Manhattan Transfer

Early autumn. New York City at its best. Cooler, crisp air. In between the crowds of shoppers, business people, tourists: parks, rooftop gardens, vest-pocket gardens.

Saturday evening Sunset in Washington Square Park. The highlight of the fall border of marigolds: thistles.

View from the roof of The New Museum, 235 Broadway between Rivington and Stanton Streets

In the rain today, Paley Park, 3 East 53rd Street

Topiaries in the courtyard of the Palace Hotel, the former Villard Mansion, 455 Madison Avenue

Stop for a moment and smell the mums.
