| . . . on the Upper East Side, just down the block|
from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I didn't see these folks' furniture, but they
had some beautiful mirrors. And no, I didn't—
it was already (conveniently) uncovered.

|Somewhere in the West Village:|
I took this shot at the end of February—so if
these started out as a holiday decoration,
I'd like to think that they decided to
keep them up. Because what's more festive
than fairy lights (at any time of the year)?

|That's the name of this art installation by|
Gilberto Aceves Navarro. There are 122 bike
sculptures spread out over 10 public spaces in
Brooklyn and lower Manhattan this summer.
The sculptor hopes that we'll visit them all—
by bike, of course (a ten-mile loop).

|I looked for a plant label for this beauty|
and couldn't find one. But I could tell
by the foliage that's it's a canna cultivar, so
I'm going with 'Orange Bengal Tiger'.

|This is the church of Santa Maria Assunta,|
more commonly called the Gesuiti,
in Venice. I showed the façade on this post.
But to me the interior is what's special—
the "fabric" (valance, fringe, and tassels too) draped
around this pulpit are all made of marble.
