It's 20 degrees. Why would you take your boots off and leave them on the sidewalk? There are better places to leave them if you want to donate!

Here are some of my favorite ghostly pier remains in the Hudson River. They have been there a long time regardless of the ice surrounding them and the water rushing by them and the stress and strain of the pier above them when they were young.
Morning temperature: 5 degrees

This is the viewing area on the High Line. Not sure if that means people on the High Line can view below or if people below can view the people on the High Line. Of course, it works both ways. Usually there are a lot of people sitting up there but the cold weather is keeping them away.
Morning temperature: 31 degrees on a day that the high is predicted to be 28 degrees!

It will be interesting to watch this restoration project in the meatpacking district. The building has been gutted to the exterior walls. The first floor is mostly cement block now but they are trying to keep that original second floor. It's held in place by steel support beams inside and out.
Morning temperature: 14 degrees and 4 inches of fresh snow

I saw this sign posted on a wall first. It wasn't near anything in particular. I didn't know what it referred to...Japanese Inspired Mexican souvenirs...clothing? Later I saw that it was food. My mind can't wrap around what kind of food this could be...Mexican sushi...Japanese chefs chopping up pork? - and I'm not sure I'd dare to try it!
Morning temperature: 31 degrees

I was seduced by a recipe for Chocolate Stout Cake. I think everything went blurry after the word chocolate and my impaired thinking didn't consider that Stout is beer of which I am not a fan. When I saw a bottle of Chocolate Stout...I bought it and made the cake. I felt the cake had a "hoppy" taste but with a little chocolate ganache and whipped cream I said...Let me eat cake!
And I took it to a birthday party where prior consumption of Margaritas dulled the senses to beer hops. Chocolate is good and all was well.
Morning temperature: 26 degrees

Made a trip to the Guggenheim designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for a special boy's birthday. An art gallery in a spiral is an interesting concept. And "Guggenheim" is fun to say!
Do you think anyone ever called ol' Sol Guggenheim "Guggie"?

I like to look at the ironwork on the fences and stairways of the old brownstones...each a little different from the other. Not exactly what I would call my style (if I have one) but I can appreciate it and the history it signifies.
Morning temperature: 25 degrees
