Manhattan Island

Welcome to What Pegman Saw, a 150-word weekly writing prompt inspired by the photos found on Google Maps. Yep, that’s really a picture of Manhattan.  Inwood Park, at the very tip of the island, is one of the few places on the island that looks as it did three hundred years ago.
This week you can roam any or all of the five boroughs. There are a thousand stories in the naked city, so bring one back. You can also write a poem, an essay or whatever you feel like writing. Share it with the others and comment on their stories. We ask you keep it to 150 words, but aside from that there are no rules. Have fun, and good hunting.

  10. Well … for some reason this one felt like home! (Yeah, me an NYC gal! :)) … There could’a been so many places and spaces and stories this could take me too … and still the prompt took me to a lesser known spot on a lesser known island in the middle of the East River, between Manhattan and Queens. And to the story of so many … through the story of one.
