Photo by myself on Fifth Avenue, in Midtown.
Visitors are out in full force right now along Fifth Avenue. The weather has taken a turn for winter. The lower temperatures seem even lower with the brisk wind.
I think this was taken around Rockefeller Center. Across the street is St. Patrick's Cathedral, which is now under scaffolding for repairs or cleaning. Incidentally, the main branch of the New York Public Library is also being cleaned. The west side facing Bryant Park is absolutely pristine, while the east side entrance is obscured.
It's unfortunate - on any given visit to New York, some iconic buildings will be under scaffolding. This means that if you visit, you'll have to visit at least twice to get a full view of everything.
