At 59th Street and a Visitor's Point of View

Newstand, 59th Street
Photo by myself on the subway platform at 59th Street, Columbus Circle.

Temperatures fell Tuesday night to about 18 degrees Fahrenheit.

Due to gusty winds, the temperature feels like it is 2 degrees Fahrenheit, or negative 7 degrees Celcius. Indoor photos are best during this type of weather.

Some of the larger subway platforms have newstands. They are a nice opportunity to grab a magazine or a drink before taking the train.


Here's another installment of New York photographs from a visitor's point of view. My friend Washington from Curitiba, Brazil, visited New York last summer. He and his wife Marcia stayed for 15 days and saw just about everything there was to see.

They toured every neighborhood in Manhattan, saw a bit of Brooklyn and even went out to Harlem and New Jersey.

Some wonderful contrast of color and texture, in the Village.
