NYC - Battery Park City: World Financial Center Plaza

NYC - Battery Park City: World Financial Center Plaza
Made by wallyg
The World Financial Center Plaza is a 3.5 acre landscaped park surrounding the North Cove yacht harbor. It is the first major public waterfront plaza built on the Hudson River, a landmark in public space design resulting from a collaboration among architect Cesar Pelli, landscape architect M. Paul Friedberg and artists Siah Armajani and Scott Burton. The plaza was commissioned by the Battery Park City Authority as part of its public art program, and is the center of Battery Park City. It was conceived not as an independent entity, but as a unique episode along the 1.5-mile waterfront esplanade. The Plaza's design is characterized by its visual imaginativeness and by a social intention, an attempt to work not for viewers but for users. The plaza was conceived as a multi-purpose space, providing the pleasure of variety via a range of open spaces for individuals and intimate groups, as well as for large public gatherings. To accomplish this objective, the team divided the site into zones. Along the edge of North Cove is seating designed by Scott Burton. Here you can watch the sunset, and read passages from Walt Whitman and celebrating the exhilarating spirit of New York City, which Siah Armajani designed into the railings along the water. In the distance is the, at the time, under construction Goldman Sachs Tower in Jersey City, NJ.

NYC - Battery Park City: Lightship Nantucket I WLV-612

NYC - Battery Park City: Lightship Nantucket I WLV-612
Made by wallyg
Lightship WLV-612 was built at Curtis Bay, Maryland in 1950 at a cost of $500,000, and when she was commissioned on September 18th of that year, she had SAN FRANCISCO emblazoned on her sides. From 1951 to 1969, the lightship served at the San Francisco Station. In 1969, she lightship was assigned to the Blunts Reef Station, located about 4.5 miles offshore from Cape Mendocino Lighthouse. After just two years at Blunts Reef, the lightship became the only one to transit the Panama Canal in both directions when it sailed back to the Atlantic coast and took up anchor at the Portland Station in Maine from 1971 until 1975. Lightship WLV-612 was transferred to its final station, Nantucket Shoals, in 1975 and served there until 1983. After pulling up its anchors from Nantucket Shoals for the last time, WLV-612 remained an officially designated lightship, but it assumed some unique missions in security, law enforcement, and public relations. After a conversion and a few seasons of charters in Nantucket, the ship is now moored at the North Cove Marina in Battery Park City, where staterooms with a view of the Hudson River could be had for $395.

NYC - Battery Park City: North Cove - America II

NYC - Battery Park City: North Cove - America II
Made by wallyg
America II-US46, a 12-meter yacht designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Williams & Manchester, represented New York City in the 1987 America's Cup Races in Freemantle Australia. America II is based at the Delamar Hotel in Greenwich, Ct and is 64 feet long, 12 feet wide, weighs 52 thousand pounds, and carries 1800 sq. feet of sail. In 1983, the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) lost the America’s Cup to Australia for the first time in 132 years, consequently ending the longest winning streak in sports. The following year they chose the America II syndicate to challenge on their behalf. America II-US46 was the early favourite. After entering the third of five rounds in first place, they had a number of key losses and were eliminated in the fourth round. Dennis Conner went on to win the America’s Cup 4-0 over Australia. She is now owned by a syndicate of 21 members of the Manhattan Sailing Club. They have brought her back to New York City and she will begin her new career as Flagship of the club and Lower Manhattan, offering corporate rate charters and public sailds.

So I looked through all of my New York City pictures and realized that I probably have enough street stuff to last for the entire month of October posting one picture a day. Well, sure it will get to the dregs but., hey. Not every photo posted to flickr is for quality, some are for pure tour guideyness. But before I dive in headfirst to that project, here's a bit of urban nature. This is the Espalande on the Hudson River in Battery Park City (the neighborhood in Manhattan built north of Battery Park, west of the Financial District (though it contains the World Financial Center), and south of Tribeca). I love this neighborhood because it's one that even most New Yorkers don't know about since it's so buried on the lower west side. I wonder what people think is west of the financial district? Their slogan is seriously, I kid you not, Battery Park City, Who Knew? One thing I love about New York City as a whole is how seriously they take their street lamps. This one is gorgeous (just my opinion). RATING NOTES 26/50 (5.2) on Score Me!

Manhattan Sunset

Manhattan Sunset
Made by anadelmann
Another one dedicated to and his wonderful sets of sunrises and sunsets. Getting closer to your long time exposures, Ray (4 seconds now), pretty much straight out of camera (some cleaning and of course the cropping) and the views here on the East Coast are quite as good as those in Seattle. This one is the most recent picture I took at the end of a wonderful day in New York City. It was taken just after sunset at the World Financial Center. The view across the Hudson River shows Jersey City to the right and the silhouettes of the train station at Liberty State Park, Ellis Island and Liberty Island with the Statue of Liberty on the left. I was thrilled when I saw how this turned out. Definitely recommended Have a great weekend, everyone.

Today was the first time I had the chance to try out my new Tokina 12-24mm wide angle lens. I have long been loking for one of these super wide angle lenses. I was all but set on the Sigma 10-20mm. I've heard over and over again that this was an excellent choice. However, I was persuaded by a salesperson in Adorama to go with this one. I mean he really made a good point. This lens is has a metal construction and is faster at f/4. So far, I am very happy with my purchase. Enjoy your weekend!

Again these pictures are not breaking any new ground, but I have taken up brisk walking along the promenade north of Battery Park City in the early evening. And I am finding the sunsets to be absolutely beautiful. So I am stopping to shoot and then post them later at home. Take a look at some of the others, I think it is worth it. And I going to write a short poem for at least one of them. Like a prize in a Cracker Jack Box, though you may not like my writing. hmmmm

I know it's a cliche but sometimes you just got to get it out of your system. Ah what the heck, I actually like this, otherwise why would I do it or post it. Why oh why am I plagued by these doubts. Perhaps I am a tortured artist or would like to think of myself as a tortured artist, which is a conceit in of itself, but one that is a lot easier than truly being a tortured artist. Hmmm circular thinking. Where is Tony Robbins when I need him?

The moment seems to flow like a molten sapphire ... And there is a deep blue silence .. Neither there is earth below, nor sky above, The rustling branches, leaves are saying that only you are here, Only me, my breath and my heartbeat, Such deepness, such loneliness and me…only me... * English translation of Imran (Javed) Akhtar's poem, in movie Zingdi na milegi dobara.... An inspiring Bollywood movie

There is a piece of a Frank O'Hara poem along the promenade at the front of the World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan. It reads as follows, One need never leave the confines of New York to get all the greenery one wishes--I can't even enjoy a blade of grass unless i know there's a subway handy, or a record store or some other sign that people do not totally regret life. I must say I agree.

Compare to the going up now. I want to make a series of then and now photos to highlight the changes to NYC skyline in five years. Also, I know how to use my camera settings now, as evident in the contrasting photos. ;)
