It’s been a while since I updated the shots I’ve taken day tripping around the city. The following are just a sample of some images I shot walking the city this past Labor Day.
Columbus Circle AreaThe WI wandered into Times Square which was busy but not overly.It’s Times Square!From Times Square to Central ParkCame across this mini Amusement Park reminding me of some of the few fun times as a kid I got to enjoy going on rides at an Amusement Park.This is just an awesome and classic Central Park scene.Approaching the never-ending scene of park goers wanting to snap a shot with Alice In Wonderland’s statues. I think you’d need a permit to keep people out of the way long enough to shoot this scene without someone in it lol.
This would be as good as it got.As I passed by here I came across a man blowing giant bubbles for the kids…Hope you enjoyed my little sample.
Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Toronto Photo Walk Pt.IIIPicking up where we last left off. We continued to walk the streets of downtown Toronto.The street car looks like a hybrid between a bus and a train car.TD bank is also seemingly the bank of Canada because I saw locations just about everywhere we went.
As we approached Queens Park I noticed this massive glass building looming in the distance. It looked pretty awesome with it’s curved shape.
Toronto General Hospital in the background.
Heading to class I guess.This statue is for a famous doctor of the university. His name escapes me but obviously he was important enough to have a statue erected for him by the medical school.
Back to back street cars were approaching, reminding me of the good ole days of the MTA, where late off schedule, bus drivers put on their (Not in service/Next Bus Please) signs and sped off one after the other leaving many of us strap-hangers stranded.We began making our way back towards the way we came to Queens Park and the downtown financial district.
Nice play pen for the kids. From here, we encountered the flags of the G8 in Toronto. They are comprised of the 8 leading industrialized economies (Canada, United States, UK, Russia, Japan, France, Italy, Germany, & European Union).
I didn’t even know there was a Mount Sinai Hospital in Canada.We wanted to go up to the top of the space needle building here but alas we thought better of it and would plan that for another trip when the weather was more amenable.I have to say I really like the architecture of the buildings in Toronto. This city is pretty cool I must say.And then my attention was drawn towards something in the picture. I’m like what in the world???No he’s not like… “I’m about to go to sleep. I got my smoke on, now it’s nap time.” This isn’t uncommon in the states though. Especially NYC.
There’s something on its head.Right outside of a subway entrance I found something that reminds me of back home. Trash just dumped and left on the street. Toronto’s such a beautiful city you’d almost have to consider this a “beauty mark”.We continued making our way downtown as the temp got warmer.
Stay tuned for Toronto Photowalk Pt.4

Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Getting Away To Governor’s Island Pt. III
So many directions to choose from which way to go?
We loved the architecture of this old chapel.
It became a little more cloudy as I stopped to take this shot up close.
As we continued our journey we came across the Children’s Museum of the Arts. Unfortunately the building was closed. So we could only guess at what the inside of this house looked like.The above is not the C.M.A but another building along the path we took after passing the C.M.A.
This place too was closed and merely a standing relic of days past.
Now that’s a tree.
Pick a side… A or B?
The Center for Holographic Arts. Would have been cool to see what they did there.
Cannons out front. Defense system ready.
Can you imagine what it sounded like live when those bad boys went off?
The opening is smaller than I anticipated but a cannon’s a cannon right? 😉
So this building with the cannons out front was the Commanding Officer’s Quarters. Designed in 1843 by prominent New York architect Martin E. Thompson. An army commander lived on premises until 1966.
By now we began to wind up our tour of the island as it was getting close to time for the last ferry to depart back towards the city.
Looks like a greenhouse to me.
Next time here we’re going to pedal around the island too. Our next stop on our tour before making our way back to the ferry was Fort Jay.
Didn’t feel much like descending to walk on the lawn at this point so we just walked around the perimeter at the top of the stairs.
One could only guess how much each one of those weigh. From here we made our way back to the ferry ending our tour of the island.
Once back on the ferry I took a few more shots of the city from across the water and as we approached the dock.
And that was the end of our day trip. Till next time this has been THEJNSREPORT’S: Getting Away To Governor’s Island. All images are the property of THEJNSREPORT.com (c) 2014.
Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S:Getting Away To Governor’s Island Continued… Picking up from where we left off and continuing to make our way through Governor’s Island we continued documenting our trip through the island.
Apparently Governor’s Island is an oasis for many different bird species.
Read the sign and learned something new.
Which way do we go?
A Road divided
I love this concept. I mean if it were customizable that would be sick!
The new charging stations I see popping up are cool. Solar power.
