Bat, man

Today's commute was a little more interesting than usual. Just before we pulled into Penn Station, a small, terrified bat appeared in our car, flitting back and forth.

The bat repeatedly flew up and down the length of the car, causing startled commuters to duck. The bat -- which appeared to be more freaked out than the commuters -- vanished just before the train pulled up to the platform.

The Empire State Building on a gorgeous spring day

Sometimes the light and the subject are so beautiful, you can't resist taking a picture. This was one of those days.

Is that it?

Spotted this while walking around far western Soho in Manhattan yesterday. It makes you think. And think again. Artists ...

First vblog

This is a bit of video I shot in the subway station near my office. It's my first video posting using Blogger. Hope it's not TOO awful.

Rats ...

On my train, I often see egrets, ducks or Canadian geese in the waters of the Meadowlands between Newark and Weehawken, N.J.

This evening, I saw what I'm pretty sure was a rat swimming in a (probably) polluted bit of water near the tracks.

I was initially surprised, then realized it was more surprising that I had not spotted a rat in the 2 years and three months I've been riding the rails from New Providence, NJ, to New York.
