Weekend Photo Mix
It seemed as if we were all over the place this past weekend, from the Upper West Side, through Chelsea, and downtown near City Hall. The first shot is of a vintage Ferrari, parked on Ninth Avenue in Chelsea. Because New York City is a place of money, one is never surprised by the cars one sees. Bentleys, Rolls, Aston-Martins, and Ferraris are not unusual, from vintage models to the latest examples costing several hundred thousand each. Mercedes, BMWs, and Jaguars are so commonplace as to be ignored. This Ferrari, however, was drawing a crowd. Most observers couldn't believe it was parked on the street, given its potential value as a 1950s or early 60s model. The second and third photos are from the Houston St. subway stop for the 1 train. The station is full of these beautiful marine-themed mosaics. Finally, there's a photo from downtown, taken on Chambers Street, just east of Broadway, looking east to one of the city's municipal buildings.
