Ok let’s face; I did not walk from Manhattan to Connecticut, I took the train and drove my car. But normally I take the subway from 17th Union Square to Grand Central. Tonight I walked instead. I forgot how much I enjoy walking and taking pictures in Madison Square Park.
Entering the park:
An electrifying sculpture:
The Shake Shack:
A favorite building:
Grand Central Station:
Stamford, a storm drain in an interesting light:
The sculptures constructed from steel beams has been removed, and a new installation has been put in it's place. Here are some pictures of the two 'tower walls' finished in the last week or so.
I haven't been particularly fond of these metal sculptures that were installed in Madison Square Park this year, but I've been warming up to this one in the center of the fountain at the north end of the park. The others still remind me of the wreckage of the twin towers... I wonder if that was the artist's intent.
Yet another picture of one of my favorite buildings.

This is my favorite part of my morning commute; walking through Madison Square Park. It's getting nicer now that it is warming up, and this was a beautiful morning.
