A new red tail hawk in Tompkins Square Park, additional to the two first-year hawks that overwintered here. This is either mating behavior or just plain hostility. I was standing next to bird watcher Dennis Edge, learning tidbits like: the female hawks are larger and the younger hawks don’t have red tails. Sorry about the crappy resolution here, I had to digitally zoom on the footage.
I went out expecting to see a wealth of snow sculptures and snow forts, but this lonely pitiful snowman was all I found. Warning: the appropriate footwear for Tompkins Square Park this morning is ice skates or crampons. All the paths are one slick ice sheet.
Don’t know why they cut this one down, I see no central rot. Branches fell during Sandy, but it did not seem to be posing any current danger. It was in the the southeast corner of Tompkins Square Park.
A view of the architecture of East 10th Street between Avenues A and B, viewed from within Tompkins Square Park. It’s a view only possible in winter with leaves and flowers off the branches. It’s about an 180 degree panorama, the buildings on the left and the right are on the Avenues and facing each other.
The show must go on even in the drizzle. The Mandel & Lydon Trio partially under plastic.
Theater for the New City’s Executive Director, Crystal Field leading the TNC Choir.
Audience waiting for the light.
It didn’t start to rain heavily until after everyone else left.
