Took this picture last weekend behind Alley Pond Environmental Center aka APEC here in NYC.  It is, of course, an Egret Something bothers me about this photo, and C&C is more than welcome

Falls Church


The waterfalls in this picture are totally seasonal, in that other than a trickle, they really only exist when the Ashokan Reservoir is overflowing.  They are downstream of the spillway.  This picture was taken from the bridge from Beaverkill Road to Spillway Road, labeled on maps as Falls Church

Ft Totten

 
This used to be the USCG Station at Ft Totten, now part of the FDNY/EMS water training.

When most people think of NYC, they think of Manhattan, the skyscrapers, the crowds (aka the Sex in the City/Woody Alan NYC) or Archie Bunker/The King of Queens NYC (the dense parts of the outer boroughs - or as we in NYC often abbreviate 'boro'),  People forget that parts of the North Bronx, Staten Island, or in this case, Queens (Ft Totten is NE Queens) are quite suburban

Cowards Falls
I just found out today that it is Cowards Falls (with an S) aka Hurley Falls.  These falls are NOT in the book Catskill Region Waterfall Guide

Monochrome Monday at Grant's Tomb

Believe it or not, despite living here in NYC my entire life (well, 14 months away while Mary was in Grad School), I had never been to Grant's Tomb.  It happens to be a whopping two blocks from my current contract, so I went last Friday

Haven't posted in a while

Hey Gang (for the 1-2 followers I do have) Think I'm going to be posting more photos here - just because
