Some of Brooklyn, Some of Manhattan including Ground Zero, and a side trip to New Haven, CT

The Chinese take-out at Nostrand and Lafayette
Waiting forever (2hrs) for the Megabus to Baltimore, standing in the hot sun, the Megabus staff being anything but kindly. Never doing that again!

Some people avail themselves of organic fruit shakes whilst waiting for their bus.

When you're tired, mirrors and lights become the place - Cafe Lafayette, Brooklyn

A perfectly happy tree, Van Buren Street, Brooklyn
A visit to Ground Zero, as it were. They're constructing a monstrosity - a shopping mall to honor a catastrophe. It looks to be an alien spacecraft.

Little Italy, Manhattan

Quintessential BKLYN, Nostrand Ave. near Willoughby

Jingle jangle morning, Flatbush Ave. at Lafayette, Brooklyn - lotsa traffic

New Haven, CT, is a rough town. But who can decipher this image of who is so "murdered & missing?"

New Haven, un-lovely, except for the occasional colonial-era cupola, revealing where the coastline used to be.

This Christmas cactus dates back to the 1880s

Another thing I love to see when I visit New Haven is Marcel Breuer's Armstrong-Pirelli Tire Building, used as a billboard these days by Ikea
