New York City snapshots

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

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.

The magnificent Empire State building.

The fabulously eccentric Flatiron building.

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

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!
