This watertower in Greenpoint is the quintessential vintage NYC watertower (in my mind).


Pieces of NYC 71: David Bowie

pieces of nyc 0071_pieces

No disrespect intended, but when David Bowie passed away in January of 2016, New York City lost its shit.  Fans mourned with candles and teddy bears and whatnot in front of his residence, local papers published lists of his favorite NYC locations, and memorial murals popped up everywhere.

Fast forward almost two years.  This clever piece is hidden in plain sight in that area that’s not quite the East Village, but it’s also not technically Greenwich Village Either – just east of Broadway.  I can’t identify the street.  Good luck finding it!

Pieces of NYC 70: Peacocks

pieces of nyc 0070_piecesThe Prospect Park Zoo has free-range(ish) peacocks!  It’s a cute little zoo, and worth the $10 or so to get in once in a while.*

*This is one area in which Chicago excels.  The Lincoln Park Zoo is not only bigger and more exciting, it’s also free.  Sorry Prospect Park, all the wild peacocks in the world won’t change my mind on this one.
