A stroll around Brooklyn

Here are some recent images from a quick tour of the Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights and Fort Greene neighborhoods of Brooklyn.  There are so many ways to make these places look great and the goal here was to do just that.  The client builds websites showcasing the best parts of a neighborhood for perspective homeowners.  Of course, these places are well known as some of the hottest real estate markets in NYC, but I still enjoyed the chance to show why.

Victorian Boston

In the Boston neighborhood of Dorchester, my cousin Mary DiCicco and her family moved into an old Victorian home originally built in 1905.  This was back in 2000, when I was still a college student in Boston and I have loved visiting Mary, her husband Mark and their sons Oliver and Julius ever since.  Mary is an artist with a great eye for interior decoration and fantastic style choices.  So after they completed an exterior renovation last year, I thought it would be a perfect chance to photograph the house.  With Mary’s help I think we were able to capture at least some of the character of this amazing home.

Calatrava in NYC

Santiago Calatrava’s transportation hub at the World Trade Center has been scrutinized and critiqued from many angles.  I needed to check it out for myself and I can tell you that it is easy to be awed by the massive white interior with its arching ceiling of steel and glass.  For better or worse, NYC has a major new landmark and it will be interesting to see how our feelings change toward it over the years.

Spring in the West Village

I spent a few hours walking around the west village as a rainy day cleared into a bright sunshine.  Wet cobble stone streets and flowering trees will get me every time.

Charleston, SC

Over the weekend I made my first visit to Charleston and although I didn’t have a lot of time for photography, I did get a chance to take in some of the fantastic architecture.  I brought along my infrared camera to make some black and white photos, hoping to enhance some of the mystery of the place.  Its a great town to walk in as all the beautiful homes are built right up to the road and each has its own flair.  Thanks for taking a look.

Newtown Creek Digester Eggs

After seeing these egg shaped structures in aerial images of New York, I had to go check them out on the ground.  They are part of the wastewater treatment facility at Newtown Creek.  The steel clad eggs were designed by Ennead Architects and completed in 2010.  For more info, here is the page from nyc.gov: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/environmental_education/newtown_digesters.shtml

 

400 Park Ave South

I went to visit this new building on Park ave south and 28th St. designed by Christian de Portzamparc.  I watched the light sparkle off the glass and was continually surprised by new angles.   Hanging out while the lunch crowd swirls around Nomad is always fun as well.  Thanks for taking a look.

Calvary Cemetery

Wandering around this cemetery in Long Island city, Queens was enchanting.  It was the perfect, cold winter afternoon with the clouds bearing down and the sun struggling to find a way to break through.  I loved the contrasts I found between the city elements like cranes and buildings and the tombstones.  But, I think my favorite moments were standing in front of amazing spindly trees and weathered statues.  In New York, we don’t have many touristed graveyards like in Paris or Buenos Aires, but this is definitely worth a visit.

 

VIA 57 West

Via 57 West is the newest building on 57th St to make a splash on the NY scene.  It is designed by Bjarke Ingels to be a mix between a European courtyard building and a Manhattan skyscraper.  I went to check it out the other day and came back with a few images, but the ground floor is still entirely under construction.  I will be back in the summer for sure.

The Whitney

I am happy I had a chance to spend some time looking at the Renzo Piano designed Whitney Museum of American Art.  What I loved about photographing this building is that the four facades are completely unique and asymmetrical.  As I walked around I kept running into different shapes and patterns of light.   The juxtaposition to the meatpacking warehouse next door was also a great contrast.   Congratulations to the Whitney on their new home.  I will definitely be back to see some art soon!
