PHOTOGRAPHER’S HOLIDAY: DUMBO WHERE THE ART IS THE LIFE AROUND YOU

WPCNR PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE DAY. By the WPCNR ROVING PHOTOGRAPHER on the Waterfront at DUMBO in Brooklyn, New York, USA. September 28, 2013:

The Downtown Under the Manhattan Bridge Arts Festival wraps up Sunday and is well worth a trip to the lively Brooklyn Bridge Park area where you can tour open studios and enjoy the brawny shoulders of the Brooklyn warehouse district.

On a perfect autumn day in the Big Town, thousands of good-natured New Yorkers from all walks of life, creeds, and countries of all ages just enjoyed the heartbeat of the greatest city in the world.

The Iconic Manhattan Bridge, built in 1909 and it carries rail mass transit. How come the new Tappan Zee Bridge can’t use this design?

The Empire Stores, one block of  shuttered warehouses, built in 1869 and 1885 that served the tall-masted barks bringing goods to and from the Orient. Running along 53 to 83 Water Street. The massive warehouse takes you back in time to cobblestone streets, pushcarts and the smell of coffee in the air

Famous Headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses above the Eagle Storage Warehouse built in 1893, now turned into condominiums. Architecture that still stirs the aspiration to achievement
