The City That Never Sleeps

Fun shots from the city that never sleeps using the Holga and Fisheye cameras.

A double exposure from the southernmost tip of Manhattan; of the Staten Island Ferry signage, placed upon an image of the infamous, Brooklyn Bridge. Two must-see destinations while in NYC put together in one frame.
To get there – Take the 4,5,6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall; Take the 4,5 to Bowling Green / N, R to Whitehall Street/1 to South Ferry

Double exposure taken on East River Drive around 102nd Street. There is a “secret” footbridge here that will take you across Ward’s Island, which is a part of Randalls Island Park. Go by foot or bike and spend time basking in the sun by the water’s edge. There are also multiple soccer fields there, so go with a group of friends and enjoy a day out!
To get there – Take the 6 to 103rd Street; To get there – Take the 4,5,6 to 86th Street/A, B,C to 86th Street (west side entrance)

Both photos taken around the same area on the Upper East Side of Central Park. This part of the park doesn’t have a lot of people, so it makes it extra fun to climb on the giant rocks that are still jutting out of the land. Grab some lunch from a nearby corner deli and set up a picnic on one of these giant pieces of graphite.
To get there – Take the 6 to 96th Street

Central Park is one of the only places that you can find trees and wildlife without it being part of an art installation. Step onto an untouched piece of land and explore. Head up towards 105th Street on the Upper East Side where you can find an amazing “secret” garden.
To get there – Take the 6 to 103rd Street

Madison Square Park is a great escape when you need to get out of your office. This space holds the infamous, and very first, Shake Shack. Grab a burger and go towards the north end of the park where you will run into some extremely friendly squirrels.
