Photo by myself on the 4th Avenue subway platform in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
There are a few outdoor subway platforms in Brooklyn and Queens. It's a thrilling experience when the subway emerges from the tunnel, and you can see Manhattan in the distance.
The bad thing, of course, is that the platforms are exposed in the winter months. I couldn't resist taking this photo, as the light was turning golden.
Just a note from Boston folks, where it's also very cold. I'm here visiting my grandfather, who is a whopping 99 years old.
He is animated as ever and insists that he's 97! It was refreshing to sit with him and hear him say how fortunate he feels about his life. I've promised myself to visit him more often.
Anyway, I will be back in New York tomorrow. Happy weekend, everyone!
