In yesterday's photo, you can see some people taking photos of something on the ground on the left of the picture. This is the memorial to John Lennon, Strawberry Fields, a popular spot for people to visit in the park. Someone had decorated it with roses.

Continuing on with my snowy walk through Central Park, this is coming out near 72nd Street and Central Park West. The building on the right through the trees is the Dakota, a historic building and one of the loveliest structures in this area. One of these days I'd love to see what the inside looks like.

This is a shot of the staircases at the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. The terrace overlooks the lake and the Bethesda Fountain and is one of the favorite spots for people to visit in the park. This was taken after our snowstorm of last week when the snow was still fresh and white.

I guess there are Bloomingdales around the country now, but this is the flagship store at 59th Street and Lexington Avenue, covered in holiday lights. I read that Bloomingdales is about to open their first international store in Dubai next year. Wish I could afford to shop there more often!

I believe this is the building the houses Louis Vuitton the luxury goods store at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue in Midtown. Here is what I read about it on galinsky.com: "The transformation of the building's exterior from 1930 art deco into contemporary luxury was designed by Jun Aoki, the Japanese architect responsible for Louis Vuitton’s retail appearance in Japan. Aoki describes his glass façade as “a playfully sleek meditation on crystalline transparency and clouded translucency.”

We had almost a foot of snow on Saturday night and Central Park was looking beautiful on Sunday morning. This is a path near West 72nd Street. We didn't get nearly as much snow as some places on the east coast, but it was enough to slow the pace of the city down for a while.

This little chalet was selling delicious smelling hot cider and gingerbread people at the Columbus Circle Christmas market. They have lots of very nice wares for sale at the market this year. A good place for last minute shopping (and snacking!).

Took a stroll through the Greenflea Fleamarket at I.S. 44 on the upper west side this past weekend. It's a great place to browse, with all kinds of jewelry, furniture, vintage clothing, hats, food, etc. It's there every Sunday year-round. That's the El Dorado apartment building that you can see in the background (the two spired building.)

These are some of the apartment buildings along Columbus Avenue on the upper west side of Manhattan. It's a great street for window shopping and eating out, though you can't see any of the shops in this photo. I always enjoy strolling along Columbus Avenue.
