Personal - NYC - Manhattan Wander

Personal - NYC - Manhattan Wander #nyc #gramercy #thestand #katzdeli

Alright,

Today I headed out to wander Manhattan with the very talented Animator/Illustrator/Character Designer/Pencil Jockey Victoria Montes.

Found this very cool 3D printed recycle station right by my house, neat idea!

Wandered by Gramercy Park, the only private park in New York. Only the residents with buildings facing the park get keys…odd. Apparently it used to be a little shadier of a…

Alright,

Finally the quintessential New York experience, walking down 5th avenue to the Museum of Modern Art.

For those of you coming to NYC Uniqlo sponsors free Friday nights from 4-8pm and the lineup starts on 54th St. between 5th Ave and the Avenue of the Americas.

This was the result of me keeping a wall on my right hand side and wandering into a closed part of the museum…whoops! On the…

Alright,

Today I took a trip out to Coney Island. If you ever take the trip I recommend getting off at Brighton Beach (a couple stops before Coney Island Station) so you can wander through the neighbourhood.

This is how busy the station is mid-day off season!

Brighton Beach is home to a very strong Russian community.

Tons of shops line underneath the tracks, if you need Baklava or a velour…

Personal – New York City Day 14

Personal – New York City Day 14 #nyc #centralpark

Alright,

Today I went downtown to wander through the other half of Central Park (couldn’t make it through all in one day). What I didn’t know about Central Park is it took 20 years and 20,000 workers to get it to where it is today, it used to be a dump/swamp and is now home to 48 Million visitors/year.

First stop was the Conservatory Water Pool on the east side of the park. Look Mom, I got you…

Alright,

Can’t be in New York and not go and see a Yankee’s game, right? Especially when they’re playing the Baltimore Orioles (my first glove I ever owned was signed by Cal Ripken Jr.). Enough of my jibber jabber, onto the images!

It was a beautiful night for a game…

Huge atrium as soon as you walk into the Stadium.

Alright,

Today I went into downtown Manhattan to capture the climate march. I beat the crowd to 42st and was able to capture a couple images of the blockaded streets.

This is to give you a better idea of how many people filled up the streets and this was only one group of the over 400,000 people who attended the march.

Very peaceful and well organized.

Building along the route even took part.

Personal – New York City Day 9

Personal – New York City Day 9 #nyc #statenisland #ferry

Alright,

The adventure of the day was taking the Staten Island ferry to see the Statue of Liberty. Took a couple trains downtown, nice thing is the stations were connected by these long underground hallways, probably a bonus in the freezing east coast winter.

Actually a really nice ferry terminal, most of the subway stations are from decades ago but this station seems like it was refurbished…
