A cold night in later fall – downtown White Plains

Managed to snap this photo just as the sun was going down.  I think I was about a half mile due south from Trump Tower at the time.    Trump is the high-rise on the far right.   The early evening was cold but the sky was particularly compelling with rich color […]

The Upper West Side – Our “river town” to the south…

Coming from Westchester and being a “Hudson River watcher” – I often find myself looking south towards the NYC skyline.  Westchester residents often look towards the easy commute as one of the biggest perks of living here.  But we often see ourselves as somewhat set apart from the city.  But […]

Brooklyn Grange Farm – Rooftop farming on a grand scale….

One of the things about living in Westchester is that NYC and all it has to offer is so very close.  Westchester may have Stone Barns, but NYC has Brooklyn Grange Farms.  Now when I say the “city” in this case I don’t mean Manhattan.  In this case, I mean […]

Grace with grit – Washington Heights NYC…

Truth be told, I really like Washington Heights.  I had worked there at Presbyterian Hospital during the 90s and have a real affection for the area.  At that time, crime rates were sky-high, but nearly 20 years later, much has changed and I am happy to see the area that […]

Neighborhood Bling – Great neighborhood or downtown photography is a “must” for real estate agents…

Home buyers want pictures, pictures, pictures.  Not just of the house they are buying but of the entire area they are thinking of moving into.  Neighborhood photos are not only informative for the buyer, they can help brand the agent.   If you want to be associated with a city […]
