Catch some Autumn color during our annual two-bridge photo-walk at Poughkeepsie

Grand Central Terminal - Information Booth

Saturday, October 30th
Meet at the Clock in Grand Central Station
8:15 am for 8:45 train departure on Metro-North Hudson Line

Train Ticket Prices
Round Trip Off-Peak $38.50
Round Trip Senior/Disabled/Medicare $25.50

After a pleasant 2-hour train ride along the banks of the Hudson River, we will arrive at Poughkeepsie at approximately 10:48 am. First we'll regroup at the station, take a bathroom break and meetup with those who drove to the meeting point.

We will then walk a short distance to arrive at the entrance of the "Walkway Across The Hudson" and cross the beautiful Hudson River high above the water on this exciting old railroad Trestle Bridge now a very popular park.

As we cross we can admire the beauty of the fall colors on the hills around on both sides of the river and the grand scenic views over the river, town, and the surrounding areas.

Once on the far side, we'll walk on a rustic riverside road along the shore of the Hudson to the "Franklin D. Roosevelt Mid-Hudson Bridge." Once there, we'll find the beginning of a secret woodland trail under the bridge and follow it up past lovely trails and the ruins of an old house, to a viewpoint high above the bridge and the Hudson River. Finally, we wind back down through the woods to the road bridge and cross back over to the town.

While on the bridge, we might stop briefly to discover "Bridge Music" which is music played and recorded by hitting the bridge and it's cables and heard through loudspeakers after pressing buttons on the columns of the bridge.

Finally, after snacks and beverages in town at a popular Irish Bar & Restaurant, it's time to return to the station for the return trip to New York City. We will probably leave Poughkeepsie around 5:00-6:00 pm and arrive back in the city not later than 8:00 pm
This leisurely paced walk is approximately seven miles in total.

I hope to see many of you there.

Domino Park Sunset (Weather Pending)

Domino Park

With all of the events we have been scheduling lately, we have yet to schedule one at Domino Park . . . so here it is! Domino Park is a waterside area close to the Williamsburg Bridge with views of Manhattan and interesting installations built into the ground (i.e. LED light patterns, water jets in the ground colored by LED lights, custom manhole covers, etc). From the park, you can get some great shots of:
• Williamsburg Bridge
• Freedom Tower
• Empire State Building
• Domino Sugar Factory
• Fog Bridge
• Candid Portraits
• Chris Lord (we love your ponytail)

We'll meet on the corner of Kent Avenue and South 5th Street around 4:00 PM. This will give us about an hour of shooting in daylight before we start getting ready for sunset (5:46 PM). The sun will be setting over the Williamsburg Bridge. Once the sun sets and blue hour begins, we can get some great shots of the LED installations, neon signs, and the fog bridge.

After a few hours of shooting, we can all relax at TaCocina. Tacocina offers a laid-back setting for tacos, snacks, Mexican beer, and cocktails enjoyed outdoors or to-go. They offer snacks like fresh chips and chicharróns, house-made hot sauce, salsa, and guacamole, and a focused selection of Mexican beer, canned wine, tequila cocktails, and soft drinks.
