I chose this hotel in NYC because it was cheap and located in the caverns of the financial district. The play of light, shadow, and reflection is a great reason to stay downtown when you visit NYC.
After ruining a roll of film at Fort Niagara, Sabu and I decided to check out an elegant military installation on the metric side of the river. I don’t remember the specific name of the fort but I like how it looks like this cannon is ready to blow up that awful McMansion. Good work cannon! We also enjoyed an overpriced lunch.
On one of my first visits to Niagara Falls my family stayed here when it was called Hotel Niagara. I think. Today, after several attempts at becoming something it is just an empty building with signs promising dreams that won’t come true. I don’t remember anything about the room but I do remember making my mother drop mail into the mail chutes so I could see it fall.
Sabu wanted to see a movie and suggested we see Vice. I thought it was going to be a movie about substance abuse and other forms of Episcopalian elegance. I was wrong. Vice is about Dick Cheney. He may be an Episcopalian but he is far from elegant. This is the neon outside of Karen Huger’s favorite multiplex where every beverage is sold as a big gulp.
They say that Niagara Falls, Ontario is the happiest place on earth. They don’t say that about Niagara Falls, NY. I don’t remember which camera or film I used for this photo but I do remember how amazing it was to walk along the edge of the gorge towards the Schoellkopf Power Station
I’m pretty sure I am on at least 13 watch lists because I took this photo.
Robert Moses hated Niagara Falls, NY and punished the city with this awful parkway that did nothing but seperate the city from the falls. The city has slowly replaced it with an elegant greenway and a two lane road.
I prefer it when my power plants don’t fall into the gorge but in the case of the Schoellkopf Power
