  1. Queens Walk!

    Sunday, Oct 19th, 2014 at 11:07pm

    Well I've walked 14-mile-long (approx) photo walks in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. It was time for Queens. Thanks to Nicholas Cummins I had a route to take me through some of the most diverse neighborhoods.

  2. Persimmons to Chocolate and Back

    Tuesday, Jan 15th, 2013 at 6:51pm

    Back in December I was in NYC for my Crane Beach book release. One of my favorite things to do is to walk around NYC. I've done three major borough photo walks so far but I am always walking hither and yon in NY. Here is a series of photos from a walk I took starting in Chinatown where my parents live, walking over the Williamsburg Bridge, stopping at Mast Brother's Chocolate, and heading back home to Chinatown. Most of the photos are of the graffiti on the bridge.

  3. Bronx Walk!

    Last week, on March 29, 2012, I set out on my Bronx walk. Every time I am in NYC I like to explore a borough. I had been planning this Bronx walk for a while because my Aunt Frances had offered to take me around the neighborhood where she and my father grew up. I was excited.

  4. Brooklyn Walk

    Earlier this year I walked the length of Manhattan. It was so interesting - really expanding my vision of the city - that I decided to walk a long stretch of each borough over my next few New York visits.

  5. Manhattan, North To South

    Monday, May 16th, 2011 at 9:50am

    On my recent trip to NYC, I spent a sunny spring Mayday walking from the northern end of Manhattan to my parent's house on the southern end. I started by taking a train up to the Cloisters - a magnificent collection of medieval art (Cloisters). It isn't on the northern tip of Manhattan - but it's pretty far up there. It would be at about 200th. street if the streets were numbered up there.
