Upper West Side, 86th Street Between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues

Last Wednesday, my day off, I had therapy (psycho) early, then an MRA, with a 2 hour gap between. My head got a lot of attention that day. But I'm perfectly fine! Really. Anyway, the point being that I used the time to take a walk from my therapist's office on West 86th Street, up Columbus Ave to 97th Street and back down to 96th Street and the subway.

It was fairly cold, upper 40s, and bright sunshine. The first time I've had to deal with gloves while photographing. I admit to being apprehensive about cold weather ahead, being fairly weather wimpy.

So this photograph is across the street and down the block from my therapist's office. Not a memorable photograph, but when I look at it, I get a real sense of place and what that day was like. So I guess I'm doing it for me, not you. You can skip this one. Next one's for you.

See map.

Nostalgic for Old Brooklyn said...

I was about to skip this one, as you suggested, when I flashed on that bit o' pink. You have resurrected the exact color of a new spaldeen ball (I know, I know: By now everyone is tired of all those nostalgic-Brooklyn references to spaldeens/Spauldings, but, well, too bad, because that was the exact pink of the spaldeens of the 1950s).
