UN View, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
The world's attention will focus on the happenings at this address the next few days. "Diplomacy's annual trade fair" will feature speeches and perhaps some "antics" from world leaders. The media is sure to be whipped into a frenzy with sound bites galore!

Pumpkins, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
It's official: Autumn has arrived on Long Island. Those invigorating cool, crisp mornings will become more numerous and the sunsets happen a bit earlier each day. Witches, ghosts and goblins..and even roasted turkey are all on the radar. Nature's technacolor show is about to begin....enjoy!

Railing, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
The Navy Hospital, built in 1838, is a national historic landmark. The building is constructed entirely of block marble and is in a state of total neglect and decay. The entire site is a reminder of just how quickly nature can reclaim abandoned buildings. Tentative plans call for a "media campus" that would involve several historical buildings at the Brooklyn Navy Yard with the old hospital as the campus' center.

Old Navy Yard, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
A little artistic license in this image of a "rusting" industry. Things are happening behind this fence however as new ventures are underway at the old Navy Yard. Stiener Studios has built acres of "state of the art" TV and motion picture facilities. The facility is complete with a boardwalk (HBO's Boardwalk Empire is filmed here), unfortunately personal photography is strictly forbidden anywhere near the studios.
