This former patch of concrete - about 20 feet wide by 1 city block long - was transformed into a garden with a variety of shrubs and flowers, plus a winding path.

I liked the shadows cast by the tree against the side of this building.

The Orchard, by Ming Fay, is a glass mosaic at the Delancey Street subway station on the Lower East Side (north-bound platform). The image below is comprised of 3 photos, stitched together (click to enlarge).

Some interesting-looking machinery on 7th Ave South.

3-for-1: The owners of Stuyvesant Town & Peter Cooper Village announced the planting of 10,000 new trees and thousands of shrubs and flowers, in what is probably one of the largest single landscaping projects in Manhattan. On a walk thru 80 acre site I saw all kinds of trees, flowers and shrubs - in all shapes and sizes - lined up, waiting to be planted.

I posted a photo taken at this spot about a month ago, when there were very early signs of color. This tiny garden looks a lot different today. This is at Ahearn Park, on Grand Street.

The new building on the left is using air rights of the smaller building on the right in a unique way.

A "cool" way to get around town. I was using a more modest method of travel - a NYC Transit bus. This car pulled alongside us at traffic light.

Power to the People! An ugly corner of the East Village thanks to the ConEd power station. I know, nobody wants a power plant in their backyard. But, everyone wants the power it generates - and more and more of it all the time.

The setting sun shining on the south and western facades of Silver Towers. The 3 apartment towers, designed by I. M. Pei are under consideration for landmark status by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission, causing considerable controversy.

Ticket windows at Shea Stadium. Tomorrow is the first home game of the final season for the NY Mets at Shea.

Those legendary NYC Taxis - always around, except when you need one!

2-for-1: Two of the many sculptures by Tom Otterness installed at the subway station at 14th Street & 8th Ave. I previously posted another work by Otterness at Battery Park City. But, the subway exhibit, Life Underground, includes one my favorites of his - the gator (or is it a crock?) coming out of the manhole grabbing the kid.

A sure sign of spring in Seward Park. When little plastic flags sprout up from the ground, I know that beautiful, spring flowers can't be too far behind.

Fresh seafood for sale on the streets of Chinatown.
