NYC meet pics part 2: Brooklyn and the bridges

Alright, starting where I left off on the last thread: the Brooklyn Bridge approach.

An unfamiliar angle of a familiar building.


Peek-a-boo


Going up the Bridge. Why the hell are the streetlights on?


Civic Center oldies


Think you know what a skyscraper box looks like? Think again.

That's the police.

US Court, a building that's definitely underrated, esp considering that it was designed by the same guy as Woolworth


This seemingly boring building somehow manages to look awesome, despite its surroundings that offer a whole lot to look at. No wonder I saw its pic on an exhibition in Guggenheim Museum once.


And here's the first of the many street views we're about to see from the bridges. Welcome St. James Place, squeezed between the projects and a skyscraper full of telephone equipment.


Powerful.


The projects north of the bridge


East Downtown south of the bridge

Hell, there's a clear boundary between the rich and the poor
well actually I don't think you can be too poor to live so close to Downtown
anyway whoever thought of building the projects within blocks of the City Hall was on drugs

Haa, Confucius Plaza burned down! (look at the upper windows)


Downtown core


The stuff New York is made of


Lookin great even next to ol' Municipal


Continuing up the bridge...


Trapped in the projects


I dunno what Ace was photographing


jacksom is awesome. When it got colder he gave me his hat. And he's a cool guy overall.


That's East Midtown from about the midpoint of the bridge when looking northwest...


And looking southwest we see the corporate power of Downtown...


And if looking southeast, you can see the skyline of where we are headed - Kings Co.


What the hell, whenever I try to take a group picture it always looks as if Dennis is up to something not to be done in public and everyone else watches in awe


jacksom and Swede. Its good to know that both hemispheres got cool people.
and that implies that the rest of you suck! Boo to all!

Almost having crossed the bridge we are passing next to DUMBO - a small nifty neighborhood with lofts for coffeeshop-attending, boutique-shopping yippies


And more are being made from old offices or factories or whatever the hell that was


SSC is off to Brrrrrooklyn!

"Welcome to Portland", as I introduced Dennis when we left off the bridge (all fellow GTAers will get the reference)
I think we went off the wrong exit off the bridge or something, but that goddamned concrete pathway continued for half a mile or something!

And here's the brand new Federal Courthouse:


"Did you just a pic of the entrance to that building?!" asked Jan when I took this boring shot. Then I came out and said it's for Emporis, this confessing that I'm evil .


I dunno if Dennis was checking out pizza or his photos but definitely he was about to say "shit".


After the delicious (well, could've been better to be honest) pizza we went outside to continue our trip, this time turning around back in the direction of Manhattan. Well, where else could we go being right in the center of Brooklyn Downtown?


Cool. My first time on the Manhattan Bridge, even though I've been around for 5 years.

If one comes to NYC for one week, he's gonna see most of what he wanted to see. If one comes to NYC for a month, he's gonna see half of what he wanted to see. If one lives in New York, he is never going to see the whole city.

And we are off back into Manhattan.


Looks like they've got something interesting to stare at... and this time it's not Dennis bent over or something (thank God)


Yea, this sure beats the hell out of Dennis bent over (no offense, but I'd rather not see men bent over)


And again, those retarded projects right near the Civic Center. See the brown square box right behind the projects? It's the city police HQ. I bet that project got less gang problems that you'd expect a project to have.


Badass.


Well at least those guys got a point... For one, apparently our mayor provides shitty education...


Manhattan arch of the Brooklyn Bridge


Leaving Brooklyn...

...entering Manhattan, where we will take a trip through Hong Kong and then head off into Midtown. Stay tuned for Part 3.
