First, a few shots from the Botanical Garden.
A plant tricked into budding by the warm December.
The only flower blooming is on this man’s head.
The warmth of winter.
Meanwhile, back on Main Street… Surprise!
For the Lunar New Year, which is a New York City school holiday for the first time this year.
The fish in the background are supposed to give luck. Fish is traditionally served for Chinese New Year.
It helps to be tall on these streets.
