These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Hey, I haven't looked at all the bridges (who has the time), but on the Throg's Neck and the Whitestone, they have very specific "No Video or Digital Camera pictures" signs. Are the others marked like that?

Re the bridge photography question: are you saying that there is an embargo on taking pictures "of" the bridges or "from" the bridges, and if "from", then, what do they not want you to capture?

It's "from" the bridges, and it's specifically the toll bridges (because they'd have a hard time enforcing it otherwise.)

It's almost entrely unenforceable *anyway*.

What theyre trying to do is prevent structural photos of the bridges themselves, but in reality, all theyre doing it making a fairly empty and meaningless gesture against the notion that people could be casing a location for a terrorist attack.

Fact remains that it's almost completely unenforceable, and really serves no purpose other than to annoy the daylights out of photographers and tourists.

It's completely fucking stupid, and it met with nothing but eyerolls (and basically ignoring it entirely) by the natives.
