Metal Ferns


More on Rockefeller Center, the Art Deco extravaganza. Here is a detail of a bronze statue, one of a symmetrically placed pair, which have giant fern fronds graciously presenting the central area in front of the main building, presently occupied by an ice skating rink . Must be the last few days for the skaters, winter came back today for a little while, but it's fighting a losing battle. Very soon, as every spring, the ice thaws and then there are cafe tables with umbrellas to protect us from the sun...

Yeah, the weather is fluctuating these days... a few days into April, and some small snow showers forecasted over here in Providence... !

I hear that it's snowing in upstate NY today - here is it cold but clear weather.

I love this ice-skating rink - and the statue is impressive!

I cant explain it but your photos are making NY seem smaller(in a good way!) and friendlier than I thought possible.
Really enjoying your blog.

I think the impressions of visitors to any city is much different than a resident. As a resident I try to find the human experiences, the intimate, the mangeable. We navigate in ways to avoid the insanity as much as possible. We try to find the oases. We learn to live not just survive. Thanks for all the positive. Lucy and I have a lot of exciting ideas along with the spontaneous photos.

Every person have a different prespective of the same place, it's more the eyes rather then being resident or not, i think.

It was just by the rockerfeller centre that I learned all about pumkin carving - USA style! this brings back memories. (Not the ferns, they've grown since I was there)

As Chris said, NY seems so much more quiet than it really is. I do too enjoy reading your postings everyday. NY is such a great city! and your blog is excellent.

It's nice to see Rockefeller Center just a little busy. I've only ever been over Thanksgiving weekend (with the whole rest of the world).

Spent alot of time around this area back in September when I visited. Mainly because it has Nintendo World in close vicinity! :)

Great photo guys!
