I have been rather uninspired this week. So only three rather random items today.
On Sunday we went for our usual bike ride down the Hudson bike path. At Battery Park City they are building all sorts of new ferry docks - so people can commute from Jersey - which you can see in the distance.
The notice says "Yankee(closed) Stadium". Some wag who works on the dock must have snagged it from uptown.
Such a jumble of objects under bright sunshine.
This open air seating area is new and exciting.
It is by the Flat Iron Building at the intersection of 23rd Street, 5th Avenue and Broadway. Basically they have narrowed Broadway and put all these tables and planters. You can look at tourists and traffic and across to Madison Square Park.
There is a stunning view of the Empire State Building.
Well done, New York.
The Blue Water Grill, just by the green market in Union Square is very swanky (I've been there once). Anyway,walking past on the way to buy flowers, I look in and see how luxe and glam it is and hope to go there again.
