Manhattan from Brooklyn

Views of Manhattan from Brooklyn Bridge Park during the OPTIC trip. An artist was using a strange contraption to make his art.

Old Pier 1 Pilings

The last stop of the OPTIC trip to Brooklyn Bridge Park was at the pilings of Old Pier 1 with a view of Manhattan at sunset led by National Parks at Night.

The Edge

After a day’s series of lectures and workshops at OPTIC by B&H Photo and Video provided and free dinner followed by a trip to the Edge | Into The Sky. Out Of This World. ( The viewing platform is terrifyingly high. For the adventurous the offer “City Climb” which allows one to climb higher. I got a thrill going out onto the glass floor. As a New Yorker I never wanted to pay to go see the Edge. I did enjoy it.

Chelsea Market

Around the corner form us is the Chelsea Market by the Meat Packing District in Manhattan, New York. Once owned by the National Biscuit Company. It is a fun place to visit and has lots of shops and eateries in it. For Thursday doors st Duff, June 9, 2022.
