New York is a pretty amazing place to be at this time of year. The holiday lights are going up, Christmas trees are appearing in apartment building lobbies and stores, and the mood on the sidewalks seems energetic and festive.
On the subway, I espied content faces…
As well as some anxious tourists listening for the announcement of their stop.
And, of course, after a weekend of eating, there were others who took advantage of the commute for some much-needed shut-eye.
