My Day Trip To Lower Manhattan

Yesterday I spent the afternoon in lower Manhattan. The purpose of said trip was to attend Forgotten New York’s tour of old lamp posts. While interesting I realize that the manifold variety of old lamp posts to be found in Gotham are probably not your cup of tea. So here are a few photographs I took during our trek.

Someone on Beaver Street lost his Winnie the Pooh pillow case.

Speaking of Beaver, I finally beheld the William Beaver House in person.

Aside from having a rather mischievous looking beaver for a mascot it is sheathed in a bizarre arrangement of black brick and yellow tiles and touts a “five star view”.

Sadly the same cannot be said of its neighbor.

Darth Vader slept here.

This is just plain wrong.

This hails from the bridge over the Battery Tunnel.

And last but hardly least, what would a journey through one of the biggest tourist traps in Manhattan be without a nod to the visitors to our fair city? The Mister hates them. I, on the other hand, do not really mind. I like to photograph them.

Especially when they do goofy stuff like this.

  6. No self-respecting beaver would ever build a piece of crap-ola like that. Ever see a real beaver dam? Now that’s architectural integrity.

Tell me what you're thinking...
