(December 15) It was a very cold and windy day, but I decided to walk around a little and headed south from Penn Station on the west side. Eventually I had to head east so I could get to Madison Ave. in the Lennox Hill area. This was to be my only walk around the city during the holiday season.

The reindeer have gotten smaller in this recession.

I’ve been meaning to get photos of this station before.

It’s one of those curious PATH station entrances in the side of a building.

These too, have mosaics.

As I was walking uptown on 3rd Ave near 23rd St, I happened to look down and see this. The Web knows a thing or two about it. You can see the tree here.

There’s some kind of construction going on here.
What is that I see there?…. is it, … could it be…?

Sleeping in the backhoe. You think? Your call.

which side of this hole is sunny?
Sunnyside Yards.

train yard
Amtrak soils New York with Jersey Transit’s trains here.

sunny side down
It’s sort of the waiting room. For some reason this makes more sense than sending them back to Jersey. Probably money changes hands.

This cherry-picker is used to paint the elevated subway lines.
It is covered in splatter of many colors.
