one day in New York – sea to heights

The sky was falling that day – yet sparse little groups were coming for the refuge of the Atlantic.

Walking the Queens World’s Fair Ruins – Seen on Gothamist

nypavillion

I took this photo some time ago along with others documenting the crumbling World’s Fair Grounds of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

It was featured on Friday’s Gothamist.  $43 million is needed to restore the facilities and save them from destruction.

Pictures from a heatwave

July, 2013, NYC –

 

summer01

An article called “10 Cities in the Western Hemisphere that Feel Cooler Than NYC Right Now” mentioned Death Valley…  The week-long inferno peaked out at about 103 degrees, with matching humidity.  Everyone has a glazed look in their eye, and walk stiffly to minimize any motion that does not involve keeping cool.   The sort of heat that gives you chills – if this was the temperature of inside your body, you’d be laid in bed with fever, taking antibiotics

Engulfed by concrete and brick; a pizza oven.
