New Edition and Babyface at Barclays Center

In July of 2016 I went as a fan to see one of my favorite groups New Edition. With my ultra mega zoom point and shoot camera in tow, I went to Barclays Center in Brooklyn to sing and dance with my best friend. Babyface was a nice addition to the bill as he sang hits that were from his albums and songs that were hits for so many other artists (Bobby Brown, Usher, Whitney Houston, TLC and more). It was like we had two concerts for the price of one. 

We were there for New Edition and they did not disappoint. Matching suits, choreographed dancing and they still sounded great for a fun filled evening at Barclays Center. Only five members were performing but we got some Bobby Brown songs earlier from Babyface when he was singing the hits he wrote for other artists. Ricky Bell, Mike Bivens, Ronnie Devoe (BBD), Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill each sang hits from their solo careers as well. Yes, Babyface and Ralph T decided to open their shirts but only Babyface was running around the pit, giving the fans high fives as he ran by.

This is probably the last time I will be using my ultra mega point and shoot camera. It’s served me well the past 8 years but it was struggling to capture pictures during this concert (the pics are a little fuzzy). It’s time for retirement from concerts and sporting events. 


New Year’s at Coney Island 2017

It’s incredible how many people come out to celebrate the Polar Bear Plunge at Coney Island every New Year. This is my 3rd year going to Coney Island for the Polar Bear plunge and this year the weather was nice and sunny. It’s always fun watching all ages of people go into the water to start off the New Year. 

New Yorkers and tourists all gather around to enjoy the New Year together. 

Happy New Year from Coney Island! 


Battery Park - Fleet Week in NYC

It’s Memorial Day Weekend in NYC and there are a lot of activities to partake in. I decided to go to Battery Park to enjoy some activities, like watching people do pull-ups as Marines cheered them on, standing on Military tires to look inside these massive trucks and enjoy some sun.

One really couldn’t ask for a better weather day. My dad always took us to South Ferry as kids, and I couldn’t resist getting on the Staten Island Ferry. If you’re ever looking for something to do that doesn’t cost much money, hop on down to South Ferry and ride the Staten Island Ferry for free or lounge around Battery Park.
