Light Installation

This is a light installation at Lincoln Center, the performing arts complex on the Upper West Side. I'm afraid I don't know any of the details about it. But it looks really great at night. I'll be away next week so enjoy the weekend and the week ahead!

They were getting shoppers attention today with these giant red balloons at the opening of a new Century 21 department store on the Upper West Side. The balloons certainly caught my eye.

Summer Flowers

Since we are getting close to the first day of fall, I figure this is my last chance for a while to show some summer flowers! These flowers are pretty for any season.

Tut's Fever

This is from "Tut's Fever," an installation by the artists Red Grooms and Lysiane Luong at the Museum of the Moving Image. The installation is a working movie theatre done in an Egyptian theme. This was the concession stand. The whole thing was really fun. You can read about it here.

I visited the Museum of the Moving Image this weekend, a very interesting place in Astoria Queens, dedicated to the history and technology of the moving image. They have a great exhibit now about the work of Jim Henson. It was a lot of fun.

These are stars I saw in a florist window recently. I think they are Moravian stars? Enjoy your weekend!

Yankee Stadium

A few weeks ago I showed you a photo from the new Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets. And now I've had the chance to take in a game at the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Luckily it was a great game, a beautiful day and the Yankees won. It's another great place to see a game. We are lucky to have two teams here in New York!

This week is fashion week in New York and although this photo has nothing to do with the shows (they are showing spring and summer fashions right now) it made me remember this photo I took a while back. I loved the silhouettes of these dresses. Some day I'd love to see one of the runway shows!

I happened across the Norwegian Gem recently as it headed out of New York on its way to Bermuda. The ship looks enormous up close and holds over 2,000 people. The passengers must have been excited to head out on their vacation. I've never been on a cruise but it might be something to try someday.

Gehry Building

This is another new skyscraper going up in lower Manhattan. This tower designed by the architect Frank Gehry is 76 stories tall and will be a luxury residential building. You can read more about here. Have a good week.

The tower going up in the center of this photo will be the new One World Trade Center when it is completed. This weekend the new memorial garden will be dedicated at the former site of the World Trade Center, in front of the new tower. I'm thinking of all of those lives that were lost there.

Jean Nouvel Tower

I love the look of this tower by the French architect Jean Nouvel located in Chelsea. You can read more about it and see photos from inside here. Wish I could afford to live there! On the left in the photo is the Metropolitan Life Company Tower.

U.S. Open

This was the scene at the U.S. Open tennis tournament over the weekend in Flushing, Queens. The matches were totally rained out yesterday, hopefully they'll have better luck with the weather today.

Jet skier

Jet skiing seems to be a popular past time now on the Hudson River. I see more and more of them in the warmer months. I imagine the water is pretty cold even in the summer so it's a good thing this guy has his wet suit. Even in a suit I don't know if I'd get in that water!

Clam Pizza

Doesn't this pizza look delicious! I had this clam covered pizza at a restaurant in Greenwich Village recently. It was yummy.
