The lack of varied photographs is due to the fact that I have been very involved with various political
groups in New York City.  We are trying to get housing laws passed/repealed in Albany.  The landlords
are getting away with too much [Preferential Rent (State Senate Bill S. 6527), Vacancy Decontrol (S. 3482),
Vacancy Bonus (S. 1593), and Major Capital Improvement (S. 4312)].  Affordable apartments in New York City
are becoming fewer and fewer.  More and more people are ending up homeless.  The meetings I attend are often.  
I am usually too exhausted the next day to take photos of interest in the City.  Furthermore, I have not taken
any day trips in November and December.   Hopefully, I will do better in January.  In the meantime, I hope you
enjoyed the different sunrises and sunsets, and other photos I have posted on this page!

December 19th and 20th - Sunrise, Oculus, area around Reflecting Pools and Liberty Park.

December 30th and 31st - More snow.  The last sunrise in Corona, Queens, New York City for 2017.
Shortly after the snow started.
As the day progressed.
State Pavilion, Flushing Meadows Corona Park
Unisphere, Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

December 31st - The moon.  Today's moon is in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more
than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more
illuminated each day until the Full Moon.
The light under moon, above - jet headed
to La Guardia Airport.  Or is it a UFO?
Do you see the UFO?  The double lights under right of moon is just another
jet headed to La Guardia.
