Over to Roosevelt Island

One of the ways to get to Roosevelt Island is by tram at 59th Street.  These photos were taken from inside the tram.  The bridge is the Queensboro Bridge or the '59th Street Bridge'.




Now on the Island.

Study of Heirlooms



Loved these two tomato's and they were equally as delicious.  Thought of my friend Lori who did an amazing study of heirlooms in colored pencil for her course of study at the Society of Botanical Artists.  Click on her name to see her work.

Pier 39

 Shortly after the 1989 San Francisco Loma Prieta earthquake sea lions began "hauling out" in the West Marina of Pier 39 in the Bay.  In January of 1990 they began arriving in droves and took over the dock.
