Ruby Tuesday

~SCROLL DOWN FOR MELLI'S DRAGON HUNT CHALLENGE~




Today is Ruby Tuesday and today were going to take a look at Hunters Point, Long Island City.

Remember you can post anything RED - a lot of RED or a little bit of RED.

Hunters Point is the neighborhood most people mean when they say Long Island City. One subway stop from Midtown, this working-class and industrial neighborhood is transforming into a premier residential enclave with the housing prices to match.

These red-brick townhouses are very special and marked as an historic landmark.

Funny napkins...

I'd really appreciate it if you would sign Mr. Linky AND make a comment. This makes it a little easier for me to visit everyone. If you do one and not the other then I have to check back and forth to see if I've visited you already. Thanks very much.

I see some lovely (red) townhouses and a fun (red) cartoon of nuns. Is Ruby Tuesday coming?

Eager beaver here...ready to link up... :-)

Mo said...

The napkin is funny, and I love how you color-coordinated it with the buildings!

ilanadavita said...

Ready too!

ilanadavita said...

I'm sorry Mary but I can't find Mr Linky.

DrillerAA said...

Great looking townhouses.
Mine is up and running as well.

me ann my camera said...

I love the humour in your festive napkins and the red buildings are beautiful with their sturdy, strong, endurable appearance..

Sanni said...

*LOL* I totally need these napkins!

The red-brick townhouses are beautiful. I wouldn't say "No" to on of those.

Please come and meet my ruby red "Straw-Bear-Ry" if you find a minute. :-)

Sanni said...

Ooops - I'm sorry... the first linky leads to my main blog. I guess it's a kind of "Manic Monday leftover", but Ruby Tuesday is posted on the photoblog.

I can't delete the link myself... could you please help me, Mary?

Thanks in advance and sorry for the mess.

jientje said...

I have some historic heritage as well, but it's in Belgium, not Long Island! And..... surprise ....
It's red as well!!! Isn't that funny?

Beautiful Mary, oh and I love the napkins too!

Babs (Beetle) said...

They are very unusual buildings! We have red brick houses but I've never seen them with black paintwork. It's very striking.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Looks like a nice neighborhood. I like the container gardens. I am going to Manhattan next weekend (god willing) to shoot some pictures.

Have a nice Tuesday. I have a couple of Daylilies and a red rose this week.

onangelwings said...

Those homes are a beautiful red.

Luis Photographer said...

Hello, I made my first Ruby Tuesday post. I hope you like it.

By the way the houses look very good!

ellen b said...

Those red brick town houses look very inviting! I like the black accents. Happy Ruby Tuesday to you and all.

Ralph said...

It is not just the red in these townhouses, it is the detailing. Not ornate, but distinctive especially the window trim and the woodwork on the peaks on the facade.

The style and elegance of a bygone era, for sure!

JunieRose2005 said...

I like the red buildings! Enjoyed the post very much!


I will have a red post up tomorrow!

Rules are to be broken, I hope I didn't be real bad today. What rule might I have broken? Sorry if it's too bad!

Raven said...

I love the napkins. The townhouses are wonderful too. So neat and tidy and proper.

WillThink4Wine said...

The buildings very pretty, all dressed in red and black, as are your nun napkins, Mary!

Window air conditioning? For premium priced real estate they're going to have to install Central Air Conditioning for my money! hahaha!

This is my first Ruby Tuesday also, enjoying blogging and connecting.

Melli said...

Mary, I must apologize! I accidentally added Dr. John to your linky list... I had put his name on my dragon hunt and forgot to change it before I clicked for YOUR linky! He DOES have a lovely PINK dragon on his blog today though -- does THAT count??? LOL!

I love your red brick buildings! Having watched what has become of some of the neighborhoods in DC, I know that these little beauties ARE prime!!!

MY Ruby is up too! It's a PLAYFUL one!

Amber Star said...

I'm up for today. I've already signed up on Linky...so I don't have to do that again. It would be sort of redundant. :) Don't want to get in trouble with the nuns, though.

Love the red townhouses.

Loved your photos Mary, especially the funny napkin.

Cheers, G
