Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 08

Very late in the month, just in time for the eighth monthly photo challenge, hosted by Cardinal Guzman. We went to the Mostly Mozart Festival (3 x), ate Chef’s pasta in a restaurant close by, enjoyed Tudor City in the dogs days of August. Went to Williamsburg and Greenpoint, across the river. August has some car-free Saturday mornings. Fao-Schwarz, the famous toy shop, closed its shop on 59th and Fifth. Hammarskjöld Plaza has a farmer’s market on Wednesdays. And some more buildings that won’t be there, next year. I also took a panorama photo of Central Station, from the Apple store. All photos were taken in the month of August. It was still nice enough to eat outside.The building across the street is almost done and we had yet another beautiful evening.

Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 03

March gave us the opportunity to go out a little more, despite the occasional snow storm, such as the one on 20 March. The following day, it was cold and beautiful. We had the opportunity to look over Central Park from the south and we saw this beautiful checker taxi. Today I visited a friend in a health care center on the lower east side and travelled back up again by bus. On the other photos you find the UN Secretariat, one of the Trump Towers, and some photos of Central Station, other than the main hall. Scaffolding is still around a building in our neighbourhood, but that should disappear within the next few months. Stay tuned ….
