Some dude managed to climb over the railing and down onto a small beach-like area of the East River in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge. Seeing someone splash around here is not an every day sight.

The Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, all decked out for yesterday's annual Pride Parade. Stonewall is considered by many to be the birthplace of the gay rights movement in the USA. This year the parade took on special meaning with Friday's passage of a law legalizing same-sex marriage in New York.

Louise Nevelson's sculptures are featured prominently on the plaza that bears her name. This is Maiden Lane & William Street, in the heart of the financial district. I shot this thru a store window while taking shelter from the rain.

Two building entrances, only about 2 blocks apart. The first has seen better days - Hotel George Washington - saved from demolition by preservationists. The second looking mighty fine - Gramercy House - a beautiful art deco apartment building.

A few street scenes near yesterday's Celebrate Israel Parade at 5th Ave and Central Park South. (1) Flags outside The Plaza include an Israeli flag for the occasion; (2) NYPD eye in the sky keeping things safe; (3) Jew Hoos - love those shirts!
