Happy Thanksgiving—Window Displays, MOMA, and Central Park Images

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone living in the U.S. and Happy Thursday to those of you living elsewhere.

Empire State Building

I’m in New York visiting family and as we do most year’s we spent yesterday walking around Manhattan and taking in the sights and museums and as I do most year’s I thought I would share a few pictures from the day.

Window Displays

Macy’s is only a block away from Penn Station and so it’s naturally our first stop. This year Macy’s had different displays along different sides of the building.

One side displayed some holiday looking characters. I caught the reflection of my brother in the mailbox of the second picture.

The other side had a neon theme and yes you could scratch Willow’s nose, though I opted not to.

Sak’s featured characters from Frozen, though not having seen either the first or second movie, I had no idea who they were.

New York Public Library

We stopped at the library this year to see an exhibit featuring pictures and letters, including some handwritten ones, from J.D. Salinger. As you probably know Salinger became a recluse after the success of The Catcher in the Rye and so no cameras were allowed inside the exhibit.

I did however get a picture outside the library and one of the tree inside.

Museum of Modern Art

Our main stop was MOMA. It just reopened after being closed a few months of renovation that added 40,000 square feet of new gallery space. I’ve always liked the building itself, which offers interesting views of other parts of the museum and the city itself.

Of course the main reason to be there is the art. Here’s a sampling of what we saw.

Central Park

This year we didn’t walk through Central Park, but we did walk alongside it for a time and I managed to snap a few pics, including a couple of horse drawn carriages riding up Central Park West.

Happy Thanksgiving

I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures from our walk. The first is a hippo statue, that I haven’t captured before as far as I can remember.

The second you might recognize as one of the spires of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. I think it’s one of the few times I didn’t cut off the top.

Once again Happy Thanksgiving to every in the U.S. and Happy Thursday to anyone not celebrating.
