Doors on Bethune Street

Marc photographed these on Bethune Street in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York, for me for Thursday Doors 8/11/2022 https://nofacilities.com/2022/08/11/clay-hill-synagogues/.

Jamaica Bay

A short trip to Jamaica bay netted these. It was great to see that the East Pond is once more accessible. This is thanks to the efforts of dedicated birders like Andrew Baksh, who worked with Gateway National Recreation Area to see to it the the pumps were repaired. The water levels are now maintained at a lower levels so that both shorebirds and birders may use the shores of the pond.

Jackson Square GV

Jackson Square at the beginning of Horatio Street has lovely plantings. I added a couple of odd photographs taken locally: A spooky dead rose and someone sprayed a stencil of an angel on the sidewalk.

High Line and Little Island at Sunset

It is a little cooler in the evenings and many people go to the Parks by the Hudson River to enjoy the sunset.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

After our morning visit to Green-Wood Cemetery we ate our picnic at Brooklyn Bridge Park. We were lucky to find parking on John Street by the ConEdison Farragut Substation. After lunch I bought an ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. I enjoy ice cream on a hot day. I processed these with cooling blue and violet filters to change the time of day plus added skies.
