Central Park: Arches & Bridges

Central Park Bow Bridge on The Lake

Arc. Arch. No its not a case of to-may-to vs. to-ma-to. They’re actually different. The word arc describes a shape (segment of a circle) but an arch is a structure or object containing one or more arcs. Who knew? You learn something everyday. Which brings us to the subject of today’s post: Central Park’s Arches & Bridges. (Did you notice that smooth segue?)

The East Side Bridges of New York City

DUMBO Brooklyn Bridge 013

My recent trip to DUMBO marked my first visit to the Brooklyn Promenade. The Promenade is a short strip located right along Brooklyn’s waterfront and is accessible via Brooklyn Bridge Park and small side streets. It offers really nice views of Lower Manhattan and the three lower East Side Bridges (Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and Williamsburg Bridge).

The High Line

The High Line

The High Line is a public park that was built on an abandoned elevated freight rail line on Manhattan’s far West Side. Visiting has been on my agenda since the spring but I didn’t get around to visiting until a few weeks back.

Midtown Manhattan Architecture & Interiors

Midtown Manhattan Architecture - Bank of America Tower & 42nd Street

Midtown Manhattan is home to a number of tourist attractions (ex: Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, The Chrysler Building, etc.) However, there are a few lesser known but equally interesting buildings and interiors that are also located nearby. I happened to be in the area with my camera one day and decided to take a few photos of facades and other items that I thought were interesting.
