On February 12, Lincoln's birthday, the color red began to announce itself, especially at night in the East Village. Nothin' but heartbreak.

A pleasant day for a visit to Bellevue Hospital and a stroll along the East River. Waterside Plaza has nice views of the river, but it's a little out of the way. Getting there involves walking on a pedestrian bridge over the FDR.

Valentine's Day. Romantic.
Madison Square Garden, an imposing structure, is undergoing an extensive $800 million renovation, inside and out.

Throughout the last month, I've been documenting my favorite buildings in NoHo for an upcoming post. It's hard to see from a good angle, but at 65 Bleecker Street is this ornate building by architect Louis Sullivan.

And then the snow melted. It was a surprise, even a shock, to see the bare sidewalks. The day was nice enough for al fresco dining, as seen here on the deck of Bareburger.
|Day 48. LaGuardia Place, Village, Snow melting.|
Ah, Friday. It was 65 degrees. It was fun while it lasted.
|Day 49. Hats for sale, Bleecker Street and Sullivan Street. A warm day.|
