We drove up to New Jersey for Thanksgiving this year. Our last experience on Amtrak had been a crowded mess, and I wanted to see if the drive up I-95 was any better. It was not. We left at 5AM and even that early the beltway was stressful. The New Jersey Turnpike was a monotonous [...]
We’re at the New York Academy of Art for The Ones, an exhibit of work by alumni from 1991, 2001, and 2011. Amy’s turn to show work should be in five years for The Sixes, if this pattern keeps up. Studio tours follow, with Canadian student Cory Dixon showing us around. Lots of ecorches about, [...]
Full photoset here. We went to New Jersey last weekend to spend Thanksgiving with Amy’s family, and to witness the baptism of her brother Bob.
Full photoset here. NYC locals and tour guides have recommended walking the Brooklyn Bridge and ending in Brooklyn to have pizza at Grimaldi’s, though in our case we wanted to end up in Chinatown and have dim sum. So, going against the normal tourist flow on a warm morning last month, we headed for High [...]
Columbus Day Weekend Trains: Nine minutes of video shot with my phone from various trains we rode through the holiday weekend: the Amtrak Northeast Regional, an NJ Transit commuter between Elizabeth and Penn Station, and the subways of New York. Gets a bit loud in places.
We spent Saturday in New York to check out art in Chelsea and meet up with a friend. (Sorry to all our other New York friends, there was really no time for all of you wonderful people!) Here’s some of the art we looked at in Chelsea: Thomas Connolly’s New York landscapes Dan Witz’s In [...]
We went up to New York City Saturday afternoon, lunching at Soba Nippon and checking out the art at NY MoMA. This was my first time visiting MoMA, and oy, what a crowd. But the mess of people (a more yuppie-ish art-viewing audience than one would see at the Metropolitan Museum or National Gallery, by [...]
Amy and I spent the weekend up in the NJ/NYC area, shopping for clothes and picnicking in Clinton on Saturday, and bussing up to New York after church on Sunday. We met up with Marc and Kate for dim sum in Chinatown, and originally had planned to check out the MoMA or Guggenheim, but having [...]
Here’s a bunch of photos from the 6120c to show the phone’s camera quality. I forgot to mention that the camera has a feature called “Panorama mode” — this lets you take one photo, shift the view, take another, and if they line up the camera app will stitch the two along an overlap, as [...]
To make it to a 6AM flight out of JFK from the NJ suburbs while spending as little as possible on transportation, we decided to go the ultra-hard but super-cheap way: NJ Transit to Penn Station, LIRR to Jamaica, and AirTrain to the airport — leaving at midnight to catch the last of the NJT [...]
