Un tribunal fédéral de #Manhattan accuse un fonctionnaire de #NewDelhi d’avoir recruté un homme de main afin d’éliminer la cible. L’acte d’accusation met aussi en avant une action coordonnée avec le meurtre d’un autre militant sikh, en septembre, au #Canada.

So, I was getting out of the train station near Rockefeller Center without realizing that it was the tree lighting today! Mobbed with people I escaped south to walk east to Grand Central and was greeted with this beautiful view down Fifth Ave! #nyc #manhattan #street #steetphotography #sunset #sky #photography #sonycamera #sonya7rv #sony35mm14gm #adobelightroom

Autumn Reflections, Central Park. © Copyright 2023 G Dan Mitchell.
The Manhattan skyline is reflected in the water of The Lake on a hazy autumn day, Central Park.
We arrived in New York City late in the day, too late to do much other than meet up with family, get a bite to eat, and head back to the hotel. We stayed on the Upper West Side, more or less to the west of the Natural History Museum, and thus a short walk from Central Park. So the next morning — after coffee, of course! — we headed that way to walk and do a bit of photography. We were happy to see that there were still many trees with autumn foliage...continued: https://gdanmitchell.com/2023/11/28/autumn-reflections-central-park/

A person sits on the Hernshead outcropping among fall colors, Central Park, Manhattan.
We were in New York City for a few days before Thanksgiving. (We left early to avoid the holiday rush.) Our two sons and daughters-in-law live and work there, and they have told us for years to come during spring and autumn instead of our usual winter and summer visits. They are right. — Manhattan was full of lovely fall colors, not just here in the “wilds” of Central Park,” but even along busy streets and avenues. This photograph juxtaposes one of the park’s rocky outcroppings, “The Lake,” autumn trees, and a bit of the Manhattan skyline...continues: https://gdanmitchell.com/2023/11/26/hernshead-autumn/
If people are wondering what the background image is I always use. It's a photo I made during Hurricane Sandy on October 29th 2012, at the crossing of 8th Avenue and West 42nd Street, looking east-southeast, on Manhattan, New York City.
I was for my journalism study in the US, because of the presidential elections. We first stayed for a few days in New York and than Sandy hit the city hard (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_Hurricane_Sandy_in_New_York). This was much more interesting than the boring presidential elections (second term Obama). So we went into Hurricane Sandy to make stories and photo's. This photo has a dystopian vibe and it reminds me of how fragile our so called civilization is. I think it's symbolic for the times we live in. That's why I use this image for a long time now.
P.S. I told the story before a few years ago, but now more comprehensive.
History of New York’s Evacuation Day
A detailed history of New York City’s Evacuation Day, a former holiday that landed on November 25 and was second only to Independence Day in NYC’s patriotic pantheon.
Installing #asphaltArt on 103rd on the #upperWestSide of #manhattan has brought out an incredible reaction. Much negativity. Incredible #carbrain. Last night's negative comment from someone who remembers trolleys in #redHook: too expensive. Countered saying it wasn't expensive and what is expensive is the scheduled repaving of streets whether they need it or not.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Daily writing prompt
There is a short, obvious answer to this question. There is also the day dream fantasy answer. I’ll give you both and maybe give a photo or two.
Home is where my wife, Jen is. Where ever she is, that is where I want to live. Right now that is a little ranch house in North Eastern Massachusetts, just a stone’s throw away from the New Hampshire state line.
That’s the honest, real answer. I want to be where she is. Now for the daydream fantasy answer. There are a lot of options. I sort of see myself as a city guy when I fantasize about moving to a new place. I would probably prefer to live in the suburbs close to a big city, but for discussion’s sake let’s say we’re moving to the city itself.
First on the list is San Diego. I went there for the first time on our honeymoon and fell in love with the place. We’ve been back a few times and each time we’ve gone it’s gotten harder and harder to leave.
The second daydream choice would probably be Manhattan. This is conflicting to me given that I am a Boston sports fan and absolutely loath all New York teams. It would be hard to live in enemy (Yankees) territory, but I think I could manage it.
The dark horse candidate comes from our honeymoon again. We visited a bunch of places on our honeymoon. One destination was Washington, DC. While we were there we explored Maryland a little and spent a little time in Annapolis. That is a city I think I could live in.
As far as the United States is concerned let’s just say that I am a New England guy first and foremost. I could live in the mountains of New Hampshire, the coast of Maine, the lake in Vermont, the Southern cost of Rhode Island, and… well… Connecticut… not so much. If I could pick anywhere in New England though, it would absolutely be Boston.
What about places outside of the US? As we watch in horror as fascism rises here, I often find myself wondering if the time to leave has arrived. I would need to go someplace where they speak English. Canada is cold so I probably would not want to go there, even though Toronto is beautiful.
Montreal is pretty wonderful too, but that has the same negative that New York has. Living among the enemy (Montreal Canadians fans) and all.
England would be a decent choice too, but Brexit makes me think that it wouldn’t be different enough from the US as far as the political climate is concerned. Scotland and Ireland would be better. Glasgow or Dublin maybe? I’ve never been so no pictures. Australia would be another option, but I really don’t know much about that country beyond the Monty Python Philosophers sktech.
So there you have it. The correct answer to where would I live is where ever Jen lives. The fantasy answers are San Diego, Manhattan, Annapolis, and maybe some English speaking place outside of the US.

Electric air taxis could be lifting passengers from #JFK airport to #Manhattan by 2025: on quiet, emissions-free journeys taking around 7 minutes. #Joby Aviation says the craft can recharge in 5 minutes & envisions the service will work like a rideshare app.
#onthisday in 2001, American Airlines Flight 587 crashed on the #Rockaway peninsula moments after taking off from #JFK airport, killing 265 people. Crew error caused the #tragedy. I was in #manhattan on the day. Coming on the heels of #september11, the island was locked down for a short time. It was the scariest moment I’ve ever experienced in #newyorkcity. #nyc #otd #history #histodons #queens https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Airlines_Flight_587

Downloaded #Manhattan #HenryHudsonParkway #HHP data and filtered it for 2023 and sorted it by crash date. There are 3 lines for my 24 precinct. One one Serious injuries 0, Non-serious 2, death 1. Does that mean death is non-serious or that 3 were involved or that a serious injury is one where the person did not die?

@thomasfuchs these oligarch mofos fooling nerd bros and Joe 6-pack too posing as macho role models, is like the biggest bs heist in modern times. Same with #maga. #trump lived in a gold plated penthouse in #manhattan. It’s a true wonder rural and everyday working folk buy it. They’re buying an effin mirage. #elonmusk

If you go to any street festival type thing in #Manhattan, go to the cash only food vendors. The food is probably better than most and the lines are usually shorter.

How did I miss Joseph #Rotblat?
"The Strangest Dream" is a freely available film about the story of this remarkable human:
One of the very few Nobel Peace Price winners who deserve it.
#NY Congressman in #NYC 13 is #AdrianoEspaillat
Apparently, he is anti- #PublicTransit (the car diet, #bike friendly plan) in #TheBronx along #FordhamRoad , which is called 207 Street in #Inwood #Manhattan (And thus #Espaillat is against #ClimateChange solutions … namely, reducing car dependency of the wealthy who transit through #EnvironmentalJustice communities.)
I’ll be on the phone tomorrow:
