New York City's DUMBO And Brooklyn Bridge Park

On our April 2016 trip to New York City, we walked from Times Square to Brooklyn's Brooklyn Bridge Park.  Below are some of my favorite images I shot from the park looking toward Manhattan.  In the distance is One World Trade, Brooklyn Bridge and Empire State Building (on different images). The horizontal/landscape images that have smooth water were long exposure images.

New York City's High Line Repurposed Railroad Tracks And Park

When in New York City, I make the High Line a top priority.  The High Line is a second level park on old train tracks in the Meatpacking District of New York City.  It is my favorite tourist attraction in New York City.  Every time you visit High Line, the views are different.  On this trip, we photographed High Line at sunset.  See the images below!
