There is nothing quite like a cozy warm fireplace on a cold snowy night. This one was at the Pine Hill Arms hotel in Pine Hill, New York.
This beautiful room was my favorite in my visit to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s home Springwood in Hyde Park, New York. It’s also an intimate view – note the wheelchair, something you would not have seen were you a guest there at the time.
This is Springwood, the former home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park, New York. FDR once famously said “all that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River”. This is that home.
For some reason, the lights on this house were just the warmest color on a cold, snowy night here in Washington D.C.
This is one more from the top of Fessenden St. Hill in Washington D.C. after the 2016 blizzard.
After 2 days of snow and cloud, the sun coming out was a welcome site here in Washington DC. Sledders were out and the mood was good as people were just happy to get out of the house. This is from Fessenden St. Hill, the highest point in the city.
These people are enjoying the snow on Fessenden St. Hill in Washington DC.
This cannon overlooks the Saratoga Battlefield in New York. A pivotal battle in the revolution, Saratoga is now a quiet and beautiful place to visit.
This is Main St. in beautiful Pine Hill, New York – deep in the heart of the Catskills.
This is the Stone Cottage at Val Kill, one of the outbuildings of Franklin Roosevelt’s home Springwood in Hyde Park, New York. Eleanor Roosevelt lived next door after Franklin’s death, continuing her work with the United Nations and other worthy causes.
This is one of the parlors in the fascinating Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site in Hyde Park, New York. Given to the National Park Service virtually intact, it is an interesting look into the wealth of the Gilded Age and definitely a look at how the other half lives.
This is also from the Model Train Museum in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I love the attention to detail
There were some great scenes when I visited the Model Train Museum in Allentown, Pennsylvania this weekend. Here is one.
Alright, this is my last one from Coney Island (can you tell I’m on a break?). I really like these vintage-esque sideshow signs. The colors were fantastic.
It was so cool seeing all these people out fishing on the pier at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. They were pulling them in 5 at a time! It’s always an interesting mix of people when fishing is involved.
This is the pier at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. It was about 4pm, so close to sunset in winter and I loved the lights and the cloudy sky.
Every once in a while I see a sign that just has to be photographed. Nothing else, just the sign. This one is at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.
Winter is such a neat time to be on the shore on the east coast. No rides, no noise, no crowds. This is still at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.
This is Luna Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, all closed up for the winter.
I finally made it down to Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. Off-season of course, but I have a strange fascination with such colorful lively places being shut down for the winter with grey sky for a background.
