Elephants coming out of the tunnel.

Paparazzi is staged and ready.
Elephants still in tunnel, barely visible under denimed elbow, near left lane.
I Heart NY. Double thumbs up for photo op.
Double wave to the crowd lining 34th street from Midtown tunnel to Madison Square Garden.

Elephant Parade Through Midtown Tunnel

First signs, the trucks come through.
Salvation Army Disaster Preparedness van looks more like the canteen vehicle on a movie set.
And here is the guy that works inside of it.

Bella The Ringling Bros. Circus MC waits for the call that the elephants are close by in the tunnel.

Cher bathroom at El Centro, Hell's Kitchen

Do you believe in love after love, after love, after . . . They play only Cher's music in her bathroom.

Mosaic Cher.

Mini Cher. There were also bathrooms paying tribute to Elvis and Dolly Parton, and though they were open, I waited for Cher.

Hanger Art

This was one of the entries in Project Dumbo, the contest for lobby art to hang in jCondo in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It was very creative, and my favorite, but not voted in by the rest of the soon-to-be residents.

Big BLUE and Little BLUE

Big blue and little blue. If you click on the pic to enlarge, you can see a promo poster of BLUE straight down below the lamp post, and right above the blue awning.

Ayyub's Shoes

It's the shoes, Money.

jCondo Private Deck on 32nd Floor

Yeah! We got to see our new condo-in-progress briefly on Monday, March 19th.
Here is the deck where we'll enjoy afternoon sun. A bit smaller than the previously posted community deck on the same floor, but what a view!
Another view from 32, from our dining room window (click to enlarge).
Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.

jCondo Community Deck on 32nd Floor

Looking out the door at the community deck on the 32nd floor of jCondo.
The deck faces away from the East River and looks out at Brooklyn. It will be great for morning sun.

Sledding in DUMBO

A carless hill in Hillside dog park provides a nice grade for the sleds.

Northside Piers: Williamsburg River Front

Northside Piers, on the East River in Williamsburg, is going up fast (click on link to Curbed in title).
It fills up quite a bit of the sky.
Especially from my rooftop, where it has vanquished most of the previously glorious view of the Financial District:(

High Wire Act

I'm used to seeing pairs of tennis and other assorted shoes strung over electrical wires here in Williamsburg, but this is a new one.
It looks as though someone has created these connected figures with the sole purpose of upstaging the shoe strings.
This begs the question, what could you do with a Barrel o' Monkeys? Is there any way you could sling them over a high wire?
