Interesting Article in Sunday's Times - Photo Slide show on Steinway Pianos

NEW YORK TIMES - Nothing enters the Steinway factory in Astoria, Queens, looking anything like a piano. The wood, for example, is just lumber, before it is shaped into the rim of the instrument. Assembling the pianos takes months, with a lot of waiting between steps so that the wood can be conditioned properly. Near the end of the process, each piano is wheeled into the ‘‘pounding room,’’ where 88 rubber fingers play the instrument for hours, breaking in the piano and exposing any…

Embracing my O’Merin side on Paddy’s Day

Tradition mandates that I pick up a loaf of Irish Soda Bread on the 16th at Parisi Bakery and this year was no exception. 

Most years I’m in the city for my name day but this year due to it falling on a Saturday I found myself hanging out in the hood - so I decided to grab a few shots as I made my way around some of my favorite spots on the 17th.  I took it very slow and easy in preparation for my evening activities as I had tickets to go see Black47 at B.B. Kings.  Suffice…

Roman's Silver Payot

As a general rule my images are candid captures when I shoot on the streets or subway but on occasion I do ask for permission - this recent image uploaded to my Subway Moments & Astoria Flickr sets is one such non-candid encounter on the N line that turned into a very interesting conversation with a fellow Astorian ;-)

If anyone knows Roman - tell him that I look forward to running into him again so I can get print of this shot out to him or better yet point him…

Pat, I'm so sorry I didn't see your message FROM JUNE 4(!) until just now. I haven't actually logged in to my WLA account in ages. (Been busy with a new baby since summer.) Anyway, just wanted to comment to apologize for what must have looked like a brush-off. I'm sure it's too late now for your road trip question. Gah. In the future, you can always find me via email [myfirstandlastname] [at] gmail [dot com]

Thanks, Pat! I wish my editor there would have had more room for Steinway spots, but they got cut.

I've been to Via Trenta. Good stuff. I'm still more a fan of Basil Brick Oven and Forno Italia, though, which are closer to where I live. But it's a great addition to the neighborhood.
