Some pics from the NYC Winter Lantern Festival at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center in Staten Island, New York City
.
The @nycwinterlantern festival, a brand-new attraction, features larger-than-life hand-painted sculptures and lanterns that light up after dark. Every piece is custom designed, hand sculpted with steel boning, overlaid with silk and then hand painted by a company in China.
.
It runs from 5 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and from 5 to 11 p.m on Fridays and Saturdays now through Jan. 6

Built with ginger “bricks” and topped with a “frosting” covered roof, this year’s gingerbread house features a peppermint-themed decor. It will be on display at the park through December 19.

And a peek at the Empire State Building. Tonight it will continue to glow in blue & white with a candle in the mast for the last night of #Chanukah⁠

Taken on Dec 1 which was World AIDS Day, this was probably why the NYSE was lit in red that night.

I like my human experience served up with a little silence and restraint. Silence makes experience go further and, when it does die, gives it that dignity common to a thing one had touched and not ravished.

You know that old saying about home being where the heart is? I don’t think that refers to your own. It’s the hearts of other people, the ones you love, that makes a home.
