North Central Park

The first set is from the Ravine and Butterfly Gardens in Central Park (map). A few of these gave me a bit of trouble to identify.

The second set of flowers are in the Conservatory Garden. I am stuck on the last two. Does anyone know what they are called?

A friend, Fritz, from the Butterfly Club in NYC helped me identify the red daisy like flower. It is Great Masterwort (Astrantia major ‘Rubra’).

Central Park at Last

My first trip to Central Park this Spring was this morning. We saw warblers and other migrants.

Bridges at Sunset

I have been super busy lately and it took me a long time to prepare these. The light changed as the sun set so I made a lot of pictures.

The evening at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo was very dramatic with a storm and lots of atmosphere.

I added a bolt of lightning that I saw strike the Freedom Tower to the first photograph.

Princely Doors

On the corner of Prince and MacDougal Streets is 205 Prince Street. Next door is o a Greek Revival/Federal building on land once owned by Aron Burr. I haven’t tried the little French bistro, The Little Prince. I plan to do so soon. Many years ago there were several French restaurants there and they celebrated Bastille Day with food, wine and boules in the street. This year one Bastille Day street fair will be on July 14 on West 60th Street.
