a Stockade rooftop high

photo of portion of the 1st Reformed Church steeple in the Schenectady NY Stockade District taken from the roof of The Colonial Arms apartment building - 14May2013 It took me 25 years of Stockade living to get to the roof of the Colonial Arms apartment building, at 9 North Church Street. Thanks to good neighbor and building superintendent Pete Pasternak, I finally got to enjoy the view earlier this week from the Stockade’s tallest (non-church) building, on a day with a gorgeous blue sky and lovely clouds, in tne company of two of my most charming and adventurous friends, Sylvie Briber and Susannah Hand.

The views were even more breathtaking than my camera could capture, but I still needed to share the results.  The new perspective on some of my favorite photographic subjects was enlightening and enjoyable. I will surely get back up there quite a few times in the next quarter century, if the Colonial Arms management invites me back.
