Back in the Sixth Boro 5

Life gets lived in a linear fashion, but that’s not how it’s processed.  It seems the longer we live, the more chaotic we want processing to be. Kirby and Margaret assisted this ship into the pier this morning. All photos by Will Van Dorp, who’ll be processing regularly starting tomorrow, or so I hope.  

Back in the Sixth Boro 4b

Heraclitus has to be the classical philosopher most referred to on this blog.  I thought of this person again as I returned into the city after my longest ever so far time away;  this is a familiar place of six boros, and yet it does not seem familiar.  It is new, renewed by multiple sunrises […]

Back in the Sixth Boro 4

Here are the previous three installments of this title.  After seven straight weeks away, I’m back in the boro for a while, a short while, and it seems the best way to catch up–attempt to–is to work backwards, starting from now. A welcome sight on the west side of midtown . . . . Chandra […]

Back in the Sixth Boro 3

Here was 1 . . . from about a year ago.   But what’s this . . . hoops at a food emporium? Basketball with new floor markings and maybe new rules?  By the way, assisting along the starboard side of the RORO is Gramma Lee T Moran, the same tugboat featured in Back in […]

Back in the Sixth Boro 2

Here was the first post by this title.  I’ve been back for a few days, but it’s been hard to transition from my jaunt in Utah areas of wilderness back to the densely settled areas in and around the sixth boro of NYC.  I didn’t take the foto below of Binghamton, but her time is […]

Back in the Sixth Boro

To paraphrase the line about the chanteuse grosse and something “being over,”  I couldn’t really feel that I was back until the the fat lady came into port, then the big orange PCTC must be she.    Topeka entered the sixth boro this morning, here escorted by Gramma Lee T Moran and Margaret Moran. It […]

Retro Sixth Boro 28 a

I hope you all enjoy looking at these retro posts as much as I do putting them together.  I’m seeing that 2010 was the year I started to gallivant extensively, so the division for July 2010 retrospective is part a is for local, and part b will be for away. Count the boats in the […]

Retro Sixth Boro 26 a

May 2010 . . . I took my first trip to see the thrills of the southern Arthur Kill, thanks to Bonnie.  Back then the hull of Astoria (1925-1967 on the East River Line) was still there. Since then, I believe it’s been removed  . . . said to be an eyesore.  !@#$?!!  Here’s more […]

Retro Sixth Boro 25 b

Followingup from yesterday and “…maybe it’s time for new permutations of truckster, teamster, bikester, autoster, planester, hutster, hikester, storyster, . . . ” let me say you’ve sent in some great ideas which I’ll follow up on in the next few days. For now, let’s glance back 10 years to April 2010.  Any idea what […]

Retro Sixth Boro 25 a

On this glum April 1 and  the 25th month in a row, the blog looks back 10 years on day 1 of a new month . . .  and sometimes day 2 as well, with a selection of photos from exactly a decade back, 120 months ago.  What’s particularly interesting for me about this look […]
