The Arcus Center for Social Justice is the latest work from Studio Gang Architects and employs a dizzying use of cordwood masonry on its exteriors walls. Basically instead of setting stone or bricks in mortar they are using wood instead. The building is only halfway complete at this point but is scheduled for completion later this year.

New York is full of amazing views but the Top of the Rock may be the best vantage point of all. It is worth the wait and a fight for a spot on the edge to get a view like this one. What's the best vantage point in your city?

Really nice. Usually you see the exact same image over and over from here, but this one is classic yet original! Love it.

I'm happy to announce that on June 28 I'll be part of an amazing workshop in Chicago. The "Art of City Photography" is being assembled by Out of Chicago Photography and will feature more than 16 photographers discussing their vision, workflow, and techniques. There will also be photowalks on Friday and Saturday nights around the amazing city. I'll be discussing how to assemble stunning panoramic images but there is something here for everybody and every ability.

There's a regular price, and there will be an early bird price, but if you sign up TODAY the price is an absurdly low $99. Why would you wait?

See you in June!

Twice a year the sun sets behind Chicago's skyline. You can find this view along Indiana's shoreline. This particular shot was from 32 miles away and yet you can still make out planes crossing in front of the sun.

As Studio Gang Architects ramp up for new towers in San Francisco and Chicago they have a new building currently under construction in Kalamazoo, MI. They have employed a technique known as cordwood masonry for their exterior walls. It basically involves setting small logs in a bed of mortar just as you would do with a field stone or other masonry. I think the result will be fantastic.

New York City at Dusk

The Top of the Rock offers up amazing views and is worth the wait and the crowds.  What's the best view from your city?

Brooklyn, 2013

I love when distinct parts of the city line up. I wonder if the engineers who built the Manhattan Bridge realized what they were doing.

CB2 features modern furnuture. It's one step up from IKEA in terms or design and quality. I hate shopping for furniture but love coming into CB2. They consistently have interesting selections on the floor and the staff has always been helpful.

It's a gas station. I have no complaints about the gas station or the minimart but the car wash is pretty barebones and had a broken screen on my last visit which prevented me from upgrading beyond the basic wash.

The food was only okay. I had the pasty which was fine but overcooked and the gravy tasted like it was simply Heinz out of a can. The chili was edible but not good. I wasn't expecting fine dining but even with low expectations this place was a little bit of a disappointment. If I was in the area I'd probably stop in again but try one of their sandwiches.

Classic Chicago street food served up in a kitshcy restaurant. I'm always impressed at the organization and their ability to move a ton of people through the lines. The food is good. While it isn't the very best hot dog or Italian sausage you'll find it tastes pretty darn good. The last time I was in here the place was mobbed and my order was messed up. As I approached the counter a manager intercepted me, listened to the issue, and immediately went down the line and personally made the two missing items. I applaud them for being proactive and solving the problem within 30 seconds.

I'd give this place 4 stars for their sweets and ice cream and 2 stars for their prices. It's good but the value isn't quite there.
