The Viele Map

Created by Egbert L. Viele in 1865, the Sanitary and Topographical Map of the City and Island of New York (aka the Viele map), shows the pre-grid, natural state of the island, including some 500 hills, 88 miles of streams, 21 ponds and 300 springs.

New Year’s Eve in Times Square

My first New Year’s Eve in Times Square, no commentary along the way.  Only to say, these are from different angles on different streets leading up to midnight, and they are all sequential. I didn’t make it into Times Square until after the ball dropped, but the confetti continued to come down forever.

These are for my niece, Shannon—Happy Birthday! And her brother Connor, who kept me on the phone throughout the ball drop as I took pictures from 44th Street as smoke engulfed the the Paramount Building, briefly scaring me half to death.
