What's Scrolling in Midtown

LED signs, Midtown
Photo by myself in Midtown, around 32nd Street and Seventh Avenue.

Across the street from Penn Station is an LED sign I hadn't seen before. The news scrolls down a wall and along the pavement, zig-zagging its way down the street. Anything to get some attention.

Some days are windier than others. There are days when it feels as if my body were held upright by the oncoming, cold wind.

After battling the icy winds, there's nothing like a hot cup of tea at home. The well-deserved award! These days we have to remember to pamper ourselves;)

My office is just around the corner from that sign. It always freaks me out to step on the LED section of the sidewalk.
