Advice from a whale:
Make a splash!
Move with grace and beauty.
Keep a song in your heart.
Remember to come up for air.
No blubbering!

A humpback whale feeding in the waters of the lower New York Bay and Raritan Bay. These are the bodies of water between New Jersey and Staten Island, New York City
.
The second and last pics were taken by my son @arthrsdays who was using my 55-300mm lens.
.
Such a treat to see a humpback whale in the waters surrounding the city!

My favorite place is Central Park because you never know what you're going to find there. I also like that when I look out the windows of surrounding hotels, it's seems like I'm looking out over a forest.

For it is up to you and me
to take solace
in nostalgia’s arms
and our ability
to create
the everlasting
from fleeting moments.

Paddle boarding and taking in the views of lower Manhattan along Pier 3, Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York City

Pier 3 opened last week, its most prominent feature is a large central lawn protected from the wind and sun by groves of trees and shrubs.

Sunset colors over the Triborough Bridge, New York City
.
The Triborough Bridge is a complex of three separate bridges and their connecting viaducts or elevated expressways, which connect the three boroughs of Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx.
.
The above is a view of the Queens-Wards Island span of the bridge. The Triborough Bridge complex has been called the “biggest traffic machine ever built”.

Because New York City, for all its flaws, really is kind of magical. Limitless. The energy is a tangible vibe that you feel every day, a jolt more effective than any caffeine.

Finding a little oasis in the middle of City Hall Park, New York City
.
The fountain by Jacob Wrey Mould features a broad granite basin with semi-circular pools at the sides, and a central cascade. Four ornate gas-lit candelabra, later replaced by electric lamps, anchored the corners.

The fireboat John J. Harvey pumping water to salute #OneWTC as it passed by yesterday during the #CityofWaterDay in New York City
.
City of Water Day is a free annual festival organized by the Waterfront Alliance to get people to, on, and in New York harbor and its surrounding waterways.
.
The fireboat John J Harvey retired in 1994 but was recalled to service by the FDNY on 9/11/01. She pumped water for 80 hours until water mains in lower Manhattan were restored to service.
.
This summer, artist Tauba Auerbach, evoking the Dazzle camouflage patterns painted on vessels during the two world wars to confuse enemy u-boats, has transformed the fireboat into a contemporary ‘dazzle ship’. The exhibit, Flow Separation, is part of the Public Art Fund’s current exhibits and will be viewable from land until May 2019.

Every moment is a crossroad in time. Consider that, as above so below and as inside so outside and live accordingly.
