To Royaldevon: Little Island

Hello Bev,

Little Island is not in the exact same spot as your photo, but it's not far away. There are actually some old, wood pilings that sit right next to the island, too. There used to be so...

To emka: Poem

Hello Malgo,

The poem was o.k. Honestly, I was expecting more, but it was a bit plain. Still, it was a free poem, so I can't complain. :-)

Have a good day!

To weetrees: Empty streets

Hello John,

In that area of Brooklyn, there are a couple of busy main streets, but the rest of the area is not very busy. I've been there twice, and it was empty both times.

Take care!

To PaulVDV: I waited :-)

Hello Paul,

I did stand on the corner and wait for someone to walk by. I was lucky to capture that man at just the right spot. It was mostly quiet the day I was there, so I didn’t have a large...

Hello Malgo,

I haven't been to the top of One Vanderbilt yet. I was planning to go before the busy summer season, but it didn't happen. Hopefully I'll get up there soon.

To emka: Your question

Hello Malgo,

Both sides are Michael Jackson. That’s what he looked like as a child! I guess Kobra wanted to show just how much he changed his face over the years…

Hello Chris,

You caught the pun. Borscht is one of their signature dishes, therefore the reference to beets. :-)

Hello Paul,

I never had spiked hair, but back in the day I did try out some interesting colors. I liked blue the best. And yes, "Nihongo o sukoshi hanashimasu", "I speak a little Japanese". :-)

Hello Paul,

The windmill was removed after the festival. Maybe we should have a permanent one as a reminder of NYC's Dutch roots. :-)
