A panoramic view of Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and New Jersey from the Top of the Rock observation deck in the GE building at Rockefeller Center.

This photo is better viewed large and on a black background, but to really see the detail, see the photo in its original uploaded size (which in this case was still only 40% the size of the photo as shot).

Stitched in ArcSoft’s Panorama Maker 4 and processed through Adobe Photoshop CS2. DSC06515, 06517.06519, 06520, 06522 smc (small).jpg

This was taken at the northeast corner of Broadway and 96th St.

Note: I chose this as my "photo of the day" for May 8, 2015.


This is a continuation of a Flickr set that I started in the summer of 2009, and continued in 2010 (in this Flickr set), 2011 (in this Flickr set), 2012 (in this Flickr set), and 2013 (in this Flickr set). As I noted in those earlier sets of photos, I still have many parts of New York City left to explore — but I’ve also realized that I don’t always have to go looking elsewhere for interesting photographs. Some of it is available just outside my front door.

I live on a street corner on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where there’s an express stop on the IRT subway line, as well as a crosstown bus stop, an entrance to the West Side Highway, and the usual range of banks, delis, grocery stores, mobile-phone stores, drug-stores, McDonald’s, Two Boots Pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, Subway, 7-11, and other commercial enterprises. As a result, there are lots of interesting people moving past my apartment building, all day and all night long.

It’s easy to find an unobtrusive spot on the edge of the median strip separating the east side of Broadway from the west side; nobody pays any attention to me as they cross the street from east to west, and nobody even looks in my direction as they cross from north to south (or vice versa). In rainy weather, sometimes I huddle under an awning of the T-Mobile phone store on the corner, so I can take pictures of people under their umbrellas, without getting my camera and myself soaking wet…

So, these are some of the people I thought were photo-worthy during the past few weeks and months; I’ll add more to the collection as the year progresses … unless, of course, other parts of New York City turn out to be more compelling from time to time.
