This is not a secret place that requires a lot of effort to get to. It's well-known, and often-photographed...but it's still incredibly beautiful. I was down by the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC and wandered past all the tourists on the walkway, and kept wandering until I found this place, with all the old pier pilings standing there, like silent guards, lined up with a million dollar view. It was a fabulous spot to enjoy a sunset and blue hour. Empire State Building at sunset is one of the few moments you will get to marvel at its true beauty. An iconic building comes to life as the colors of the sky turn into a painting behind it. #architecture #goldenhour #red Rise and shine. #I❤️NY #sunrise #winter2017 #colorful #blue #lovemytown #citylife #cityscape #waterlust #NikonD7100 #Manfratto tripod using 10-stop ND exposed for 20sec Taken on 102 floor of the Freedom Tower.

The people in the picture gives it perspective. #I❤️NY #cityscapes #citylife #architecture #landmark #blackandwhite #iphone6 When in New York, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge is a must. I recommend going there for sunrise to avoid the crowds and enjoy watching the sun come up behind the Manhattan Bridge. #LifeAtExpedia #NYC This is taking after a severe thunderstorm. I was taking shelter at a nearby Shake Shack burger restaurant. As soon as the rain stops. I quickly get to my favorite spot and rewarded with this beautiful sunset.

I knew there was an iconic photo op of this magnificent bridge. It led me across the river to Brooklyn, an area called DUMBO (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). Such a beautiful area and some of the best scenery in New York. I highly recommend this as a 'must see' place in the city.

At this restaurant, Dim Sum dishes can be ordered anytime during opening hours from a check list menu, rather than off a cart. Shown here is the Dim Sum Platter, with ten kinds of dumplings, for $13.95. Good price, great eats!

#bestof5 It was a foggy wet day when we walked the Brooklyn Bridge. It was if a vintage filter had been applied to the day. If it wasn't for the constant traffic noise rushing beneath our feet it would be easy to image a bygone era and the hear the past echos of horses hooves and creaking carts passing by. Oh how I miss the burst of fall colours in New York City. Away from bustling Time Square and Central Park, Riverside Park on the Upper West Side of Manhattan is a quiet oasis to run, walk, cycle, paint, write or just be... surrounded by leaves turning all shades of red, orange and yellow from late September to late November.

#ny #NYC #architecture #landmark New Museum is a super current crazy art museum that always has artists that blow my mind. The entire 4th floor was a white palatte and 9 weeks later it was turned into this by allowing anyone to create art and place it anywhere in the room. They even has a scaffolding ladder for you to reach the top of the walls if that is where you wanted to place your art. The pic was taken from the top of the scaffolding ladder to give you a sense of the enormity of this truly interactive work. Yesterday was the last day so there were barely any art supplies or wall space for anything more. Yes that is a tee-pee in the middle that also served as an art palette.

I'm not the guy who will do anything to get to NYC. I like it, but I would take a remote, quiet, mountainous spot if given the choice. But if you have to be there anyway, I say make the most of it and fire away. It is pretty damn impressive, after all.

Exploring around my hotel on the Lower East Side was this amazing scene; to the left, the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge and above me and in front, FDR Drive. I've been inspired lately to make more B&W photos. An image like this really does call for monochrome - added much more drama to the shot. New York is an inspiring city, even when it's dreary outside. This image was taken in Mid-March. Spring was just beginning her approach, but winter wasn't quite ready to release it's chilly grip. There is so much to see and do in New York City that it's impossible to hit all the hot spots in one visit; however, the view of the city from across the East River on the Brooklyn Bridge is spectacular any time of day. #NYC
#brooklynbridge #dumbo #concretejungle
Photo Tip: If it's a rainy day like this one, keep a plastic ziplock bag (big enough to fit your camera in) with you. Cut a small hole in the bag just big enough to fit your lens through. That will enable you to have your camera out in the rain without ruining it. Living so close to New York City makes for some of the best weekend trips. And on the Banksy front, the latest sighting that is still unscathed is on 78th/Broadway on the side of the Loehmann's building. #banksyny Caramel latte from Toby's Estate. #delicious
Why I went to this coffee shop you ask? It;s been mentioned in many of UntappedCities NY coffee blog posts so I got curious and checked it out.
I love LOVE the bookstore and living room look of this cafe. http://untappedcities.com/2013/12/04/top-10-coffee-shops-in-brooklyn-for-design-buffs/tobys-estate-coffee-shop-williamsburg-brooklyn-nyc-untapped-cities It’s right at Williamsburg which is dubbed as the new NY cool area so I felt cool too. It's definitely the new area I'd like to hang-out at and East Village.
