Our First Snow

All is well but quite a night, a fire broke out at our building. I posted all my pictures and video on this blog LES NYC Window- which I meant to post about here as a new photo blog for my NYC pix. Sorry the first post is about a fire but again, we were told no one was hurt and the fire dept here was truly fast and amazing.

A nice thing about today and tonight is that it's our first snow here in the new place! It's beautiful! :)
The first flurries earlier in the eve:

NYC Subway Mosaic Art


It's one of the few things that can probably get a busy NYC commuter to slow down for a second, the mosaic art underground. Look around next time you are running for a train, it might be worth catching the next one just to look at these up close. I saw these last night. Truly beautiful.

About them: There are 2 large wall sized pieces of artwork, one on each wall where the staircase exits and transfers are, and the artist for both glass mosaics is Ming Fay (2004). The Downtown side is titled "Shad Crossing" and details two giant shad fish "swimming", along with another wall mosaic of blue waters. In the late 19th century, these shad were found along the Hudson River when new immigrants came to New York, most of them settled on the Lower East side. The new staircase to the relocated F/T booth also has another painting of a shad wrapped around the bottom of the stairs. The Uptown side is titled "Delancey Orchard"; it has a cherry orchard tree mosaic, which symbolized the tree owned by the Delancey family in the 18th century. Along all staircases leading from the F line platforms to either fare control are miniature versions of these paintings (edit: They say "paintings" but they are large mosaics made to look like paintings :))
