This is on the side of a restaurant. Not sure I'd be comfortable eating at the outdoor tables with those faces looking at me!

Draken Harald Harfagre

This is a reconstruction of a Viking ship. It sailed by wind power from Norway to Newfoundland much as they sailed 1000 years ago. It was impossible to get a decent photo of a wooden Viking ship moored between a tug boat and a yacht! But I learned some interesting history for my Viking DNA!

The voyage took 5 weeks with a crew of 35. There was another tent under the canopy where they slept and took shelter in nasty weather. Thirty-five people and no shower is my idea of hell!

These are some of the news cameras lined up Sunday morning hoping for a shot at something regarding the explosion in Chelsea. There was really no new news to be had and they were 3/4 of a block away from the detonation site so it's unlikely they would have anything photo worthy to shoot but hope springs eternal.

This is 5 blocks from my apartment...luckily safer and quieter there.

Survivor Tree

This is the miracle Survivor Tree, a callery pear tree. Its charred trunk was pulled from the wreckage at Ground Zero and nurtured back to health in the Bronx. When the park at the 911 Memorial was ready for it the tree was transplanted once again. It was around 6 feet tall and now is about 46 feet tall.

The white winged building is the Oculus - a $4 billion transportation hub (and mall). It is next to the 911 Museum and Memorial and replaces the subway station that was obliterated when the towers fell. It hasn't taken 15 years to get the trains running again but this station was years in the making.

The fountain was hard to photograph but fun to watch. A boy was wandering through the water and dodging the alternating sprays of water. I kind of wanted to take my shoes off and join in!
