Purses





The focus of this is weird, then I realized I had actually focused on the face of the briefcase guy.

Knit and be happy



It took forever for cell phone guy to stop pacing in front of the stores.

Then waited for pizza guy.

Blue and Orange cascade



I don't imagine they're going to paint the terraces blue and orange, but it does catch the eye from a distance.
Leonard Street (at, or close to, Broadway)

Royal Enfield Bullet 200


I checked. Their only U.S. distributor is in Minnesota. This one looks pretty new though.

Say AHHH!!!



Maybe it's just the holiday season, but this guy who wandered into the shot looks like he's saying, "AHHHH!!!!" on the inside.

Split

We hardly knew ye

Seasonal SoHo stores close up.

Shadow escape



I find myself taking a lot of photos of fire-escaped facades with long winter shadows lately. I'm not sure what's attracting me or if I'm showing it correctly with the camera, but I think it's the way the fire escape is re-drawn in shadow in the space between the fire escapes.

Christmas ends


Downing Street - or there'bouts.

Going home


In a block's distance we ended up behind two more kids with balloons. Must have been a holiday carnival or something going on downtown.

Emergency route

Framed


32nd street.

Alone


It's always a little creepy being the only person on the Subway platform.

Just another tree on the IRT


Actually, it's the 6 at Union Square.

PATH blasted

Top: Commuters pour into the WTC PATH station from Hoboken Tuesday morning.
Bottom: Commuters crowd the platform waiting for the Hoboken train to take them home Tuesday evening.


For what it's worth, the counter-commute was pretty smooth.

Reminder to Lower Manhattan commuters:

When I was in the WTC PATH station this morning I noticed they're running regular trains from there to 33rd street, without having to go over to NJ in between. I assume it also makes a few stops along the way at 9th St. or 14th or 23rd. I don't know if it's already being reported on NY1 or anything, but if you have to get between Lower Manhattan and Midtown, that might be your best bet. Plus, it's 50 cents cheaper than the subway would have been. :)

Rainbow Room (Suite B)

64th floor.
Some of these came better than others, but I got sick of trying to sort through them. I could probably get a little more out of the sky, and some of the window reflection is frustrating. Nice view though.

P.S. The Verrazzano is the most under rated skyline bridge in the city.










Faulty towers


How is it that every single shade on the light fixture in the lobby of the Sheraton Towers in Midtown is crooked? Did I miss an earthquake?
