The holiday bustle is beginning in the city. The streets always seem much busier with more visitors and shoppers this time of year. Hopefully I'll get some shots of holiday lights to show you soon.

Botero Statues

These are some Botero statues (at least I'm assuming that is the artist) that I saw in front of an office building in midtown recently. The quality of the photo is not so good but I loved the statues. Have a good week.

A classic New York scene with the Empire State Building to end the week. Enjoy your weekend and see you next week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! This chocolate turkey is from the window of La Maison du Chocolat in midtown and I'm sure it is delicious. Hope you enjoy your feast.

Falling Leaves

The trees are getting to be mostly bare in Central Park these days. And after all of the rain today and tomorrow there will definitely be many more falling leaves.

Last weekend they had a reenactment of the Battle of Ft. Washington, in Ft. Tryon park in Washington Heights. I don't know much about it but apparently it did not end well for the Americans. The reenactment brought out lots of people from the community to learn about the history of the area.

In Chelsea there's a shop called La Maison du Macaron with some delicious looking French style Macarons. I didn't taste any but I loved the colorful display in the window. It looks like they've got all kinds of flavors. I must go back. Have a great week!

Street vendors

These street vendors didn't have much business as evening was setting in the other night. At lunchtime they usually have lots of customers. Now that the holiday lights are up, these midtown streets will soon be crowded with holiday visitors. Have a nice weekend!

East River View

The waterfront in Williamsburg Brooklyn gives a gorgeous view of the East River and the East Side of Manhattan. There's a nice park there too where you can take a walk after taking in all of the calories at Smorgasburg.

My sweet tooth must be kicking in this week. This is another photo from "Smorgasburg" the food market in Williamsurg, Brooklyn. This guy was making s'mores and there was quite a line of people waiting for them. I didn't try one then, but one sounds good right now!

These tasty looking doughnuts were for sale at "Smorgasburg" the food flea market in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They have an incredible and delicious array of foods for sale there and there is an awesome view of Manhattan from the market. I had a fun time!

An engagement

This was an engagement I spotted during last week's marathon. The runner on the left had just asked his girlfriend who had been waiting along the route, to marry him. It was a sweet scene!

Lebow Statue

It's marathon weekend! They always move the statue of marathon founder Fred Lebow from it's usual spot at 90th Street and the East Drive in Central Park to the finish line of the marathon. There was an article about it in this week's Times. Enoy your weekend!

This is a photo of the Palisades across the Hudson River from New York City. It really looks like a transition from fall to winter in this photo. This was after the snowstorm last weekend, but now the snow has melted and it looks like fall again.

Columbus Circle

This is another example of the new exhibition of sculptures by the artist Peter Woytuk which are appearing all along Broadway now. This is one of two elephants at Colubus Circle. That's an apple he's carrying with his trunk. It's very lifelike in person!
