World Financial Center 2

World Financial Center, Hudson River, Manhattan

As a follow-up to yesterday's post, I trekked again to the banks of the mighty Hudson River. Thankfully, a bit of yesterday's snow remained atop the buildings around the World Financial Center.

Snow Scrapers

snow on Manhattan buildings seen from across the Hudson River

CAUTION: Snow Scrapers! Here, you see "snow-capped" Manhattan buildings near the World Trade Center site, as seen from the other side of the Hudson River in Jersey City.

As I like to say, you get a great look at Manhattan, when you cross one of the rivers. "You gotta leave the city to see the city."

Cheers to easy access to great views!

Times Square Panes

window panels, Times Square, NYC

I like when a composition I really, really enjoy has an exclamation point in it, whether literally or with shapes (as seen above on the lower left). Whether or not that blesses me or the photo remains to be seen. However, I do feel blessed for having seen the scene in the first place.

The sky above Times Square but from a "side street", so you don't really recognize the place.

Dog Show

Hey, dread! My favorite dog backstage did not come from Jamaica but he loved the man in the kilt.

Look Up

Kenmare Street buildings, NYC, Manhattan

You won't always catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building but looking up usually gets rewarded here. Don't block the sidewalk, though, please.

A Rose

girl in graffiti, Manhattan

lily has a rose
(i have none)
"don't cry dear violet
you may take mine"

"o how how how
could i ever wear it now
when the boy who gave it to
you is the tallest of the boys"

"he'll give me another
if i let him kiss me twice
but my lover has a brother
who is good and kind to all"

"o no no no
let the roses come and go
for kindness and goodness do
not make a fellow tall"

lily has a rose
no rose i've
and losing's less than winning(but
love is more than love)

[all apologies to e.e. cummings - lily has a rose ]

Calm Before

a woman and lower Manhattan reflect on the bank of the Hudson River

Calm before the storm...I took this one in the afternoon on Sunday, before the Super Bowl--Super Bowl 42, or "Super Bowl XLII" for you worshippers of all things Roman. Here we see lower Manhattan reflected on the Hudson River. A beautiful day, to be sure...

Today, in honor of their win in The Big Game, the NFL champion Giants will enjoy a parade up the Canyon of Heroes (Broadway), also in lower Manhattan. If you're lucky enough, I'll have something to show you later. Stay tuned...

Shadows and Tall Trees

silhouette of tree and fence

Who is it now
Who calls me inside
Are the leaves on the trees
Just living disguise
I walk sweet rain tragicomedy
I'll walk home again
to the street melody

But I know, oh no

Shadows and tall trees

[all aplogies to U2, SHADOWS AND TALL TREES]
