I have to post quickly, I’ve got to get ready for my Census training, and there was a mix-up and maybe I’m not even supposed to go up there but I’m going to show up just in case.

I went up to Inwood yesterday (way way way uptown Manhattan, also has the highest unsolved murder rate in Manhattan). I was looking for a haunted house and I need to go back to check another spot. While I was taking pictures of possibilities I was also taking pictures of other aspects of the area that I loved. And I love elevated train stations and platforms.

That unsolved murder rate by the way refers to old murders, which are still awful, but I wonder what the murder rate is today. What I saw was so beautiful and quiet and nice, for the most part.

  1. Don’t know anything about the murder rate, but do know a bit about photography. It’s a great shot!
