Miss Brooklyn and Miss Manhattan

These statues are located at the entrance to the Manhattan Bridge on the Brooklyn side.  What surprised me about them was how they rotate and how they are lit up from within at night.

I took these two videos, one during the day and one at night.

They're almost ghostly.

Here's a news video  about the statues.

Some Brooklyn Photos While Visiting Newborn Evelyn 2017

My favorite bridge is the Brooklyn Bridge.
(Feel free to use these photos.)



We visited a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn that is located between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan across the East  River.




Miles and his father Ryan look across the East River.


The Manhattan Bridge  

The Manhattan Bridge is also a favorite but it lacks the stone construction of the Brooklyn Bridge towers, using steel instead.

Here is Jane's Carousel, as seen in the map above.
 It was closed that day.

Coal Burning Stove Images

I took this with me when I moved from Brooklyn to Levittown to Virginia.  It was used in my Brooklyn home when I was growing up.  I never used it but I like its appearance.  Years ago I scrubbed it down and painted it with black paint used for stoves.

Here are some images I edited for fun.














Laundry-Room & Work-Room Now Decent


A while back we had a flood in the basement due to a storm and had most of it repaired. I finally got around to turning the rest of the mess into something decent.

Laundry-Room Before
The workmen did the heavy work like hanging cabinets and counter top installation.  I did the light work after they left, cleaning up and organizing.

Laundry-Room After
I set up the counter top as a small snack area now.




Work-Room Before
This was before the workmen put up a wall to make it into a separate room.

 Work-Room After

I worked on these two rooms a half hour a day for about two months.  I wasn't interested in doing more than that each day.

Another Horror Thriller

Just before bedtime I like to watch a little TV.  It doesn't interfere with my sleeping and I'm just about too tired to do anything else.

Last night I watched a horror movie called Within that surprised me.  It fell into a standard plot; same story with different backgrounds, actors and details.

Here's the blurb:
The trailer:


Not a new idea but it was still fun to watch.

The song at the end of the movie while the credits were being shown is perfect for the movie. Maybe they should have put it at the start or somewhere in the middle.  I never heard of the group for "Are You Alone Now?".
