A few photos from Harlem / Washington Heights / Jackson Heights
Thanks to everybody for your support and sharing this adventure, and more particularly Rebekah Burgess and Martin Lack (see this unbelievable comment about ooamerica.com!) for their amazing nomination of ooamerica to the ‘Versatile Blogger Award’. There are a few ‘requirements’ including sharing 7 things, so here’s a start, 3 ‘random’ things I would like to share:
- I think ‘naivety’ can be the (convex?) mirror of wisdom
- It’s possible to make things better (not so sure what that means though – ‘pursuit’ kind of thing).
– and thanks to all who looked at the poll: what would you like to see during the upcoming road-trip?
Photos Harlem New York (and Washington Heights and Queens)

Gorgeous!! I really like your pictures!
Thanks red cactus! 🙂
I’m from Washington Heights. Born and raised. I don’t live there anymore but my mom still does so I go back often. You got some really great shots of the area!
Hi and thanks! Cheers!
Thanks for your kind words. Judging by your route map you have been near or through the Bitteroot vallley in SW Montana? (I have been reading about it in Jared Diamond’s very sobering book Collapse). It sounds like an amazing place; and yet it is so alarming to hear that it can have such a complex web of environmental problems ranging from toxic waste, soil erosion and salinization, groundwater and forestry management problems, and over-population?. Is there any part of this planet we haven’t screwed up by going there? Oh yes, its called the Core (admit it you thought I was going to say Antarctica, didn’t you? Unfortunately, even there we are having an adverse impact (tourists dropping litter etc.)
Hi Martin! thanks again for your wonderful support!
and thanks for your suggestion, I’ll look into it and it would be interesting if we could make it there. any other ideas are welcome 🙂
Are you still in Harlem?! I live in Harlem! I would love it if you would let me come see you in action 😀 I love your vision, and am notorious amongst my friends for talking to and meeting people of all kinds. I think we’d get along fabulously! What do you think?
Hi Noniska, thanks for sharing the trailer and your support! currently in Jackson Heights but should be around Harlem to get more pictures, always happy to meet people, feel free to send me an email! 🙂
The one with the taxi??? is right out of a movie production 🙂
If it’s really true that naivety is he mirror of wisdom… then I might be closer than I thought.
These pictures are really lovely!^^
Hi! I’m not sure… ‘can’, or ‘may’… Thanks! 🙂

Hi gilderic! Thanks! out of curiosity, do you have other designs along the lines of your current logo, or were there any older images that maybe inspired it?

wow, its not everyday you get a view of the heights especially in this kind of light, i wouldn’t know really since every time it was down there it was at night for the parties that be thrown down there, nice work though -,o
Thanks – wish I’d gotten to see a bit more of the night life in the area, but this will have to wait a bit! Stay tuned for part 2!
