My Fire Escape

This is the view I woke up to yesterday morning outside my bedroom window. What are you seeing is the fire escape from my apartment to the street down below. You can also see the fire escape for the building across the street (43rd Avenue) from me.

After a late lunch, I went to Central Park and took over 100 photos there but this initial shot taken first thing in the morning is the one I like best. I will post the Central Park photos (maybe) later this week.

So what did you have for lunch yesterday?

You could use a pair skis to go down...

je suis d'accord avec Vogon. Une belle promenade dans NYC avec des skis de fond, cela doit être grandiose
I agree with Vogon. A nice promenade in NYC with cross-country skiings, it must be grandiose

I like the perspective ffrom the wheel of the car in the bottom right corner of the photo.

The fire escape provides one of the best ways to measure the true accumulation of snowfall because, unlike the ground or pavement, the metal of the fire escape will not have retained any warmth that would melt the initial snowfall.

Regards from Spain.

This is amazing!!! I like this photo very much. But I can't wait to see a white Central Park!
Yesterday we had pasta al ragù with spezzatino (cubes of meat). Yummy!

I had one slice of swiss cheese for lunch! I felt like Old Mother Hubbard whose cupboards (fridge) was bare:)

This is great Ming. I can't wait to see your others from the park too.
Yesterday I had a blueberry waffle for lunch.

I am enjoying your blog very much! I had 2 spring rolls and one egg roll made by the deli owner's wife at the Korean deli down the block from my office.

Then later I had a dark chocolate attack and ate a dark chocolate Easter bunny and a couple of cookies.

I do not miss New York when it snows. It is initially beautiful then everything turns to slush.

Can't wait to see the pics from the park.

Good grief. 'Tis beautiful, but slippery. I had the same thought as Vogon Poet...you could ski down those steps...

I did a detour to Riverside Park before heading into the office .. and I had toasted sourdough bread w/hummus, eggplant, mozzerella, red leaf lettuce and tomato with a side of red grapes and a bottle of room temp water

Sadly, I was in a hurry and ran into Mickey D's - Golden Arches- for a fast lunch.

Gorgeous photo....more, please of Central Park- that is, if you can even get there in this weather.

Cool pic! That gives a good idea of the quantity of snow we've head.

Love your blog and enjoy your photography. What floor do you live on?

Haha, I was about to say 'I hope there isn't a fire, that'd be awfully dangerous', but then again I don't think snow would hold up against fire!!! =P

Your view is better than mine.

We had sushi at Yama for lunch.
