My New York City Tag-Along

Hubby was in New York for business last week. I joined as sidekick. Whenever he was in meetings, I went out to take pictures.

1. The first location was in the Brooklyn Heights area:

Trinity Episcopal Church at Wall Street:

78. This sculpture is called Trinity Root. Created by Steve Tobin who was inspired by the remaining stump and root of the 70-year-old sycamore tree that shielded St. Paul's Chapel against falling debris during the collapse of the twin towers on 9-11. St. Paul's Chapel is in Trinity's parish.

I was in NYC this past week. It's interesting to see a different point of view from the same location.

I love your photos. Such intimacy.

The woman with the crazy hat in picture 62 is something else!

Brooklyn looks very nice & very livable. The views across to Manhatten reminded me of 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' - by Walt Whitman; one of my favourite poems. When I ,finally, find myself on a Brooklyn ferry, I know that poem will be in my mind.
