Looking south down Park Avenue, you see the MetLife building behind Grand Central Station. No, it has nothing to do with the New York Mets baseball team, silly. MetLife happens to be a major insurance company. "Get Met, it pays" or something like that. Anyway, I wish that building didn't exist because Park Avenue canyon photos could look so much better.

What a beautiful day! Here we see a close up of Cleopatra's Needle in Central Park. Though well over 3,000 years old, the obelisk looks to be in better shape than some newer places downtown. And, come on, you gotta love those crabs, yo!

A little walk through a Jersey City (New Jersey) neighborhood yields this sidewalk scene--red fire hydrant with a silver top, no extra charge. This part of Jersey City, I keep telling you, is right across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. Yes, one stop on the PATH train. Go for it!
Oh, and, the wall with the tree shadow may become a window soon, according to the shopkeeper there. So, enjoy things while you can.

Feeling dog tired in this dog-eat-dog world? Well, stop with that hang dog expression and bone up! Of course, we can't all be a New York-ie, carried around like a princess. Bitch!
Don't hound me. I've gone to the dogs. Yes, I'm going there--who let the dogs out?

An early evening look east along 42nd Street from 8th Avenue...you get a peek at the Chrysler Building way down the canyon (left center)...

Okay, it's no Easter Bonnet but, well, how about, er, Easter Bottoms? ;] Put on your red shoes and dance the blues...

The Empire State Building sported spring colors last night for obvious reasons. Spring has sprung!
Have a great Easter weekend!

A late afternoon look at the Empire State Building and the raining sky...

Cheers to color in our lives, even the color brought to us by criminal means. ;]
Before you go, check out last Sunday's post which I forgot to publish until today. Blessed are we bloggers for the freedom to post whenever we want.

One of the greatest Americans of All Time, ladies and gentlemen, Benjamin Franklin! You smarties out there will enjoy the little extra provided by the sculptor--the keys all over the surface of the big bust.
The impact he made on his world and ours would take too much space here. He invented the lightning rod, the glass harmonica, the Franklin stove, bifocal glasses, and the flexible urinary catheter. "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise", indeed.

I went to Philadelphia this weekend and bring you a souvenir. This statue depicts Commodore John Barry, who on today's date, March 10th, defeated the British in the last naval battle of the American Revolutionary War in 1783.
You can see Independence Hall in the background.

Liberty blesses all who enjoy it. Here we see the famous Liberty Bell, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the background, through the window, we see the one and only Independence Hall.

Before the rain came, I was on Avenue A. Here we see a deli grocery and an entrance to (most likely) apartments. Care for a gumball?

Where you smile and hide
That's where you'll find me if I get to go
The space between
The bullets in our fire fight
Is where I'll be hiding waiting for you
[all apologies to Dave Matthews Band, SPACE BETWEEN]

I don't know if it's "a better mouse trap" but it sure looked good to me. Located in a lower Manhattan cemetery...

A bird glides above the Hudson River. Sunset falls on the south tip of Manhattan and clouds play over a distant Brooklyn. Who says The City has no Nature?
