Christmas lights are everywhere in Westchester this time of year - from the spectacular to the gaudy to the very simple.   So I'm putting up a very simple display today to show how simple sometimes is better than over-the-top. This is a balcony from a pre-war building in downtown White Plains NY....
About a week ago I was kindly invited by a resident to take some photos at a coop complex in downtown White Plains called the Broadlawn.   The pre-war complex is know for its subtle use of white lights in its courtyard during the holiday season.     At first I thought this would be 100% color pho...
Sometimes when trying to show off the character of a neighborhood, I pick an unusual focal point that is a bit "outside the box".  I took this photo at dusk about  a week ago and the reason I like it so much is that it really is soooooo NYC.  It shows a roof top garden  (so typical of the Upper W...
The photo above is a scene that will be history in a fairly short amount of time.  I took it of the “old” or “current” Tappan Zee Bridge from the River Walk right at the border of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.  For those who are interested, the Hudson Harbor complex was slightly south and to the l...
ics: Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Retail in Westchester, Scarsdale, Tarrytown, White Plains We should all forget Black Friday – that’s big-box day.  Those who care about this country and their local economy should put their emphasis on Small Business Saturday.  The day we celebrate truly LOCAL business...
Topics: Building/Planning, Current Issues in Real Estate, Larchmont The other day I was in Larchmont NY – it was 11 days after the storm.  I had steered clear of the area around the Larchmont Manor for fear of just being a thorn in the side of  workers trying to clear debris, cope with flooding a...
  Before I utter one more word, I will say the obvious – the devastation of Hurricane Sandy has been overwhelming. Three branches of my family have strong roots on Staten Island and I also have a 90-year-old aunt who resides in New Jersey.  The loss of life, livelihoods and life savings is unfath...
Manhattan is so close to Westchester and so easy to access, I often wonder why more people don't migrate north.  From some locations the commute to midtown is easier from Westchester than from points in upper Manhattan.  Anyway,  it took me about 40  minutes to get to Manhattan this day and I was...
Sometimes stormy weather has a beauty all its own.  Besides, these days if I  waited for a clear day, I would almost never actually shoot anything.  Waiting for the rain and cloud cover to clear is like trying to wait for hell to freeze over - not happening anytime soon. So here is another shot ...
BOO!!! Halloween is coming and the holiday crossed my mind when I was walking in Riverside Park in NYC with a friend about a week ago.  It was near dusk but I had my camera and tripod.  The weather can only be described as dank and dark  - maybe a bit spooky if you were inclined towards that mood...
