Where the dogs come to play in Parque México, in the Roma/Condessa neighborhood of Mexico DF.
This is my favorite view in all of New York City. It’s the Renwick Smallpox Hospital on Roosevelt Island, the narrow strip of land in the East River between Manhattan and Queens. Behind the hospital, you can see the 59th Street bridge, which spans the island but there isn’t an exit, which is weird. You can’t drive to the island; you can only gain access to it on the subway (F) or the endlessly fascinating funicular.
This photo was taken in February, 2009. The ruins of the hospital were under renovation for the preparation of South Point Park. (Last I heard, it was going to be turned into a café.) My friend and I sneaked in to shoot this photo just as the sun was rising, and we had the entire tip of the island to ourselves. It was a truly amazing feeling to be alone on an island wedged between two boroughs.
