A New York State of Mind
I don’t care if it’s Chinatown or on Riverside
I don’t have any reasons
I left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind
— Billy Joel, a New York State of Mind from the Stranger

There is never enough time to photograph New York City.  Had there not been the remnants of a hurricane bearing down on New York, I might have headed out to the Rockaways or taken the G Line through Brooklyn.  Despite the limitations imposed by the weather and obligations, I did manage to snag some nice odds and ends over the weekend.
