Dusk, in Bryant Park

Bryant Park, nyc
Photo by myself in Bryant Park, at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.

My favorite time of day is just before darkness, when all the street lights turn on.

There is something European about Bryant Park. Perhaps it's the formal squares of planting, or the little cafe chairs spread about? In any case, surrounded by tall buildings, the park is a welcome relief to the hard edges of Midtown.

As an update, everything thing is business as usual, here.

My profession (architecture) is a tad slow right now. People are very, very cautious with their money. Clients are always asking us to figure out how they can save money, which is a little upsetting, since our fee is based on the construction cost (!).

My fiance Mark is in advertising, which is hopping, on the other hand. Always something to sell.

Great picture yet again, Kitty. I noticed the trees here don't have leaves anymore. I was planning to go to New York in late October to mid-November just to see the orange trees in Central Park. I hope you don't mind me asking if the trees still have leaves by then. Thanks.
