The BUTCH the BRAVE and the BRAWNY

THESE ARE THE MEN WHO TEAR NEW YORK APART……THEN PUT IT BACK TOGETHER.  RIP OUT THE WALLS……TEAR UP THE STREETS……..TEAR DOWN THE WALLS……HOIST THE CRANES……..LAY THE PIPES…….BUILD THE SCAFFOLDS THEN SCAMPER ABOUT ON THEM.

Wandering on Wall Street

Wandering around the caverns of Wall Street…….second time in a week.  The place is fascinating.  Sights…..sounds……..smells.  Tourists in the mix.  Construction everywhere.  The very narrow streets somehow add to the fun.  Two million people there on a daily basis ……. mind boggling.  But my little camera loves it all.

Construction is happening on almost every street.  Do we really need more skyscrapers?  Yes!

When I see construction workers I always stop and talk to them…and take teir photos.  They are pleased to pose.  Anxious to talk about their project.

My father was a HARD HAT………..and proud to be a carpenter.

This is a rare picture of George Cathey……….working on the Mackinaw Bridge in upper michigan in the 1950’s.
