Also -- here are some photos from my BEA week.
|View from the Top of the Standard (Washington and 13th) looking south to downtown.|
|From the Top of the Standard looking west (sort of) across the Hudson River to the lovely shores of New Jersey.|
|Northish view from one the bathroom stalls at the Top of the Standard. V. surprising bathroom stalls.|
|Eastish view from the Top of the Standard...|
|I enjoyed this little walkway with glass floor and glass banister. I like vertiginous stuff.|
|On a panel (I am on the right) with (l-r) Naomi Novik, N.K. Jemisin, and Catherynne Valente at the NYPL.|
|Okay listen, I went to the Met and took a thousand pictures, but I'm going to be nice and only show you two.|
First, the flags in my favorite room, the knights-in-armor room.
|Second, in the musical instrument department, which has the best|
views of the knights-in-armor room (see the colorful flags in the
reflected glass?), this funny bell guy.
|In the American Museum of Natural History (where I needed to do some fact-checking) I beheld a scene of terror.|
|I liked this poem in my subway train.|
|Murals seen while walking on the High Line. The best new way to get from points|
between Gansevoort Street and 30th-something Street on the West Side.
|And check out that sky!|
|Central Park -- nice day for a ballgame.|
|And looking up.|
|And finally, looking west, over 46th Street, at a pretty sunset.|
