Warm Winter Fire

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.

FDR’s Study

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.

Saratoga

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.

Winter at Val Kill

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.

Vanderbilt Mansion

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.

Sideshow Signs

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.

The Fishing Hour

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.

Coney Island Pier

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.

Luna Games

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 Boardwalk Stroll

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.

Winter in Luna Park

This is Luna Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, all closed up for the winter.

Coney Island Sign

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.

Niagara From Rainbow Bridge

This is Niagara Falls on the New York/Ontario border. I took the photo from Rainbow Bridge. Niagara is always a beautiful place to visit!

Summer Bar Window

This gentleman is enjoying a beer at High Dive Bar in Brooklyn, New York. It is just getting warm enough to open the windows and let the weather in. Spring is a little more special in places where winters can be brutal.

Bailey Fountain

This is the beautiful Bailey Fountain found in Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York. Built in 1932 and financed by philanthropist Frank Bailey, the statue is of Wisdom and Felicity with Neptune and Triton at it’s base. I’m sure as summer warms up, more people will be getting a lot closer to this one.

Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch

This is the beautiful arch, dedicated in 1892 to the Union military, can be found in Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York.
