The Man with the Hat

He was totally comfortable in his hat at his peered out across the street, looking uptown.  I do like the perspective from this corner.

The Fortune Teller

In the southwest corner of Union Square Park, near the purple plants, can be found the woman also in purple.  She knows all the secrets... yours and those that are not yours.  She will reveal them to you with the aid of a crystal ball.  As she leans towards you, she will stare into your soul and reveal the details that you need to know the answers to.  The purple reveals, the purple reveals.

Flatiron Building

It occurred to me that in all my years in New York City, I had never taken any pictures of the Flatiron Building located by Madison Square Park.  I took a lunch time excursion and circled the building.  It really is rather extraordinary.  Wikipedia's description gives you all the details.

Why a Chair?

This walkway that passes the abandoned Fulton Fish Market is generally only occupied by strollers and bicycles.  On this day though, there was an unexplained chair plucked down on the path.  Why?  How?  When?

A previously blocked off corner of Chase plaza now allows a new perspective of the cross street of Liberty and William streets.  Right across the street is the corner of the Federal Reserve building.

Last Show

I went up to the Ed Sullivan Theater to look around before David Letterman's last show ever.  There were a few fanatics hanging around, a lot of press, etc.  These two guys attracted a lot of attention, as they had a speciall made tee shirt commemorating the event.  It made special note that they were from Ohio.  I heard a reporting talking to people online, and one respond to the question, "What should Dave do now?"  His response was that he should start drinking.  A humorous response, except I'm pretty sure that Mr. Letterman is an alcoholic and has not had a drink for many years.  Wonder if it was funny enough to make air, or whether someone might have edited it out based on his personal issues.
