The Christmas tree at the Stuyvesant Town Oval. A resident told me that the star at the top is a hand-me-down that had been used on the Rockefeller Center tree in past years. Tishman-Speyer owns both properties, so, it may be true.

Two, three and four-wheelers covered with snow on Grand Street - first snow storm of the season.

Looking across Manhattan's Grand Army Plaza from Central Park South towards Bergdorf Goodman and it's windows decorated with Christmas wreaths.

Friendly Santa greeting passengers outside the Transit Police office at the Columbus Circle subway station.

I took a slow bus ride down 5th Avenue this evening. Thanks to traffic, the bus stopped long enough for me to grab this shot of a couple gazing at one of the many holiday windows along the avenue.

I love this roofscape along Park Row. The building at the left is part of Pace University (a building I know all too well). Too bad it was such a cloudy day.

New residential construction along the Wiliamsburg (Brooklyn) waterfront, an area that was once mostly industrial.

A small house on Commerce Street seems dwarfed by its neighbor.

Changing face of New York revisited. Another view - different angle - of the Woolworth Building (left) and nearby new construction.

2 for 1: The Sun - it shines for all - The clock and thermometer are all that's left of the New York Sun newspaper at its former headquarters (Broadway & Chambers Street) just across from City Hall Park. The newspaper was published from 1833 - 1966. A contemporary New York Sun began publishing in 2002 and folded earlier this year. According to Wikipedia, it had no connection to the earlier newspaper, other than sharing the same name and motto.

Another view of the Williamsburg Bridge - from a closer angle. Those cars and trucks on the outer roadway seem so vulnerable from this angle.

White Horse Tavern, in Greenwich Village, where Dylan Thomas used to hang out. I can't say whether or not the place has changed much since Thomas left us (1953). But, it would be safe to assume that the surveillance cameras outside weren't there in Thomas' day.
