The "Street Observations" Photo Blog featuring street photography and observations from photographer John Fraissinet. (Now in its 7th Year).
The World Trade Center Transportation Hub that is under construction has slowly been assembled. The ultimate design which you can see in this link, looks somewhat like a giant bird with needle spines making up the wings.
Here is the last spine being lifted into place.
With a little bit of movement, half standing in the street, a new juxtaposition becomes possible.
Now many of the street carts have rotating "Times Square" type zipper signs. They rotate around and try to get you to buy the items in the words. Some of them don't make much sense when you take them one word at a time. I waited for words to appear.
This is another.
I'm not sure they have programmed into their sign the word "Closed" though.
This one is fairly reasonable, but a bit redundant. I think we all know they have Hot Dogs. It's pretty clear.
Not sure if I would buy a House from these guys those.
Sometimes in the modern world there is a flashback to another time. This reminds me of my father commuting on the train during his working days. I remember being fascinated when he told me that the subway was in a tunnel underneath the ground. What do you see out the windows? Mostly nothing was his answer.
