Philadelphia “The City of Brotherly Love”

Photographs and tidbits from my day trip to Philadelphia.

New York City Midtown Architecture & Interiors

Midtown Manhattan is home to a number of tourist attractions (ex: Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, The Chrysler Building, etc.) However, there are a few lesser known but equally interesting buildings and interiors that are also located nearby. I happened to be in the area with my camera one day and decided to take a few photos of facades and other items that I thought were interesting.

Interview with Yvette L. Campbell of The Harlem School of the Arts

I met Yvette L. Campbell, President & CEO of The Harlem School of the Arts at Fast Company’s “Big Bang Design Event” which was held at Aloft Harlem. Prior to the event, I had never heard of The Harlem School of the Arts but I was intrigued by the brief story of the school’s history and it’s plans for the future. I followed up with Ms. Campbell and she gave me a tour of the school and sat down for an interview shortly before the holidays.

The Brooklyn Bridge

Although Brooklyn and Manhattan are separated by a narrow body of water, they have different very different personalities. The easiest way to appreciate the difference would be to tour Manhattan, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, and then explore Brooklyn. You’ll begin to get a sense of the difference when you get about half way on the bridge and have a clear view of both boroughs.

A Walk Around Central Park

In the midst of a metropolis of glass, steel, and stone lies a lush and vibrant green space. Central Park is a well maintained and beautifully manicured park located in the center of the island of Manhattan. There are fountains and statues to be seen, bridges and paths to be explored, and a variety of arts and activities to be enjoyed.
