      WOW!! These are all terrific but the photo of Belvedere Castle caught just the right mood for the time of day.

      • Marilyn Charm says:

        At first glance, I thought it was the Tower of London. (I live in San Francisco and have never actually seen the real Belvedere Castle on visits in NY.)

      Loved all these photos but the one of the birds lined up on Columbus Ave. in the misty evening is a work of art.

      Hate to be that guy but that grill is illegal.

      You can’t use a grill on a balcony in NYC. It is a serious fire hazard.

      Cute photo but very very dangerous.

      These are times when I wish you had a like button! The statue on Riverside and 102nd reminds me of Frida Kahlo.
