"Snowy Mists"

I like number two(South Street Seaport with most of the bridge - which bridge, you ask? look, there's never been more than ONE bridge) in the background: so atmospheric. And I like number four: so peaceful, until you spot the security camera looking out for terrorists and perverts, and know you're in Bushamerika.

Thanks for dropping by "bodmin". We don't get many strangers in these parts so come again.

As for that security cam yeah I'd hoped no one would notice. If you click, and enlarge the damned thing sticks out like a sore thumb.

Still yes it was very peaceful that morning. One of them special NY moments that Capra might have captured.

Well downtown is no "Bedford Falls", but we do okay in the heartful dept. sometimes.

...and yes there is only 'one' bridge.

Btw that alley, just off Maiden Lane is my favorite short cut to my regular deli.

There's plenty of one or two block "alley's" at the tip of Manhattan here.

Back in the 'day' when the Dutch, and or Brits were in City Hall these were major streets, and avenues.

I wonder. Will 5th Avenue or 42nd Street be just a few narrow blocks, or alley's in the 23rd or 26th centuries?

Actually, I'm not a stranger; been here before, just like I been in Brooklyn before. It's just after I realised a lot of youse dudes be callin' yourselfs after youse cats, I decided I'd differentiate myself from the other anonymouses by borrowing my cat's moniker. He don't mind, as long as he gets fed.
No need to apolgise for the security cam: that's what makes the picture. It's often the detail that forces you to reevaluate the whole picture (not just the photo, but your whole picture of the world) that makes the picture. If youse gets what I mean.
