The new transportation hub recently opened at World Trade Center in Manhattan. This is how it looks like:
Since the opening of this blog, I’ve had quite a lot of viewers (over 100,000 hits from 117 countries), so I’ve decided to expand the original theme of my blog, in order to avoid opening a second website with images from other places I’ve seen. So from now on, I will publish images of faces and places from New York and not only. Berlin today. More to come.
Just a 5 minutes ferry ride from the southern tip of Manhattan takes you to Governor’s Island , a nice place to spend a few hours (or more), with a beautiful Manhattan’s panorama in front of your eyes.
Just about one hour away from Manhattan (no traffic…) there is this wonderful park where people can relax for a day, and escape the “jungle” of skyscrapers. You can walk in the forest on the numerous trails, or just relax by the lake (seven of them) and enjoy the scenery.
Have you heard of Montserrat? No, not the famous opera singer, but a small country. I didn’t, until tonight. To my surprise, on the list of countries which show me my blog’s visitors’ geographic location, this new name appeared. I immediately “googled” it, and I found out it’s a small island in the Caribbean, with about 6000 inhabitants. One of them discovered my blog tonight, and I hope he/she enjoyed my pictures. I feel honored and I salute my reader from Montserrat.
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.
Because we live relatively close to Central Park, we go there often, and of course every-time I take pictures. This is how the park looked yesterday’s afternoon on a gorgeous day.
One of the newest parks in Manhattan is High Line Park . Somebody had an interesting idea to transform an old rusty railroad track into a place for recreation. You can see the result below.
