New York City is divided into five boroughs, and each of these boroughs are divided into many unique neighborhoods. On the western edge of Brooklyn is the area called Brooklyn Heights, which you can see in this photo.
This part of Brooklyn contains many beautiful row houses and mansions, and they are within walking distance to the promenade. From there you can enjoy a fabulous view of Manhattan, the bridges, and the Statue of Liberty.
In 1965 the entire neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights was designated as a historic district, the first such designation in NYC. Walt Whitman worked there for many years, and the family on the "Cosby Show" resided there, as well.

A fine scenic view of Brooklyn Heights. As I intend to watch the U.S Open tennis in a few weeks in NYC, I have to make sure I trek this part of the city. The menacing clouds are well defined, noise free and are indeed the highlights of this composition. My best regards.

bella imagen de la tormenta sobre Brooklyn Heights, con buen contraste gráfico entre los tonos de los edificios y las impresionantes nubes en el cielo. El color plomizo del agua ayuda a esta sensación de un día desapacible.
No siempre tiene que lucir el sol en NY, aunque eso es lo que deseamos siempre los turistas que la visitamos.
Buena foto de la vida y el ambiente cotidianos en la Gran Manzana.

haha...i'm glad i read your note :)
So the Cosby show was filmed in this Brooklyn Heights!
very cool! I suppose you can walk down the same street with the same house...but i wonder how it is in 'real' life - we all know the "cosby" life was very goody-goody-too-shoes-rainbows-and-butterflies!
is it a safe area of Brooklyn? I have to admit I'd love to spend a day with you and visit a whole bunch of the Boroughs!
cool shot and story :)

You've certainly endured a fair share of storms this year, so I'm sure this is not an image you wanted to see pop up in your pages at the moment...but it just caught my eye this evening, Sorry. :)
I love a good summer storm, and since we'll be hitting the mid 90's next week, I welcome this sight already! A dramatic look and feel, the heavy clouds over Brooklyn Heights has quite the atmosphere and anticipation of nature at work. A relatively simple scene, but one with visual impact. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
