My wife and I had last Saturday off from work and whilst looking for something to do indoors on a blistering cold winter morning with windchills driving down the temperature into the single digits we found ourselves at what was the old Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower in Brooklyn.
What a treat it was considering the unique architecture of this iconic building. Completed in the late 1920’s in a modernised Byzantine-Romanesque style with 63 foot vaulted ceilings this place could have been a church!
Considering I was heading to a flea market I did not carry any of my Nikon’s and as the old saying goes the best camera is the one you have with you, I used my Google Pixel for this shot.
Nothing says home like a hot dog. A Nathan’s hot dog. I swear, even though I’m a vegetarian I might take a bite of one if I was back there. I never made it to Coney Island when growing up but there was a Nathan’s on Long Beach Road that we would go to every once in awhile. A huge cavernous building which was never very crowded, as I remember.
The famous Coney Island Cyclone roller coaster.
