A trip along the East River to see the clouds coming from the steam stacks over the Con Edison steam generation plant on 14th Street. I had fun cutting the footage to some creepy background music from audionautix.com. It’s a pretty cool site, it has tons of Creative Commons Licensed cinematic style music. They are free to use for any purpose as long as you credit the site. The Steam plant provides heat for many buildings in the area as well as generate electricity.
I thought it would be cold enough for there to be a lot of ice in the East River, but there was not so much. Music from the play Atomic Stone Age by Alec Bennett and Michael Natale – 1998
I want to thank the 20 or so people who came to the tree identification walk yesterday. Much thanks for the large turnout goes to EV Grieve, it seems like everyone in the neighborhood reads Grieve. If interest is expressed, I’ll do more walks.
Your feedback was much welcomed. I am incorporating new features into the latest version of the map accordingly. Use the contact form to tell me whatever. You can also use the contact form to say you wish to be informed of future walks and news.
Are you interested in obtaining high resolution, wall-sized or fold-up map? I am thinking of doing this to help finance this project, as I receive no grants or funding.
I’m holding two tree identification walks tomorrow, Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 9AM and 5PM in Tompkins Square Park. I’m hoping to attract a few local tree and gardening experts to help me out in this. The public is invited, I’ll share what knowledge I have of the trees and the park in general. Please print your own map from the image I’ve posted on this page. But if you can’t do that, I’ll have a few maps on hand. Meet in the Central Plaza near the Hare Krishna Tree.
About two weeks before they leave the nest, mama is out hunting and three chicks are alone in the nest. The Annual Puke Island punk rock festival is going on below in the park. The chicks spread their wings and mosh to the music.
