Hudson River Park Part 1

We finally made it to our destination and it was worth the walk......so worth ........
ah ha ..Hudson River Park first time I have been here .......
god knows what took me so long but glad I am here 
I could look at these views forever 
Hudson River Park is a waterside park on the Hudson River that extends from 59th Street south to Battery Park in the New York City borough of Manhattan
It is a joint New York State and NYC  collaboration and is a 550-acre (2.2 km2) park, the biggest in Manhattan after Central Park 
the park offers a lot of leisure activities as well as individual and organized sports

New York City, circa 1932-1933 -- HMAS Australia (Australian Heavy Cruiser, 1928) underway in Hudson River heading north upstream. West shoreline of Manhattan looking towards top of Woolworth Building in distant skyline. Note squat, square structure just off-shore (near Canal Street in Lower Manhattan) which is a ventilation structure for trans-Hudson tunnel linking NY and NJ. Despite the filename, Christopher Street is out of frame to the left of this picture
the Queen of Hearts ready to go sailing  
these views are just like a postcard, don't you think?? more next post .........

I am taking a bit of a poll question, do you like the photos extra large or large (most posts are this size) as I cannot decide if I like the bigger photo.....please leave your comment .....Thank you !!!

As a NY native who misses it very much I thought these photos were Beautiful! And they do look like they could be postcards!
I like the size of the photos as is, but maybe it would be better if the border could go all the way around or if it wasn't there at all? :-)

Thanx Sara for the kind words coming from a native NY'er it is a huge compliment!
I agree with the border going all the way around but not sure how to do that as it was done for the smaller photos....maybe we will do some small and some big...we will see. Thanx again for your comments!!

One of the only disadvantages of being a native New Yorker is that you never get to see the city for the first time. It's easy to become blase and lose that sense of fresh enjoyment of this amazing town. Your posts bring that back - in spades. And the photography is excellent. Keep up the great work!
