Excellent Dumpling

For the best scallion pancakes go to Excellent Dumpling

on Lafayette Street near Canal.
Totally no frills. You are in and out in about 15 minutes.

Everyone looks rather bored hanging about waiting for the train.

The only solution, really, is to eat stuff.

From a Distance

On the whole, I prefer things up rather close so they aren't so overwhelming.
Here the Manhattan skyline seen from the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel.
Monday January 18th.

13th Street looking south over the roofs of the West Village.
Tuesday 19th January

13th Street looking north.
This is the view from where I get my hair cut.

Yellow, and a Morning Conversation

8:30 am on a cold morning on 22nd Street.

8:45 am The West Side Highway a symphony in chrome yellow, 
not to mention the big pails with sand and grit in them
and the traffic lights and the school bus.

I really don't much like bright yellow
 - but I suppose it is used so people notice it.
This van says "TRUCK 'N ROLL" 
The bit of the High Line looms above.

Strange Phenomena

This morning I saw this lone glove on the railings near where I live.
I'm not sure whether anyone will ever claim it.

This appeared last week in the same place.
 Is it a sort of sign language? Is there a message to the universe?

Last year someone documented all the lost, lone gloves of New York.
I will keep you posted when others appear at this location.

Taken at noon on New Year's Day.
Wishing you all a healthy, happy and prosperous
 New Year.
