Since this blog has almost reached 25,000 hits in less than a year, I realized it will be a good way to promote my recently opened online photography shop. Please visit and let me know what you think. Any constructive feedback will be appreciated.
Today, people on Roosevelt Island organized a peaceful rally against the local Public Safety Department, an organization which theoretically should provide a safe environment for island residents (more than 14000), which lately, under current leadership, displayed a pattern of brutality and abusive behavior against the very same people they are supposed to protect. Images of this rally below:
Sunday afternoon in Central Park.
Recent snow in Manhattan brought a lot of joy to children and not only (unfortunately, as I type this the snow is melting away due to rain and warm weather). Anyway, the fun can be seen below.
Yesterday in Central Park :
You probably saw the latest news about the huge snowstorm which hit the northeast states of the US. While some states were hit very hard (Connecticut for ex) , Manhattan and Roosevelt Island got only 8 inches of snow last night. I just took a walk outside and took those images.
Yesterday, during my Cornell hearing shown in the previous post, I had the opportunity to listen the testimony from an ETSY executive, favoring the new Cornell campus to be built, and also explaining briefly the benefits of doing business on ETSY site.
So, I’ve decided to give it a try and I just opened my new online shop with them. In the next days you’ll see more items for sale, mainly high quality prints, posters and canvases with some of my best NY photographs, suitable for home or office decoration.
I was asked by theWIRE to take pictures of a hearing in front of the New York City Planning Commission, regarding building of the new Cornell-Technion campus on Roosevelt Island. Several people presented their pros and cons about this very interesting project. If everything goes well and as planned, Manhattan will have a brand new, state of the art engineering school by 2017. For me it was a very interesting experience, as an amateur press photographer, which resulted in more “Manhattan Faces” images for my blog.
