locations guide

Beauty; it can make a place more interesting and appealing to a person. that is why I chose my five locations. These locations have beauty, they grab the viewers attention. It all depends on how you approach beauty of course. Depending on the date and time  it can make a difference, I prefer that its best to visit these locations at the end of October or  beginning of November, and the time would be best at 2:30-5:30. This is a preferred date and time because the tree leaves set the best mood and make the streets look beautiful. Not only do the trees make the streets beautiful but also the structure of the buildings.  These locations are a good way to enjoy the time with friends, family, etc.

In order to experience these locations follow these directions. Set the starting point at New York City College of technology and make your way to 91 Tillary St, Brooklyn, NY, this would be the first location and you would see this

Next head north on Cadman Plaza W toward Clark and turn left onto Clark St, this location is the third location. At this location you should see a hotel building.

Next head east on Clark St toward Hicks St, turn left onto Hicks St and then turn left onto Orange St. At this location you would see this. At the preferred date this location is filled with Autumn colors because of the leaves.

After that head west on Orange St toward Willow St and turn right onto Columbia Heights, this is the last location. At this location you would see the image below.

This final location has a great view of the city skyline and the bridge. At anytime time it looks beautiful, However the best time would be at night time when the lights are flashing with the night sky.


Locations Project

So, for my 5 locations for this project, i honestly tried to get the most diverse places i can find/think of. For example, i chose a Planet Fitness location and also a local church. Seeing as how these two locations mostly differ than they do compare. I will try and describe what/why these locations drew me in to choose them. And I also tried my best to stay within the ‘boundaries’ of the city tech area and or immediate area.

My first chosen location was the transit museum. I choose this museum because when it comes to museums, its a hit or miss with me, some can bore me out of my mind, and some can intrigue me to a point of searching relevant topics on the internet. And i recently went to the tenement museum around the city. What draws me to this location as a happy place is how it connects us to the past in an interactive and fun way.

My second location is St Joseph High School. As i am kind of surprised to see a high school around the area, i like to see this kind of educational diversity in the area. I honestly thought that the area was more of a ‘campus site’ than a neighborhood. But what somewhat adds to my surprise is that i usually don’t see ‘high school looking’ kids around when I’m transiting to classes or home.  I guess i can call this a happy place since its another school here in New York to educate the future.

My third location is Planet Fitness. I chose this place cause it caught my eye since i work out as well. Seeing a close by gym can maybe open up some doors later in the future for me if i want to join them. But another reason can be that this place continues to tell me that the city tech area is more of a residential area than just a strictly business side of Brooklyn. I can easily call this a happy place since it promotes good change in peoples lives.

My fourth location is Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare. I chose this place because i sort of got really hungry when seeing the place on Google Maps. I pictured sirloin steak with some other tasty dishes, and also how classy this place might be. I plan on visiting this restaurant one day due to what I’ve read on the reviews on it. And its pretty close by to city tech so I’ll stop by with a friend some time to grab a bite. I place this location as a happy place as well since, well, food is good.

My fifth and last location i chose is St. Boniface Church. i chose this location due to how it brings culture and religion to such a business and commercial area. As i said earlier, i stated how places such as this and planet fitness shines a light on how diverse the area is. I can guess that many religious families attend this church daily and or on Sundays, since it’s interior and exterior are so extravagant and is a nod to how good architecture is done. Lastly, this place is also a happy place since it represents a place of cleanliness and prosperity.

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.
