Photo by myself on Lafayette and Bond Streets, in Noho.
A mural depicting part of the Sistine Chapel fresco hangs above a street corner in NoHo.
The original mural by Michelangelo is huge, and illustrates all the parts of Genesis. This particular scene shows God giving life to Adam. It is the most recognizable panel.
I'm not sure who painted the mural, above, or its significance. It doesn't seem to be an advertisement.

Did anyone catch the Giants' game yesterday?!
Mark and I rarely watch football, but we couldn't refrain from supporting a New York team so close to the finals. The Giants won a nail biting contest against San Francisco that went into overtime, 20 to 17.
The Superbowl takes place in two weeks, on February 5th. New York will play the New England Patriots, who are favored to win by 3 points. Mark and I will certainly be tuning in!
