There have only been a couple of snow days this year in the New York area, but I was happy to get some snowy NYC images along the way. When photographing architecture and real estate we generally don’t choose bad weather days to shoot, so it was nice to see a different perspective on the city landscape. Thanks for taking a look!
Recently I spent some time taking in all the amazing activity at Hudson Yards. It feels like a museum of modern construction. The site is more open to the passer by than the World Trade Center area was during its construction phase. There is also the highline that gives an undisturbed view of everything going on. I know one day this place will be a gleaming addition to the city but for now, its layers of construction, finished and in-progress, make for a wild urban landscape.
Here is a fantastic kitchen designed by Sarah Robertson of Studio Dearborn. It was recently featured in Westchester Magazine and they do a great job of explaining all the intricacies that make Sarah’s work stand out. You can read the article here and check out some of the photos below.
BHDM design created 3 completely distinct model apartments at a new building in Brooklyn opening this fall. I had the pleasure of photographing them and am happy to share some of the results.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
