Before my trip to Austin, Max an old friend mine who is a music producer/engineer that lives in Florida wanted photos of the Manhattan skyline for an project he had coming up. I didn’t hesitate at all, I love New York City! From the sirens, car horns and the rude people, I joke around and say this city adopted me along time ago. Growing up I spent almost every weekend in the “city”, my dad once even lived in Brooklyn my Aunt Yonkers, my Uncle the Bronx, so i’m pretty familiar when it comes down to the big apple itself. My destination in mind today was Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I jumped off the subway before York Ave I wanted to cut through ChinaTown and the Lower East Side(L.E.S) and take a couple of pics before I walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Honestly I lost count of how many times I’ve been to the city, but I never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge is a famous landmark and of course was crowded with tourist. The Brooklyn Bridge also has strong ties to my hometown Trenton, N.J. The wiring that supports the bridge was manufactured in Trenton by the Roebling Company factory.
After reaching a rooftop I heard about, and not gaining access because it was blocked off and surrounded by NYPD. I walked back down towards the Hudson river near a park and took more photos. I bumped into a local we spoke for a while he was interested in what I was doing and who I’am. The stranger asked “are you a famous photographer”?
