New York City snapshots

Williamsburg cranes

Here’s some camera phone pics from NYC (using the HTC Desire phone and the Vignette app).

Above is a scene in Williamsburg, with cranes looming in a chilly winter sky.

Bleeker Street subway

Bleeker Street subway station. Like many NY subway stations, it’s in a bit of a crumbling state.

Concorde at the Interpid space and flight museum

Now docked at the end of a pier as part of the Intrepid space and flight museum on the west side is a BA Concorde.

Although there’s a lot of reasons to hate Concorde – it was, after all, a hideously polluting plane for the rich – it remains a glorious and quite beautiful piece of engineering and it’s sad to see it no longer flying.

Empire State building

The magnificent Empire State building.

Flatiron building

The fabulously eccentric Flatiron building.

One at a time - watch your wallet

“One at a time – watch your wallet”. A discarded door in Alphabet City.

Rays Pizza, East Houston Street, NYC

Ray’s Pizza, East Houston Street, NYC – one of the many unrelated pizza parlours claiming to be the ‘original’ Rays!

Ace pizza though.

More pics soon!
