Tuesday In My World

Another walk around my neighborhood in Washington Heights today.  Willow came along.  She was a very good photo-walk partner as long as I gave her a few treats and some water along the way.


We went to Highbridge Park and saw the tower.


Some cool graffiti trucks.


Beautiful blue fire escapes.



And the Prayer Tower atop Christ United Church on 175th Street and Broadway.


I don't know much about this church, but they had a pretty charismatic leader, Reverend Ike, who died a few years ago.


It's pretty welcoming when you walk by.


That's all for today.  Check out more Tuesdays over at Communal Global.

I love your post and photos today. The fire escapes....Wowza...awesome catch. And of course I'm a sucker for a cute dog. Love that Willow, I can just tell. I also loved the graffitti trucks. Here in Maine the graffitti is very lame. I suppose all in all that's a good thing-but someday I hope to catch something with a flair. Thanks for sharing.

Those blue fire escapes are really lovely. When Georgia and I first started going to Morningside Heights and points northward, I was completely entranced by the ironwork on the fire escapes. Still am...

do you know the purpose of the highbridge tower?
it is a giant pressure release valve for the NYC water system! (i know lots of fun facts about the water system--both supply side and waste side(yuck, but important!)

all of NYC water is gravity fed--up to about 60 feet (6th floor) after that--building owner are responsible for water towers.. (which is why they are such a common roof ornament!
