English Project #3 Locations

The five locations I chose are;
New York City Housing Authority
BAM Harvey Theater
Hare Krishna Center
United Artists Court Street
St George Hotel

I chose these locations because I’m new to the City Tech neighborhood and I want to explore the community more. I really do not know anything about any of these locations except the Hare Krishna Center. I know this is a Hindu Temple, I know this because I am also Hindu. However, I never went to this location so it will be a great opportunity for me to walk there and back to City Tech. For the other locations I want to know more about them and see them for myself thus I chose those to be my 5 locations.

The reason I’ve chosen the locations below and pined on the map was because they were interesting in their own way. As I was walking around the city tech community, I crossed by these places and found them to be beautiful and peaceful. The colors of the leaves and the structure of the building was what stood out the most to me especially the fruit street sitting area because it had a beautiful view of the skyline, the park and the street itself.

Project #3 (Locations)

The five places I chose are commodore barry park, Commodore Barry Pool, Golconda Playground, Oxport playground, and Trinity park. They are all located on the Nassau St and Flushing Ave, horizontally, near each other, and segment to each other by one or two streets shown on the map vertically. And that is the bound where I strolled in about 2 hours, including midway break. They are having the same logo design, a design of a circle and maple pattern inside of it. The season for now is autumn, when I think of autumn, the first thing comes to my mind is maple, so I attacked a lot by looking at their logo. And there are also many real maple trees in the parks, the colors are turn into red, orange, and yellow, its very pretty. So I decided to use these parks, and the involving playgrounds and swimming pool as my locations.

Project #3 (Locations)

Throughout my walk, I’ve come across a few locations that gave me some beautiful sights that made my journey worth it. Most of these areas are along side the Brooklyn Bridge area and every sighting was new for me. This made my walk even more thrilling because I was surprised on how new everything was since I’m use to seeing just buildings on most of my walks. Don’t get me wrong the architectural design of some buildings are lovely to look at but I wanted a bit more natural aspects in my walk. I especially love that the season is autumn because the trees I’ve seen had some various shades of color which made me felt more alive when seeing them. All the sights I saw gave me a mollified but still sensational atmosphere. The first picture is the Brooklyn Bridge and at the bottom of the bridge is path that you can walk through trees with colors such as green, red, and yellow. The second picture is around where Harry Chapin Playground is. It’s a path with benches to rest and be surrounded by trees while glancing at the lower side of Manhattan. The third picture is of house from the Clark street area. I liked how the buildings looked and the area was very quiet when I strolled through it . The fourth picture is a view of the tip of Manhattan. While I was walking I saw The Freedom Tower and I took my route in that direction. I’ve come across this sight of the city, the East River and a bright blue sky while being surrounded by trees. The fifth picture is a flowery patch that I come across while exiting Cadman Plaza Park. I enjoyed taking in the vibrant sights that I encountered and taking that long walk was beneficial.
