Regina and I traveled to Washington DC to visit friends of ours. We took a 4.5 hour bus ride on the Boltbus from New York. We had a chance to see the usual sights along with a tour of the capitol building setup by one of our friends. We even had a chance to have a nice chat with Senator Akaka in his office. Enjoy the photos!
New York has five boroughs that contain 60 community districts. Within the five boroughs there are hundreds and hundreds of different neighborhoods that each add their contribution to make New York, New York. One of these neighborhoods is Mott Haven in the Bronx. I was born and raised in Queens but never spent much time in the Bronx. For my class project we’ve been hanging out in Mott Haven trying to learn about the community. A lot is going on here in terms of community development and there’s a lot more that is not going on. Here are a few photos from a recent time in Mott Haven. Enjoy the photos and go exploring!
My co-workers and I went on a fishing trip together to Croton Falls, NY. I grabbed a day license from the state of New York here. $5 if you are a resident. The trip was redeeming in a way since the last fishing social 15+ years ago was a bust. We caught mostly brown and rainbow trout. Everyone caught at least 4-5 fish. Some even had their catch over for dinner. All in all good day. Thanks to Joe for taking us out and showing us the ropes. Enjoy the photos!
