Winter Walk Photos

These photos were taken on walks yeterday (Friday) afternoon and this (Saturday) morning. The first was taken from Cadman Plaza East, looking west across Cadman Plaza Park, with lower Manhattan in the background. More photos and text follow the jump.

Snowboarding on the slope between Washington Street and the Brooklyn Bridge on-ramp. The Manhattan Bridge is in the background.

    The Pier Six photo is lovely. I’m glad you’re taking these walks, Claude, so I feel less guilty about staying at home and keeping warm.
