Animal rights activists gathered across from Gracie Mansion at the corner of East 88th Street and East End Avenue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.  They were shouting to Mayor DeBlasio to keep his promise and ban Carriage Horses in Central Park.  While running for office in 2013, DeBlasio vowed on Day 1 if elected, he would make changes. According to the New York Times there has been no resolution.

DeBlasio was entertaining on this unseasonably warm evening. The protestors took advantage as each guest passed by, to remind the Mayor of his promise.  Parade barriers lined both sides of East End Avenue as the NYC Police and the Mayor’s security detail stood guard at the adjacent entrances of Carl Schurz Park.

Until next time.

Incorporating graphic design with B&W photographs has allowed me to create two distinct lines of notecards.

Now the full assortment is available in the new online shop of 51art stationery.

If you think of sending a note to someone special, consider stopping in and browsing the selection.

Enjoy!

Until next time.

Finding Christmas

In NYC Today on December 18, 2012 at 3:41 am

For as long as I can remember, my family had a tradition of “finding” Christmas.  We would drive around the neighborhood seeking out the beautiful decorations of the season.

Living in New York, I now walk through my neighborhoods to discover beautiful, peaceful moments that get me closer to “finding” Christmas.

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa or a holiday I do not know, the joy in this season is the celebration of light and hope.

Throughout this time of year, I hope you too will “find” your Christmas.

This video was put together with images I have taken over the past few years walking from Central Park to the Upper West Side, down to Washington Square Park, up to Rockefeller Center and then on to Cape Cod.

Brooklyn based musician Derek Daisey provides this beautiful holiday song:  “Can You Help Me Find My Christmas?”  (available on iTunes.)

I wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season!

Until next time.
