Glass mosaic murals in the NYC Subway at Times Square/42nd Street
The pair of mosaics "The Return of Spring" and "The Onset of Winter" depict various New York City street scenes and were paintings translated to mosaics by Artistic Mosaics Travisanutto of Italy. They were first unveiled to the public at the Gallery of Modern Art in Udine, Italy, in 1999 and 2003 respectively. "The Return of Spring" depicts construction workers and other city dwellers in front of a rendering of an original IRT subway kiosk. The scene depicted in "The Onset of Winter" is a crowd (some with faces of the artist's friends) watching a film crew record a scene of a woman entering the subway, as the first snowflakes of winter come down on the background New York skyline.

A rather tattered looking cat came to say hello on our visit to the farm. A barn cat called Spider!
So we were informed by the horse handler, taking the horses out to pasture.

Grand Central reminds me of a beehive - there's so many levels and a great buzz of activity.
It is a beautiful building...the flag is huge, looking upwards.
Tom Otterness has created lots of these subway characters and I had fun looking out for them.
Thanks for joining me again ... Have a great day!

Chelsea Market (75 9th Ave) is a cool kind of market, though it wasn't so much the stores inside it that I wanted to see. The place is cool because you can get a real feel for the old warehousing and workplaces that existed here in the past as part of the Meatpacking district.
I loved the exposed brick and huge industrial pipes on view...
You can watch your daily bread being baked...
....and a couple of murals...
Glad you could stop by!

We started our vacation in NYC and wanted to see different parts of the city from the High Line. Interesting to find unusual art installations along the way as well as the views.
It was a blisteringly hot bright day...
Here's a condensed few snapshots along the way...
Above is a huge mural called 'The Floaters" by Henry Taylor at 22nd Street.
Below another mural I spotted some way away through the old brick buildings, but no details available.
The Meat Packing district...
One of most unusual sculptures along the way...
This was a new art piece being installed...
Another mural I spotted across the buildings...
We left the High Line at Chelsea Market...more tomorrow...
Thanks for your visit!
