No Theme

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.


  1. I love your random shots, Elizabeth! New York is wonderfully random, isn't it?

  2. It's been that kind of a week...
    Cool photos though, as usual. ;-)

  3. Cool photos from an "uninspired" blogger nonetheless. I like the still life one in the post below too. There seem to be a lot of bloggers in a funk lately. Perhaps it's the political climate.

  4. Dearest Elizabeth, love the random shot too. Happy weekend :D

  5. Yes, cool photo, indeed! Always.


  6. Elizabeth, I do love your shot of the umbrella'd tables by our beloved flatiron building.

    Hope to see you before you leave for England, but ... I am taking a few days off to celebrate my own aged birthday.

    Best wishes to you and your auntie.


I look forward to hearing from you!
