Train – 2015

Posted in Environment, Photography with tags , , on September 30, 2015 by kozmicdogz

Amtrak

Headed home from Penn Station in NYC to Richmond, VA along the way every once in a while another train would whoosh by so close you could have touched it if the window were open. We did not collide, we were not in danger, but quite an experience. Speed, color, and sound like nothing one usually hears on a typical day.

YokoOno

We missed Yoko Ono’s “One Woman Show” by one day. They were already taking it down. The show was on the 6th floor of the Museum of Modern Art and it was the first day of a Picasso sculpture show which we also did not see.

We were about to dock at Ellis Island. As I touched the large wooden doors of the main building I had a flash of my grandfather grabbing and holding open the same door as he walked into this same building over 100 years ago.

The registration hall on Ellis Island. At the far end of the room you can see three of the podiums the agents stood at and asked the new immigrants questions to see if they would be admitted to the United States.

The New York Skyline from the ferry on the way to Ellis Island where all four of my grand parents entered the United States in the early part of the last century.

The tallest building on the left is One World Trade Center which opened in October 2014.

FlatIronBuilding

Zipping by in a taxi we caught a glimpse of the Flatiron Building. It was the subject of a famous Edward Steichen photograph taken in 1904 which hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We will have to visit the MET on our next trip.
