To Indiana…

As I mentioned I travelled to Indiana this past weekend… here is assortment of random photos from the trip…

The Sun setting while taxing out of the terminals at JFK.

Oil rainbow…

There are some things you don’t often see (or rather notice) in NYC. Maybe because you’re distracted by everything else around you. But this past weekend I travelled to Indiana and saw this oil rainbow in a parking lot…

Parking lot - oil rainbow.

…how can something which defines pollution be so beautiful?

Shots from the River…

There are a few free things you can do in New York City… most of them aren’t that cool.

Taking the Ikea Shuttle for free though is definitely one of the more enjoyable NYC free options!…

Tasting Wine… Long Island Style…

This past weekend… after nearly 4 years of living in New York City… and nearly 10 years living in New York State… I FINALLY went wine tasting.

The weather didn’t cooperate completely but who cares when wine is involved!

Ground Zero…

Yesterday I was driving down the westside highway and, once again, was stunned at the lack of progress made on the WTC site in the nearly 9 years since 9/11…

World Trade Center Site - April 2010

For a city that prides itself on being the “City that never sleeps”… you would hope they would spend some of that time not sleeping on getting this memorial up!

A little more information on the progress of the WTC site…


Spring Colors in bloom…

I love sunshine!

Colors of the season….

PINK - Cherry Blossoms in Bloom.

GREEN - plants overgrown on stoop.

And because its Wednesday… a little random New York City-ness….

Notes from the New York Underground
The subway doors open. A hobo enters, holding a bottle of windex in one hand and a tube of toothpaste in the other.

Hobo: Which is the better time to read Dostyevsky? Winter?

He sprays the windex.

Hobo: Or Spring?

He squeezes toothpaste out of the tube.

Japanese girl: Spring!

Hobo: You are correct.

The warm glow…

It’s hard to see a sunset and not be drawn to it… the sky is a mix of amazing colors…

But sometimes turning around to the warm orange glow that it casts upon whatever it shines down upon is equally as amazing…

Cactus in a winter sunset - Phoenix, Arizona.


Come on spring!…

Like most people I talk to …. I am eager for warmth to return to New York City!

Of course in east coast style I’m sure I will be complaining about the heat eventually too…

An evening walk by the Brooklyn Museum… *so glad it’s not raining!*
