My World Tuesday





I guess the moon belongs to everyone's world, doesn't it? But here it is in the Eastern sky in 3/4 phase from MacNeil Park in College Point, N.Y.

This 29-acre waterfront property is popular with runners, walkers, and families year-round for its wraparound promenade with sweeping views of the East River, Long Island Sound, Whitestone Bridge, and the Manhattan skyline.

MacNeil ParkMacNeil Park, named for one of America’s greatest sculptors, is a spectacular waterfront landscape,” said Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe. “With sweeping views of the Long Island Sound from its waterfront promenades, majestic trees, ballfields, and a 9/11 Memorial, this park is worth a detour.

Happy New Year teach. With views like that and so close to water, I'm sure that's a pretty popular destination.

Nice photo of the moon over the park. When I think of NYC, I think of Central Park so I like knowing there are other pretty places to walk, run and enjoy nature in your world.

Looks like a great place to watch the skies! Sunsets over the city should be spectacular.

I like the Promenade, Mary. I bet the lights of the city are pretty at night. Your swans on the Header are wonderful.

Lovely views of your world. I photographed that same moon yesterday surrounded by Palm trees and am sharing a bit of My Seasonal World one last time this week.
Hugs and blessings,
