On Broadway, in Brooklyn

Towards the Willamsburg Bridge
Photo by myself, around Broadway and Bedford Streets, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

We've been having a spell of warm days but it's supposed to get back to being winter, this week. Or so they say.

The view from Williamsburg toward Manhattan was a quiet one, Sunday. The Williamsburg Bridge, toward the right, will get you over the East River to the Lower East Side.

Broadway is known as a major avenue on the west side in Manhattan, that extends 18 miles north of the city. It's also shorthand for the theatre district, which includes part of Broadway near 42nd Street. Most people don't know that a different street in Brooklyn is also named Broadway. Yes, confusing!

A striking black and white mural of a young girl covered an entire building. I'm not sure if this was art or an advertisement. Mark and I were here for lunch with his mom.

Happy Monday everyone!

After the Marathon, on the Upper West Side

Post marathon, nyc

Dozens of runners crossed the street wrapped in blankets after finishing the marathon, Sunday afternoon. The scene looked a little like soldiers returning home from a battle.

Part of 72nd Street was closed to traffic. This was a popular spot for family and friends to meet up with runners after the race.
