OpSail 2012 brought tall ships to New York for Memorial Day and Fleet Week.
Just like last time, I dragged myself out of bed early and all the way downtown to see the ships at Battery Park. The weather was cloudy and grey with the threat of rain all day, but even so, I managed to get a little sun burn.
Due to the weather, most of the tall ships did not have their full sails out, but they’re still impressive nonetheless.
Seen on a recently closed Boston sports bar located about three blocks from my apartment:
While I agree with the sentiment, I just wish whoever wrote it could spell.
When I walk by it almost every morning, I get a little embarrassed, and my OCD makes me twitch and begs me to stop and correct them. However, I know that as soon as I whip out a Sharpie and begin the correction I’d hear the “bwoop bwoop” from an NYPD cruiser, and then I’d have to explain/convince them that I was just correcting a fellow Yankees’ or Jets’ fan’s horrible spelling. They’d probably let me off with a warning out of loyalty to the teams or, more likely, because they’d think I was crazy.
I can’t be the only one who really wants to correct them, can I?
My old apartment had an old style peephole which allowed me an undistorted view through my door. Combine that with the fact that I had an end apartment which had a view of the entire hallway of my floor, and the voyeur in me couldn’t help but take a peek at my neighbors whenever I heard them in the hallway.
After noticing that my Coolpix 990 fit perfectly over the peephole and could take pictures silently, I decided to try to take a photo whenever I heard something going on in the hallway.
The following twelve photos were taken between late 2001 and early 2003.
According to Newsday’s Neil Best (who has been following this for some time), the Tiger Woods story has graced the cover of the New York Post for 20 consecutive days. That’s one more than the old record held by 9/11.
To commemorate this historic event, I’ve compiled the 20 consecutive covers below. Enjoy.
Tourists are just about the most annoying thing about growing up and living in NYC; so much so, that I try to steer clear of touristy spots most of the time. However, when I heard that the Brooklyn Bridge was to undergo repairs in late 2009, I actually got off my butt and made a trip to see it before the repairs made it all pretty. I also combed through my photo archives to see what other photos I had of it…
