A familiar scene, Miss Liberty, Ellis Island, and a big barge to the left.

Look Ma, no cranes. Well, I actually can see three, but considering the last few images of this view, the sky is practically empty of them now.

Not much kayaking going on now, but there are a few still out there.

Happy to report seeing these geese yesterday after the mass execution of them last spring because their migrations crossed airplane spaces.

Back to the Houston Street pier waterfront, I just never get tired of it.

I had to switch servers and notice the text size has changed too, sorry!

A detail of the top of the Arch. Reminds me of the Shirtwaist Factory Fire, it was just around the corner, and, of course, old Henry James.

Inside Washington Square Arch looking north at One Fifth Avenue.

Inside the arch - sometimes I do see beauty in ordinary NYC moments.

There has been this huge renovation project going on at Washington Square. The fountain is finally done and the northern corners, giant gardens going on, but now the southern corners are torn up. Anyway, here is old George with the sunset shining onto the inside of the arch.

Went uptown on a job interview today among buildings like this. Was alarmed to see Saks 5th Avenue has their giant snowflakes up while Lord and Taylor has animated Christmas windows displayed already.

Ah well, not even 5pm and it looks like this already. Bit of a bummer.

And then there's the upwardly mobile Manhattan construction site.

Friday, November 13, 2009

Can't remember if I've shown you this before, I did post a few from the series. Love the corroded old paint and rust. Really beautiful, I think.

Never-ending supply of these sorts of images, this one is almost an abstract painting. If I pixelated it you might not recognize what it is.

More construction, can not get away from it in downtown New York.

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

On a construction site roll I see, here we are under a sidewalk scaffold.

Sometimes the construction sites in Manhattan are really beautiful.

Having just survived two long weeks on Wall Street, I saw a gazillion of these, because besides skyscrapers and swarms of office workers, all the streets have some sort of demolition or construction going on.

Friday, November 6, 2009

Oh dear, dark at 5PM! Survived both the Halloween parade two blocks from my house and then the Yankees victory parade right outside the building where my temp gig was (it ended today) in the same week. I gotta say, New Yorkers can be really ridiculous. And incredibly loud!!

What is New York if not a patchwork of buildings? These are part of the World Financial Center from a couple months ago, but this time seen from the river side of the complex. The Palm Court's to the right.

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

We're back. I've been doing a temp gig on Wall Street, which, if I had to do it for real, I'd have jumped in this cold deep river by now. This is a view of the piers I've posted before but from the southern direction.

Okay, one last shot of the oceanside beach of Provincetown, and then we will head back to gloomy old New York. I'm bored, you must be too.

Monday, November 2, 2009

Same beach as yesterday's post on the following morning before I left.

What Cape Cod in general and Provincetown in particular are known for is the light. Here is a good example of just how beautiful it can be.
