Naked bone of an echo

Big Bang Theory



Have been having a fairly relaxing and fun school break so far. I made the mistake (or maybe not) of going through my pictures folder and realized that not only did I slack off in doing what I intended to do with this journal last year but I haphazardly posted some of the photo spreads meant for this journal only to Facebook (for shame!).

I love you LJ. Sorry I neglected you!

In an attempt to right those wrongs, I am going to update this journal with some of those spreads (which go back to late summer of last year) before I get too wound up with this coming semester to have the time or impetus.

First off, Hayden Planetarium- Rose Center for Earth and Space. Living literally across the park from this gem, it's shameful that it took me 7 years or so to make a real trip to it. I had been to it many times when I was younger but it has since been renovated and redone thanks in large part to it's most awesome director.

Moving right along with playing catch-up with this journal and my compulsion to document everything, let's go further downtown this time.

In September of 2009, made a visit to the new High Line park, walked along the Westside Highway and discovered that the Frying Pan was still in use begging to be explored.

The new High Line elevated park is a reuse and transformation of an abandoned industrial structure into a verdant public park 30 feet above the ground. The Frying Pan is a boat that spent 3 years under water, was salvaged and now exists in all its decayed glory off the West Side Highway.

Highlights before I completely cover this post with tons of photos (because really the subject matter was just too juicy):

The day was absolutely stunning. It was a late August day. Hot but with beautiful blue skies lacking the normally oppressive humidity that makes NYC summers so distasteful.
