Views from Brooklyn Heights

On the way to the promenade this past weekend, I saw Brooklyn Heights in a new, gorgeous light.

Flowers & Rain

I set out on Tuesday morning with the objective of capturing spring's most beautiful flowers. Once at Columbus Circle, I realized that only the daffodils seemed ready. I may just have to wait until May (with a cup of tea in hand.)

Queensboro-Manhattan Bridge

Standing parallel to the Brooklyn Bridge, the Queensboro-Manhattan Bridge may be easy to miss. Really, though, it deserves attention. And I'm giving it here.

This one was delightful. It started off with the hiss of vinyl recorded on video and the taste of sweet cinnamon, and continued through the experience of a sudden Spring. Then there was the summertime music of Ella, and the exciting music of Beethoven (as sight-read by our chamber group.) There was a Saturday trip to the library, where the librarian commented on the classic movies I had rented ('Casablanca' and 'Citizen Kane'), and a late-night annual run to Fairway on the Upper West Side, where I observed stereotypical New Yorkers. I cleaned my apartment thoroughly, dusting, mopping, and organizing, and left room for a walk on the Brooklyn Heights promenade.

Along the way and while there, I bumped into staff I love, and realized that I do love New York. I realized that the Chrysler is my favorite building in the City, and that she looks beautiful even from Brooklyn. I capped off the weekend with my first chocolate shake, and now think I'll be ready to tackle the week.

Friday Night Light

The same old neighborhood, seen through Friday night spring light.

The soundtrackI Can't Get Started - Ella Fitzgerald

Not pictured: a morning much improved by adding my first (ever) iced coffee. Time spent with books after work. A long day ended with a cinnamon apple crepe (one of the best, I was told) and a soundtrack for spring. I'm so glad it's finally the weekend. What are your plans?

Some Days

Some days, you just need cake. To share with workmates.
