Now that I think of it, my favorite smoking spots of NYC are all forgotten places, that is, places that are never really thought of when you’re thinking of a nice place to walk or promoted in magazines or even mentioned all that much when articles talk about NY. The calming parts of the hood I guess. And it’s not even by choice, these are just the places the NYPD has driven us to because of the idiotic marijuana policies that turn innocents to criminals by law. But to anyone considering a trip to the upper west side of Manhattan, it’s not all gloom up here. This is a nice little assortment of images I’ve taken of said places.
The Milky Way shines beyond the light dome of a nearby city. Although the image made over 60 km away from the city the light pollution sheds a yellow cast all over the view and vanished the starry sky near eastern horizon. Alborz Mountains, Iran.
