Under Construction/Renovation

Needless to say, I have been doing a lot of walking about.
What I've noticed is that lots of buildings are being fixed up one way or another.
This one is on 5th Avenue around 20th Street. I like the idea that the drop cloth is pretending to be the building itself.
A useful idea.

Two more pictures of the same building...............

Of course, in view of what's been happening lately, one feels a little wary of the cranes..........but they are fun to take pictures of.

This construction is in Union Square. The billowing plastic a contrast to all the green plants below.
New York is always renewing itself.


  1. Been enjoying catching up with your NY posts...even under construction NY is great! Happy Days ((HUGS))

  2. That is the neatest and largest drop cloth I've ever seen. Great shot! :)

  3. Ah...New York!
    seems so far...
    don't you miss you dear Marrakech?

    Have a great day!

  4. Yes, the printed canvas over the renovation is a good idea. Definitely than the usual plastic tharp.

  5. Looks like there is as much building going on in New YJork as over here.

  6. I was going to say, watch out for those cranes! New York is a work of art in itself, though...

  7. Amazing drop cloth!

    Such a contrast to Marrakesh!

  8. Interesting that there's always construction going on in the city.


  9. The mind boggles at the amount of yardage in that drop cloth

  10. Love the drop cloth idea. I've never seen that done before. Crazy New Yorkers ;)

  11. What a refreshing look at the city, Elizabeth!
    I love New York, especially walking it early morning when the city is still stretching from her sleep and the air is crisp. Reminds me dearly of my Lisbon.
    You might enjoy checking out my friend Brain's blog and his view of the city...



I look forward to hearing from you!
