12-11-16 NYC First Snow

It started snowing late this afternoon while I was at a meeting in midtown.  The meeting was on the east side. This meant that I had to walk cross town through Rockefeller Center where there where only 8 gazillion people out to see the tree.

Very pretty evening though…

We ended up with about a foot of snow, with winds of 25 mph and temps dropping to 7 above zero, or spring as we called it when I lived in St. Paul. Just a few fun images of 8th Avenue and 32nd Street.

5-12-12 A Tourist In New York

As mentioned yesterday, my parents are visiting for Mother’s Day weekend and so I took them for a tourist day today. We hit the High Line and took a 75 minute boat ride down the Hudson to the Statue and back.  Things I only seem to do when I have out-of-town guests.

I took a lot of great shots (I think) especially faces on the boat tour but I am only putting up two today, one from each adventure.

It’s all happening at the zoo

Not a “good walk spoiled”

4-16-12 South Ferry/Battery Park

“One swallow does not make a summer,
neither does one fine day;
similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy.”

Aristotle

It was a beautiful summer day. True it is only April but I don’t know what else you could call a sunny day with temps in the mid/high 80’s. So as the day’s work ended I headed down to South Ferry and Battery Park.

Walk with me. I started at South Ferry (the transit station where you pick up the Staten Island Ferry) and walked Northwest up to the World Financial Center and back.

Can you tell the tourists from the locals?
