Purple Rain

I’d say there’s less than .5% of NY residents that could afford a multi-head shower room but should I ever become one wealthy enough to throw money at this idea, I’d disco the hell out of it with RainSky waterfalls, 270 degree mirrors (you need the LED shower doors to remember which direction to exit) and LED changing shower heads (complete with remote, so the voyeur can change the mood for the shower participants at will). Showering partner is on your own.

A powdery snow blankets the “Merchant Princes” of NYC

Out come the Timberlands. It’s the first snow day in NY. Leaving early in the morning, I took a tour around the Village, Time Square and Bryant Park in the snow. It’s supposed to drop over a foot and that seems to be an underestimate. I haven’t seen snow like this in the city ever and can only imagine powder that’s dropping in the mountains upstate and in Vermont. If there ever were a time I’d want to board on the east coast, now would be it.

I took this shot in Bryant Park of the Reading Library. At the head of the library is a statue of William Earle Dodge considered at one time to be a Merchant Prince of Wall Street. William was a noted abolitionist, Native American rights activist, congressman, founding member of the YMCA, mining baron. A considerable resume for a NY Republican of the times; despite his Civil War profiteering (southerners labeled him a carpetbagger) but deserving of the bronze in the park honoring his support of the Native Americans, lobbying for the prosecution of the U.S. cavalry commanders who massacred Blackfeet Indians in Montana and campaigning for the creation of what would be come the Department of Interior.
