(Oct 26) Wheels are in motion. I have rented a storage unit.

Tried to catch the HART bus here. It never showed up. Ended up taking the Suffolk County Transit bus.

I’m going to miss this one terribly.

This one’s been visiting a lot too.

I’ve realized I don’t really take many photos in Selden.

(Jun 19) Roosevelt Island is about to get a large dose of change. It’s going to be change they won’t like one bit. It’s inevitable though. Underscoring this, it’s a Bruce Ratner project now, who will co-own the buildings, which come with free land, courtesy of the city. I can’t help but think the city is poor at selling itself to have to give so much away to those who will directly profit from this initiative. The idea that anyone has gotten a piece of Roosevelt Island free just seems scandalous.

Aside from the subway, and a bridge to Astoria, the tram is the only other way on and off the island.

And then on the other side of the tram bridge… you’re there already.

Now you see it… soon you won’t.

(Jun 15) This photoblog now bids adieu to the Sony DSC-N2 I bought in a rush to replace the short-lived Sony whatever that came after the Sony Minidisc, which came after the Kodak somethingorother. My main concern when buying the N2 was that Billy was nearing the end of his days.

Also… I have the use of a car. Photographically, this sort of changes everything.

But first, from the phone one night.

just a lot of woods
The park around the corner. Still haven’t figured out what the deal with it is.

Now that St. Vincent’s is closed, I wonder what happens to the monuments?
