Here are the unedited, unculled pix from my camera today - others may be coming from the other "strollers."




As you can see, we were amazed and pleased to be able to identify the exact location of some of Bill Cotter's photos. Also many thanks to Johnny for the NYSP tour.


A note to all who were there - As you know, I was not feeling well and left the party at 2:00 pm - I went and got checked out, and nothing serious found. However, I am not making definite plans for tomorrow (Sunday 26); will see how I feel and what the heat index will be.

Great shots as usual, Wayne. It looks like a beautiful day for your expedition. I'm sorry to hear you weren't feeling well and hope you're better tomorrow. I believe the weather forecast is good.

Photos from today posted at:




The broken concrete and missing metal letters in Gotham Plaza have been replaced with plain red concrete. Queens Museum is now fencedoff with solid boards so that you cannot see what's happening and cannot get close to look in the windows. And of course, there were dummies in the fountain and even encouraging their kids to go in. Back side of NYSP was taped off as a police staging area due to the cross-town game at Citi.

It looks like it was a beautiful day for a walk in the park. I hope you enjoyed yourself. It didn't look very crowded.
