Thanks Juan. you're absolutely right. I went back to the folder to check, and I had been to an art show at the new pier gallery on Van Brunt Street. I know I walked from there to where I took this picture, but from the aerial photo I cannot tell for sure where there was a bench in June of 2000 when I took it.

Also, as you point out, if you look carefully you see the right side of the Statue which would place me further north, in this area, when I took it.

Good detective work.

Thanks for stopping by, detailist. One must be very patient when participating in Panoramio. Just the same its always fun to greet people when they visit.

Sorry I missed you comments last July, Michael. Somehow I messed up, but I do appreciate the effort you made when visiting.


detailist on November 21, 2009

haha... ®mene and detailist are just two of three folks inside of my head: me, myself and I.

Yes you're right when beeing patient with Pano... i still think its worth to wait ;)

Anyway - i watched some guys at the tip of battery park getting out a fish of 3 ft (1m) out of the Hudson river/east river. Don't know which one is correct at southern most point of manhattan ;)

The meant one is comming soon. Actually i stil work the selected ones for some rows.

cheers michael

That photo seems to have been taken from the foot of Van Brunt street in the Red Hook area. Lady Liberty would not be visable at such a angle from the seawall in Bay Ridge/Fort Hamilton.Nice picture tho....P>T>

Thanks ptoomeyphotos, you are absolutely right. In fact, I've placed the photo at the foot of Van Brunt Street, I just got the neighborhood wrong. I've changed the title of the picture in honor of your correction. Cheers,

  • I like this view, well done Hank.
  • Greetings, Marco
Hank Waxman on December 14, 2013

Thank you Marco, and thanks more for going that far back to find it. This was one of those "capture the moment" photos that just appear once in a while. Thanks too Gabriela, it seems I missed acknowledging your visit back in March. My apologies. Best regards to you both. Hank
