Catchin’ up

October 17th, 2014

It looks like I haven't updated the site in months, but I'm just working through a big backlog of photos. I'll be posting new ones just about every day until I'm finally caught up. See below for the latest posts.

Fresh coat of paint

Old Glory looks a lot sharper than she did a year and a half ago. (Was this hydrant an original '76er?)

Blue path to the sea

July 10th, 2014



This Mobi-Mat (or reasonable facsimile thereof) is one of many that have been installed in the Rockaways to make it easier for beachgoers — especially the elderly and disabled — to climb over the new, post-Sandy dunes and get to the ocean.

Where the boardwalk was

Standing about a block away, I'm facing back toward where I was when I took this photo.

121-16 Ocean Promenade

July 9th, 2014



This is one of several large apartment buildings in the area that once opened onto the boardwalk, before the boardwalk got swept away by Hurricane Sandy.

Day 922

Chai Home for Adults

July 9th, 2014



Built in 1912, this old mansion became the Hotel Del Mar in 1930. It most recently served as the Chai Home for Adults, but has remained vacant since its residents were evacuated after Hurricane Sandy. Its current dilapidated state isn't just the result of the storm, though; it was looking pretty shabby even before Sandy hit.

(In front of the building, you can see the concrete supports that held up the Rockaway boardwalk before Sandy washed it away.)
