I’m very intimidated by water and to see that much, even on the screen is overwhelming. I just saw The Titanic last weekend, if you can believe it. Not one for wanting to watch people drowning. I saw many fictional types as a kid. I wouldn’t want to live in Harlem, near all that water.
Oh, heard on the radio this morning that Harlem is 45% black.
That is a gorgeous view. I was still living in Harlem when they started working on the piers and then moved before it was completed. I haven’t had a chance to actually visit it thought I’ve driven by on my way into the city. Lovely. 🙂
It’s been complete for a little while now. Not sure when ferry service will start. That’ll definitely make getting to midtown and NJ easier and quicker.
I love going there and looking out at the water. Relaxing.
Oh, I didn’t realize that. Wow, isn’t that amazing that you can’t even look at it on the screen?
Unfortunately, Manhattan is an island — we forget that because it’s so developed. The only time you really realize it is when you go far east or west. So I can’t expect to welcome you to Harlem then? Oh no.
45%? I didn’t realize it was so low.
I think I could visit Harlem, if I didn’t see the water.
Is 45% really low? From what I remember Bedstuy (?) and a couple of other cities have larger black populations.
I’ll have to check to see what it’s been over the years. But 45% sounds low, especially compared to BedStuy.
