En route to Park Slope! A view of the gorgeous Kentile Floors sign from the F train line, leading us to the gorgeous Prospect Park.
Towards the middle of the park, you can sneak down one level underneath some beautiful leave-swept grounds, mostly toured by horses.
The Prospect Park Boathouse is also pictured here - quite a sight from across the pond.
The South Street Seaport Museum recently opened a Titanic exhibit with salvaged items from the ship, replicas, transmissions, and other affiliated memoirs about the infamous sink.
A tour through the South Street Seaport’s Piers 15-17 featuring the Peking, Wavertree, and other ships docked there.
Pier 15 was recently developed with a raised park-like area that stands next to the eery Wavertree ship.
On 76 3rd Avenue between East 11th and 12th Streets, two old brick buildings stand which I pass every day on the way to work. One ground floor was once occupied by a Chinese restaurant, Yummy House and the other, a bar, Nevada Smith’s.
I always noticed that the 3 floors above in each building were boarded up and seemingly unoccupied. Sometime in the last two weeks, I noticed that demolition began on the right building, closest to 12th Street, but in a manual way - men tearing at the side of the building from the top down with hooks.
Over the next week, the wall or shell of the building pictured here was exposed - with each apartment’s fireplace showing along with what looks like layers and layers of original wallpaper exposed from possibly 100+ years ago.
You can read more about the planned demolition here and here from EV Grieve who also has a before picture.
Dead Horse Bay - where the leftover underbelly of New York City from the last hundred years continues to wash up and wash away.
