Summer in the City & Beyond

When not leading photo safaris, I am doing research on the waterways whether Manhattanbound or to the Long Island Sound on the trail of the Great Gatsby -- Sands Point, LI -- or to a specific geographic coordinate, say, where the Long Island Sound meets the Connecticut River -- in short, scouting places of great traditional beauty. As to water -- that precious and mysterious resourse -- Manhattan remains surrounded on all sides by both the East River and Hudson River, destinations which offer respite from the dog days of July-August.
