DUMBO (via ferry) 9/22/19 9:15 a.m.

Dumbo (down under the Manhattan bridge overpass) is one of NYC’s hippest, historic neighborhoods with unsurpassed views and the best pizza!   Best of all, this trip takes you to the spots where you can take some of the best photos of NYC.  Make sure your camera battery is charged and ready to go.  As an added treat we will be going by ferry.

OLD RHINEBECK AERODROME - 10/20/19 10:30 a.m.

Enjoy the best air show around!  Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome both entertains and educates.  Shows start at 2:00 p.m. with a vintage fashion show and car parade.  The flying starts at 2:30 p.m.  and runs till about 4:00 p.m.  The stars are the historic airplanes , including a 1909 Bleriot, the oldest regular flying plane in the Western Hemisphere; the Fokker, triplane, the most famous fighter of WW1, and a precise replica of the “Spirit of St. Louis”.  In addition, to the Airshow there is a museum.  There will also be pumpkin bombing, a fall festival and a WW1 spectacular with pyrotechnics.  Admission is $20 for seniors.

CHINATOWN - 11/10/19 10:00 a.m.

Chinatown, NYC is the largest Chinatown in the U.S.  Founded in the late 1870’s by Chinese immigrants, Chinatown offers a unique, historical and cultural experience not found anywhere else in the world.  Photograph the sights, feel the pulse, challenge your senses.  There  is something for everyone.  An endless array of restaurants, teahouses and bakeries to sample.  Supermarkets, fresh produce and fish markets.  So join us as we explore the neighborhood.

Hangar B is the home to Floyd Bennett Field’s historic aircraft restoration program
 (H.A.R.P.).  We will go inside the Hangar to photograph the dedicated volunteers working on the collection of historic aircraft.  Their goal is to restore the aircraft to nearly original condition. The volunteers have even built a full scale model of Wiley Post’s Lockheed Vega “The Winnie Mae” from scratch.


Visit the Tulip Festival at Holland Ridge Farm in Cream Ridge, NJ.  Starting in mid-April, you can stroll the grounds, pick flowers and more.
The Tulip Festival will boast 50 acres of vibrant flowers to photograph in addition to a tulip market, plus restored barns with furry friends.  Purple, pink, orange and yellow - a rainbow of blossoms will spring to life sprouting up to form a colorful quilt of flowers across the property.

UNTERMEYER PARK and GARDENS (Yonkers) - May 2020

Untermeyer Park and Gardens is the Gardens from a former grand estate in 
Yonkers.  Photograph the walled garden with its Greek - styled temple and amphitheater, the Temple of Love perched on a rocky outcropping and the sweeping Vista that descends to an overlook above the Hudson River and Palisades.  In addition, there is the color garden and gatehouse, a river and stream garden, and a ruin and sundial garden.  
Untermeyer Park is a beautiful and peaceful GEM of a park.  The flowers, fountains, architectural details, and especially the view are FANTASTIC.  Go and you won’t be disappointed!
