Default A-Z of New York

Hi,

I've been toying with the idea of designing an alphabet needlepoint
wall-hanging but wanted a theme besides the usual A is for apple.... I
thought about doing an International version with each letter in a foreign
language before deciding it was way too complicated. Then I thought about
doing one based on the United States as seen through a British perspective.
I've since narrowed it down a bit further and want to concentrate on New
York. This is where I need some help - any suggestions? I've thought of some
obvious ones already - B is for Big Apple, Y is for Yellow Cab etc.... Each
letter will be approx 60 stitches x 60 stitches in size so I can't be too
ambitious with the design. I'm also keen to do an A-Z of London which
incorporates a bit if cockney rhyming slang!

How about F is for Fashion, T is for Theater, D is for Dining, L is for
Liberty (Statue of), S is for Subway, M is for Metropolitan Museum, V is for
Verazzano Bridge, W is for Wall Street

Or F is for Ferry (Statton Island), C is for Coney Island, Y is for
Yonkers, B is for Brooklyn ( or B is for Battery Park or Broadway), U is
for UN, R is for Rockefeller Centre (Or Rockettes), H is for Harlem, E
is for Empire State Building........

This is fun.

Thanks for liking some of my idea. The Verazzano Narrows Bridge was, when
it opened in 1964, the longest suspension bridge in the world. I think
there's one now in England that's a little longer. The bridge goes from
Brooklyn to Staten Island and you can see the Statue of Liberty when you're
crossing it. It's stunning to see at night.

Yes, I'm a New Yorker by birth. I live in Florida now but I'll always be a
New Yorker at heart.

Well as a Brooklynite I think B should be the Brooklyn Bridge (double
B! and it would make a lovely design!)
C could also be Central Park
S for Staten Island
G for Grant's Tomb
C for the Cloisters
I for Inwood (neighborhood in northern Manhattan)
W for World Trade Center
or T for Twin Towers
Y for Yankees!!!!

Alison


The list so far:
B is for Big Apple,
B is for Brooklyn ( or B is for Battery Park or Broadway)
C is for Coney Island
D is for Dining
E is for Empire State Building
F is for Fashion
F is for Ferry (Statton Island),
H is for Harlem
L is for Liberty (Statue of)
M is for Metropolitan Museum,
R is for Rockefeller Centre (Or Rockettes)
S is for SubwayT is for Theater
U is for UN,
V is for Verazzano Bridge
W is for Wall Street
Y is for Yonkers
Y is for Yellow Cab etc

Yonkers is not a part of New York City, but rather it's in Westchester
County. If you want your alphabet to be the State of New York it's okay to
include it..

What about the rest of the state? You are focusing on just the city - which
is fine if that's your goal, but there are other parts of the state too!
Niagra Falls, Catskill Mountains, tons of mansions and history that can be
called upon for your needs!

Sorry Cheryl but I haven't a clue about Pocono. The only Pocono I know is
in Pennsylvania.

If she wants New York State she could use Poughkeepsie, which was the home
of IBM and Vassar College and if she wants the City, she could use p is for
Pelham, that's in the Bronx or Park Avenue, one of the ritziest places in
the U.S..
