Various Odds and Ends

How dogs love the snow!

It puts a spring in their step.

So much important stuff being carried up on the escalator at Penn  Station.

And downtown at World Trade Center Subway. Everyone bundled against the cold.

Dallas Barbeque has a red Christmas tree and windows that reflect far too much stuff. As in New York in general, everything's happening all at once.

Retro Santa on 18th Street wants us to buy someone else's old ornaments. 
Then one would have to start pondering the lives of those who once might have owned them.
Quite enough to do already this time of year............


  1. Our neighbor has three cocker spaniels that run through the snow in their yard with contageous joy. After emptying out a house this year I, too, wonder about the story behind the used ornaments.

  2. oh my...this first pic made me shiver of...cyber cold !

    stay warm, dear friend and enjoy your reading with a hot cup of tea !

    wishing you a very nice holiday and merry Christmas

  3. cold, cold, cold - and then I see the festive umbrellas on the sidewalk vendor's cart! classic.

  4. Your escalator at Penn Station shot is very nice! It reminds me of George Tooker's work, soft and impersonal.

  5. It's been a long time since I was in NYC -
    so great to have found you and see some pix!
    We (incl. the dogs) still miss snow overhere. Seems we have to get ready for a Green Christmas - again :(

  6. I am so sad I missed the snow! I flew out yesterday (it's a miracle). I love these pictures, it makes me not miss the NYC cold so much!

  7. Thanks for the comments on my blog. Best wishes with your Christmas plans, and thanks for your window on The Big Apple.

  8. Hi Elizabeth,

    Merry Christmas,
    Keep Warm!
    Much love,

  9. Lovely photos - and snow! Sigh... How wonderful!
