Thanks to the camera stylings of SoundBeacher, here are some fabulous shots of the West Side of NYC.
The hyperbolic paraboloid building below really stands – there are rentals available, in case you want to live there.
The amount of construction going on along the West Side of NYC is staggering. These new buildings are over the Hudson Rail Yards.
The townhouses below have grassy back yards and are on the river front, albeit a public walking path between them and the river.
Reason for our visit to Weehawken, NJ to see the dueling grounds of Alexander Hamilton. On the bluffs overlooking Manhattan on July 11, 1804, at 7am, he and Aaron Burr held a duel.
On another day , we were in NYC and had a view of Weehawken from the other side. We had walked around the streets where these large new homes are perched up high. These do overlook the entrance of the Lincoln Tunnel and the day we were there the buses were bumper to bumper, I don’t think you could even open a window in these houses or the bus fumes would kill you, at least during drive time.
Thanks SB – an architecture and history tour. Perfect.
Happy Saturday – albeit gray and misting rain now. It rained heavily at some point last night, and also I heard a huge coyote fight – something got killed and that coyote must have a full belly.
