New York City's Office of Emergency Management (OEM) looks like N.A.S.A.!
Fall is my favorite season in Paris. Photographers love to shoot Paris at night or in the springtime so it's pretty rare to find pictures of Paris in the fall but Untapped gives you a glimpse of fall in Paris.
Well, one of the best views in Paris at least--there are so many! The outdoor seating area is under the north wing of the museum, overlooking the Louvre Courtyard and the Pyramid, with a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower.

Untapped checked out Takara, the oldest Japanese restaurant in Paris as a followup to the popular post on Rue Saint-Anne, the current nucleus of Little Tokyo.

Along the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens, not too far from the Jamaica train station, stands a mosque clearly converted from an old factory. A painted turquoise dome rises above the drab factory exterior as well as a simple minaret. The building has been the New York headquarters of the Imam Al-Khoei Benevolent Foundation.
