It is that time of year! :-) Although I took this at a time long before the "shopping season" kicked in. In fact I took this a few days after Hurricane Sandy at the Time Warner Center building in Manhattan, it has a shopping mall in it, and is right across the street from the Trump Tower that I shared in another post previously.

I cant tell you how odd it was to be walking around a mall, with power, food and light so available when those things were so hard to come by only a few miles away because of the storm. Manhattan was like a tale of two cities, one where life went on much as it had before and another devastated by the storm, same goes for the region overall.

I hope everyone is well and having a great day!
