Remarking at the Difference

The sidebar wishes you a gut yom tov!

I am...going to be spoiled by the high holy days.  On Friday, the office closed at 1. It was quiet as a tomb, anyway, as most of management is at least Jewish, if not rabbis and cantors.

I decided to walk across 41st Street, as it's not as hectic and crowded as 42nd. I had double-booked myself, so it was great to have the extra time to myself before the hectic evening to come.

 I particularly like the ones with lacy, fingerless gloves.  So classy!

The Great Satan

Growing up in a redneck town, it's weird to walk by giant,
conglomerations, to have a building to associate with the name and products.

Noticed this Francis Bacon quote on the sidewalk and really
enjoyed it.

5th Avenue flair

It's unfortunate this was facing the sun; I liked the contrast
of the older building in front of the modern, windowed skyscraper.

Too bad I was on the bus, this would've been a great Mirror
