Snow in Central Park

I went to the park the day after the wet snow storm.

Fort Gansevoort

In front of the door is a triangle in the road that marks the site of an old Native American “castle”, so called because there was a wall around it. The door is at 5 Ninth Avenue, NYC.

A little history: Fort Gansevoort early 19c. and before that Native Americans lived there.

High Line Early Spring

A few signs of spring have appeared on the High Line. Cherries just starting; and Crocci and Witch Hazel are in full swing. It was amusing to watch the Mockingbirds hopping around a foot away from all the people walking by. A lady waved her cane at them and they didn’t even blink.


The Ansonia, designed by noted architect Paul Duboy, opened in 1904 as a luxury hotel stretching along Broadway between 73rd and 74th streets. By the 1970s it was converted into rental apartments and it is now a designated Landmark on the Upper West Side.
