A Bridge Too Far?

Here are a few more pictures from my fellow Longwood High School Alumnus, James Dentel.

James is an outstanding events and fashion photographer.  Check out his Facebook page here: Photos by JD.  (Many of them are easy on they eyes, guys.)   The photos are below are just shots taken on his way to work, but James tells me that it’s funny how people really respond to them.  (I don’t know why I dig them so much, but I do.)

Any New Yorker will know that most of these are of the George Washington Bridge (or “the GW.”)  The exception is the photo second to last — that’s the Verrazanno-Narrows Bridge, one that I myself have traversed too many times to count.

If you’re looking for an outstanding fashion, glamour or events photographer in the New York area, then peruse the work of my Longwood High School Alumnus, James Dentel.  James has a terrific eye, and his work is absolutely beautiful.

You can see from that from the shots below.  They were taken at the recent “Three Nights of Horror” Halloween weekend event at the Lava Nightclub and Exit 33 in Verona, NY.

You can find more samples of James’ work at the “Photos by JD” Facebook page, and at his website:



Nice work, James.

“Within, the wealthy lament/ The traffic at the Whitestone Bridge.”

Here’s a particularly nice shot of the Whitestone Bridge, connecting Queens, New York, with the Bronx (and Connecticut beyond).  My Longwood High School Alumnus James Dentel shot this recently, and he was kind enough to let me use it.

This is the bridge referenced in my poem, “Amanda,” which was featured by Dagda Publishing and by Dead Snakes.

I used live not far from here.  Yes, New York can be a rough place, but Whitestone, Queens and adjacent Beechurst were two of the greatest neighborhoods I ever inhabited.
