This says summer to me.
The (West) 79th Street Boat Basin's Marina.
There was a time when a whole community of houseboat dwellers
anchored there in the Hudson River.
Now its mostly small pleasure boats like these.

Yay! You're very first Daryl, that has to be good karma or something.

Great shot of the boat basin - boats and marinas always say summertime to me too (and always get my escapist "I'm going to run away and boat around the world" fantasies kicking into overdrive).

Thanks for helping me kick off Summer Stock Sunday in such a great way!

It feels like summer just looking at this, Daryl. This is a fun theme. Might have to give it a go.

Jacob said...

This is beautiful, Daryl. The lighting is just perfect! Did you catch the rays of the setting sun?

What happened to all the houseboats?

Oh, I know. They sailed off to Florida.

judi said...

Nifty shot! Screams summer ;D

Julia Smith said...

Beautiful. I'm a coastal dweller, so moored boats are a welcome sight no matter what the season.

Ellie said...

It's a summer... in the city...
Remember the song?

Phyllis Sommer said...

what a nice summer image:-)

Vicki said...

I love going boating. Very calming to be on the water!

Cloudia said...

Yep, they get the live-aboard wierdos out to make room for "citizens" to feel safe......But I passed inspection and will remain in this harbor for another two years (G*D willing).....oh, Aloha Daryl ;-)

Merisi said...

Yes, truly the image of a perfect summer day! :-)

Looking at this picture, I can't wait to go out to the marina at the Old Danube and go sailing again.

Wishing you a pleasant Sunday! :-)

Great shot! Fine suggestion of coming holidays.

Great picture. I love seeing the boats on the water in the city. It's so cool and refreshing.

What a great shot. I love being near the water (though in my part of Texas it's just lakes). Oh, you make me pine to get out to the shore!

Dianne said...

that's a great shot
I love the Boat Basin, haven't been there in awhile - used to walk over after work and watch the boating types ;)

B Squared said...

Sure looks like Summer In The City to me.

Mental P Mama said...

Love it!

Jill of All Trades said...

Oh I love that picture.

maryt/theteach said...

Sometimes we forget we are an island (Manhattan and Long Island) and that marinas and boat basins are everywhere! Love this Daryl! :)

Joyce said...

Don't you wonder where all those boats are going this summer? Long Island, Rye, Fire Island, Hamptons, Jersey shore?

That is so summer!! (I always wanted to live on a houseboat) I crave large bodies of water living in the desert.

Akelamalu said...

That's definitely a summer shot Daryl. :)

Middle Ditch said...

It must be summer. Nice shots

San said...

That IS a vision of summer, Daryl. I know I would enjoy walking along there.

Snooty Primadona said...

Yes, summer is definitely time for boating. Especially sailing. What am I saying? It doesn't matter as long as you're on the water with the wind in your hair....

Sandy said...

I love the photo of the boats. Just beautiful! Looking forward to more of your wonderful pictures!!

Jessica The Rock Chick said...

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a leisurely Sunday on one of those boats! I love being on the water-it is so calming! Really beautiful shot!

Mojo said...

Boats should be a part of the industry standard definition of summer. I'd truly love to be able to live on one... Fact is, if I bought one of these "small" boats, I'd probably have to live on it... 'cause there's no way I could make a mortgage payment on top of the boat payment.

Beautiful shot!

TSannie said...

I know when you took THAT photo!

Janet said...

ahhhh, looks like heaven to me!

TexasRed said...

Looks like a fabulous summer day!

imom said...

I love hanging out at our marina, it definitely reminds me of summer! The looks, the smells, the sounds all of it is summer! Beautiful photo!

I might participate in this, sounds like fun!

Bim said...

I like the photo - but would love to see the houseboats still there...
