    It's been a labour of considerable love, but I'm delighted to announce that the updated New York photo section is now online.

    Featuring images from my trip there late last year, there over 270 new photos online, with the bar/club and café/restaurant guides being updated (it sucked having to change the Luna Lounge listing to read 'closed').

    There's still one more 'street signs and graffiti' section to be completed, but I hope you'll enjoy the photos.

    Text-only photo listing
    NYC panoramas

    I've also now added an 80+ photo gallery of NYC graffiti, shopfronts and signs.

    Phew!

    Excellent!

    Didn't we also take a couple of smiley, happy photos of me and eme after the Petit Versailles party?

    Did those disappear?

    I was wearing my snazzy orange/plaid hat, if memory serves me.

    Indeed you were - and you looked very happy in that combo too!

    I'll mail 'em to you if you like - it's just that I rarely add personal shots to my public galleries.

    Thanks for the positive feedback - putting together the gallery took an eternity, so it's nice to see it being appreciated!

    I've now added a new graffiti, signs and shops section.

    Hope you like it!

    Here's some more photos, this time from the small town of Beacon, some 60 miles up the Hudson River from NYC - well worth a day trip in you're in New York!

    I wondered if it was a little early - they'll be good pretty soon though, it seems quite a long transition iirc.

    I'm really enjoting these editor - thanks!
    Have you thought about a little photo-book on alternative New York? I've no idea how you'd go about such a thing, and printing photos is expensive, I'm sure, not to mention choosing which ones to include, but they're just so cool.:)

    And she e-mailed me back "12th - 19th or 5th - 12th = £285 with continental to New York each"

    :D

    Some more photos for y'all:

    We checked out the recently reopened observation deck at the Rockefeller Center and the views were fantastic (although it was really cold up at the top!)

    We also checked out Greenpoint, north Brooklyn, which is rapidly becoming the place to be for 'early adopting' hipsters and arty types fleeing the accelerating rents in nearby Williamsburg.

    [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of the Eat Records cafe in Greenpoint which was a welcoming, no-nonsense kind of stop off on a freezing afternoon.

    Great photos.

    You allude to Hopper in one of the comments. However your photos of people in action but alone, walking alone past a typically new york scene, alone looking in a new york shop window, have a stark hopper type feeling in a different, unique way. Those types are your best photos if you don't mind me saying so. You have a brilliant eye for them.
