New York City sunset - Newtown Creek - Greenpoint, Brooklyn
Those were the sunsets:
the ones where the city
into a pool of gold.
And we ran
hand in hand
along the waterfront
whispering in our ears
as we smiled
until our faces hurt.
Those were the sunsets.
This is a view of the New York City skyline as seen from the border of Brooklyn and Queens. I took this with the Sony NEX-7 last weekend during a rather epic journey in Brooklyn. To be fair, I was completely lost when I came across this view as I had walked in the opposite direction of where I intended to go. But it turned out to be a serendipitous experience since the sun had just begun its descent as I discovered this rather peculiar but beautiful spot.
The foreground location is Newtown Creek which is a 3 mile estuary that runs between Brooklyn and Queens. It’s also one of the most polluted industrial sites in America. During the mid nineteenth century it was a major industrial waterway. Over time, over 30 million gallons (US) of oil and sewage from New York City’s sewer system have made their way into this body of water. With such a sordid and sullied history, Newtown Creek has the distinction of being one of the most polluted industrial sites in America.

Water flooding, and the Manhattan Bridge during Hurricane Sandy.
The greatest city in the world. We survived 9/11, we’ll survive Sandy. Stay safe everyone

Dispatch from the Rockaways — the boardwalk is completely gone.
God is sorry he destroyed everything. He gave New York City a nice rainbow to make up for it.

An amazing photo of a 700 ton tanker on Staten Island moved a mile from where it had been moored.
“One thing he’s gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [the hurricane] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in…Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas?” Brown says. “Why was this so quick?… At some point, somebody’s going to ask that question…. This is like the inverse of Benghazi.”
What part of “crawl into a hole and never come out” does this guy not understand?
