Leaving New York, never easy

Leaving New York, never easy

By on Jul 30. 2023 in new york | 0 comments

It is almost 9 am, and I am sitting in Shelley’s garden, for the last time, drinking coffee. The weather is cooling down, exactly like 2018 on the day that I was leaving then. In a way, I will leave home today. It is not only, because I love New York, it is because of my friends, the old and new ones, the walks and talks, we had, and the laughs and the tears....

Harlem and a few Last Times

Since my Flight back to Hamburg is tomorrow and today I have a Photo Shoot, I spent the last two days saying goodbye to places and things. On Thursday, I went to Harlem for a nice lunch at Harlem Seafood Soul, a place I heard from through the Netflix Series “Streetfood USA” (Episode “New York, New York”). I had the “Uptown Combo”...

After a three-hour photo shoot for the Project in Little Caribbean, I took the Subway to 42nd Street and laying on my back, I enjoyed the sky above Manhattan. Again, I did Street Photography on 5th Avenue all the way down 29th Street, where I met Michela for the second and unfortunately last time for a beer with a view.

Brooklyn Heights in Rain

As mentioned before, one of my favorite places in New York is Brooklyn Heights. You find some nice stores and Caf├ęs and when you get closer to the East River, the streets are getting smaller, the houses are beautiful Brownstones and the light is awesome. And at the end of some of those Streets, you’ll find the Brooklyn Promenade where you walk along the East...

One Place I missed the last time, is this little Island in the East River, where you can relax your body and mind while having a great view of both Manhattan and Long Island City. I got myself a coffee and relaxed in the shadow of a tree, enjoying the sea breeze. After that, I took a stroll through the upper east side on 1st and 2nd Avenue, doing street...

If you now ask my feet, they would suggest calling it Big Caribbean… So Yesterday Kenya and I took a stroll through Little Caribbean, me with two cameras and she had her Bag full of Stickers and Passports (More about that later). So we walked nine kilometers in seven hours, me taking photographs of Caribbean businesses for the Little Caribbean Project…...

Yes, I am on the streets again, finally. On Wednesday, I spent my time Downtown, and Yesterday, I began at Central Park and made my way through beautiful Paths from the fifth avenue side to the West side. I visited “the friends place”, before I took a break from the sun in a little Park, writing a postcard. It is one of the perks, of having so much time...

Yeah, it doesn’t sound good, does it? And it isn’t. Sometimes, life doesn’t through you a bone but a Summer Flu, to keep you at home, when all you wanna do, is to go out. Well, I was out a few times, but just in the neighborhood to get me some food. And I took a few pictures with my Phone. So, this is all for now. I am feeling better and tomorrow...

I had been off Yesterday to work on my Projects but on Tuesday I did, what everybody visiting New York should do, walking the Manhattan Bridge. You also should walk the Brooklyn Bridge, of course. And don’t do it on weekends to avoid the Busloads of tourists… Either way, the Manhattan Bridge is more of a quiet walk, I saw maybe twenty people the whole...

I just spent five minutes thinking about, whether I should write anything about yesterday. And now I do it, because it is too good of a story, not to. And it is a good example of how things can (not) work out when you are caught up in certain expectations and can’t let go of them. I was working in the garden when two things emerged … I was hungry and I...
