mobile blogging and this funny post titlte came to my mind.
The more hits I get for my blog, the beter. The list of countries where my viewers are keeps growing, and the latest addition is Vietnam.
So, HIT ME!
As I wrote here before (and as you saw in my pictures), New York is the city of street parades. One of the most spectacular is the Gay Pride Parade. Looks like this is a world wide phenomenon. Everybody, gay or not, has a lot of fun, under the careful watch of NYPD officers and politicians do not miss this great opportunity to gather some votes. This year’s parade is coming soon, but in the meantime please enjoy my images from last year’s event. Hopefully I’ll be back with 2012 images once current year’s edition takes place.
In 2011 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp started to organize a cherry tree festival, to celebrate spring and the beautiful cherry tree promenade on Roosevelt Island. It also honored the victims of the of the powerful earthquake and tsunami which struck Japan in 2011. It was a nice warm afternoon, combining spring beauty with Japanese traditions. See images below.
I was away for a short vacation in New England and was not able to post any new Manhattan images. To my surprise, hits kept coming, now totaling over 7500. That means that 10000 hits is just around the corner, which is really nice. It also makes me think that 100000 hits by the end of this year may not be out of reach after all. Therefore new Manhattan pictures will be coming , as regular as possible. As my recent trip produced lots of great pictures, I will not post them here since they are not Manhattan oriented. I might however start a new blog soon , for the rest of my images. What do you think? Any feedback will be much appreciated.
Did you hear about the Occupy Wall Street protest? What started in downtown Manhattan in Zucotti park last year in September, spread worldwide. Once NYCPD moved in and cleaned the park, only pictures remain. Not sure though if the movement accomplished anything so far, other than boosting tourism in downtown Manhattan. If you want more reading, additional information on this link: Occupy Wall .
But I did accomplish something – very nice pictures posted below, and a little movie posted here.
A stroll at Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn gave me the opportunity to take the images below. As you can see , this is Jewish neighborhood. New York is a melting pot, with different neighborhoods all over. Visiting New York seems like visiting the entire world in a day .

Once the costumed parade ended, there was a display of antique cars to end a very fun day in Coney Island, Brooklyn.
