Free activity is a phrase that will turn heads in the city. Free summer movies in the park, free wine and beer at a gallery opening and a personal favorite, free kayaking. If you are in the mood for an outdoor activity, the Downtown Boathouse and Manhattan Community […]

These are the best Asian restaurants to try on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and in Morningside Heights.
At the end of the day, could I have used a chicken egg, regular rye bread, cheese and forgo the cured Italian ham? Well, yes. But then I couldn’t say I made a sweet Goose egg breakfast sandwich and where is the fun in that?
New York is photogenic. You can spend day and night taking pictures around the city from every angle and it still feels like you are just scratching the surface.
Full Access NYC, why are you referencing Western New York in your title? First, I probably shouldn’t be questioning myself to set up some type of engaging response. Second, I was actually in Niagara Falls and Buffalo this past weekend and got some nice pictures. Lastly, there are three major airports in the tri-state area and one can take advantage of all the potential travel opportunities these offer.
New York City is one exciting, hectic, almost perpetual motion machine but this comes with a drawback. It becomes a sensory overload and sometimes you need to step outside of the city to decompress or just see some trees (or in my case a giant waterfall.)
Winter has definitely picked up the pace and today another layer of snow blanketed the city. I was out at JFK airport this morning and took a few pictures of the planes getting deiced on the tarmac and the surrounding neighborhood. I have mentioned this before but when it snows in the city you have to jump on the opportunity to take some pics before everything turns into one big grey soupy mess. The remaining pictures are of Queens and the neighborhoods close to JFK. Enjoy.
Super Bowl Boulevard took over Times Square in advance of Super Bowl 48 this week. I posted a few picture galleries of some of the performances earlier in the week.
In addition to singing and dancing there were a lot of other activities and sights to see such as seeing the Vince Lombardi trophy on display or a British Marching band just cruising down the street.
Local artists have been finding space all around Williamsburg to add their artwork. There are some great pieces in the neighborhood and I would highly recommend spending a few hours walking around and taking some pictures. If you are coming in from Manhattan, just ride the L train and get off on the Bedford stop in Brooklyn. You can find some of the art on North 14th street and Wythe Avenue (or in the general area.)
Political statements, humor, The KFC Colonel are all part of the experience as you walk around certain areas of Williamsburg, Brooklyn and take in the work from local artists. These pieces adorn the sides of vacant warehouses, fences and any other stationary objects in sight. It is worth getting a group of friends together to spend some time in the neighborhood and get some pictures to share with non New Yorkers (or your instagram account.)
If you live in the city and have a weekday off, or just want to skip work for the day then head over to Williamsburg for some great street art photos. Just walk a few blocks away from the main retail area of Bedford avenue and you will see that local artists have been adding murals and characters to the sides of warehouses in the neighborhood. The artwork is really well done and would be great to add to your portfolio.
