Brooklyn Heights Nocturne

A view from my window, about 11:00 p.m. December 29, 2012. The Promenade Christmas Tree is lit, and beyond, the lights of New Jersey beckon.

    Nice pic. Is beckon the right verb for what Jersey does? :)

  • Liesje

    Well, at least the lights from New Jersey “beckon” – perhaps all is an illusion?

    I’ve long thought “Hoboken beckons” would be a great chamber of commerce slogan.

    Hoboken floods.

  • Gerry

    @ Wiley E, and floods include DUMBO, Red Hook, One Brooklyn Bridge Park, etc.

    We live on high ground only flood we could get would be a water main break.

    Awesome pic Claude. How about “Hoboken beckons Hobos and BrHooklynites” from afar.

  • Mike R

    Maybe it should be Hobecken bokens.

    That’s damn funny Mike.
