>>  Welcome to Littleviews, a website in transition. Our original mission was to help people experience, enjoy, and remember more interesting sights with less effort and expense.

Since Littleviews on New York City's founding, however, we branched into a new subject area, which also focuses on sightseeing, but adds kick scooting as a means of travel. In early 2012, this website was hit by malicious spam. That caused us to close several popular Littleviews sections. Once closed, we have now posted all our touring information on www.LetsKickScoot.com.

In November 2012, my sister-in-law, Susan Smith-Little, began suffering from cancer, several surgeries, and surgical complications. Since that time, I've realized how important health is for people 55 years of age and older who still want to enjoy travel activities.

Fortunately, Susan is on the mend, but as her trials have come to light, we decided to change the content on Littleviews to cover subjects related to retirement, budget traveling, and health tips that discuss doing the best you can with what you got, no matter where on travel's road you might be. New articles will begin appearing in mid-February 2013.

Articles on www.LetsKickScoot.com will continue featuring travel information (but with a kick scooter twist). Hopefully, people of all ages will find them useful. During 2013, we will be encouraging our readers to join our kick scooting adventures in and around New York and/or wherever in the US kick scooter groups exist. (More information to come.)

Please sign up for our more-or-less monthly newsletter to find out when new articles are posted.

Iconic Views: Midtown New York City as seen from New Jersey

View of Midtown NYC from Weehawken, NJ. 9/2012

You'll recognize the scene above if you frequent movies.

Shots from Weehawken's Boulevard East are featured in many films, as are images of New York Waterways, a ferry service originating in Weehawken. Weehawken, however, is not often listed on tourist brochures, so take a tip from us: Go to the 42nd Street, NY NJ Port Authority, board a bus to Boulevard East in Weehawken, get off at the corner of Highwood Terrace and Boulevard East (the first major stop), walk East toward the Hudson River, and be prepared to be amazed.
