A good occasion to show off some homework. I recently upholstered eight chairs, with the assistance of some cloth, glue and an electric “tacker”.

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.
This month, it started to become quiet in our neighborhood. During the weekends, the city empties, which is nice. At the very end of last month, we had the first “Manhattanhenge” of this year, when the sun sets precisely in line with the streets from West to East. Also, the building which has been constructed over the last couple of years is almost finished. The scaffolding is slowly disappearing. So, one new kid on the block and one old one, which may be disappearing in the forthcoming year(s). More on this challenge can be found here.
This month, I have included a walk on the UES (Upper East Side), and one from 16th to 46th Street on the East side, looking for the ESB (Empire State Building). Hello Kitty will be going to Amsterdam, some time in September of this year. And some photos were taken in Tudor City, which is Midtown East. Yesterday, I attended the opening of “The Living Pyramid” by Agnes Denes in Long Island City. More in this challenge can be found here:
Spring is in the air. Finally! So, all attention is on the cherry blossom, magnolia, and nice weather, even though it was extremely cold today! And more on this challenge can be found here. Till next month.
This is my first participation in Leanne Cole‘s Monochrome Madness. We walked on the high line on the West side of Manhattan which has just been extended further North, so that you pass these tracks.
