Speaking of the holiday season, one of the pleasures which the New York City Department of Transportation offers is “seasonal streets” when swaths of the public thoroughfare are closed off to automobile traffic for the sole use of pedestrians and bicyclists.   “Seasonal Streets” also provide an opportunity for artists to put up colorful temporary work directly on the surface of the road.

Here is a swath of Nassau Street between John Street and Fulton Street which has been given the seasonal treatment.  Vendors are starting to set up little holiday shops and pavilions (although I worry about how much custom they will find on cold snowy days like today).  Looking south (picture below) you can make out a famous New York taxicab which is advertising an underworld theme show… (?) as it drives beneath some of downtown’s equally enigmatic comic book punching holiday decorations.

Even despite the sloppy weather the scene is quite festive (while still maintaining a special concrete canyon/Blade Runner feel). Thanks DOT! This (almost) makes me want to hang out more in the financial district!

Turkey Hood Ornament?

Thanksgiving time is upon us already! I know this because I spent tonight making a cake for the office potluck instead of writing about turkey virgin birth or whatever.  However, even if I got distracted, I haven’t forgotten these magnificent birds.  Here is a little gallery of turkey ornaments from around the internet (and throughout time) to help you get in the holiday mood.

What could be more American than turkeys in a jeweled car made of corn?

These are pretty, I wonder what they are for…

These guys have a first generation Oldsmobile! What is it with turkeys and cars?

Speaking of which, this looks like another hood ornament.

Oh no! The poor bird! What have they done to you? [surreptitiously licks lips]

This last one seems like a Christmas ornament.  I guess we’ll be there before we know it (and out of the twenty-teens…which is a horrifying thought). I’ll be back to post something before Thanksgiving proper though!  Oh, before you go, you should check out my favorite turkey theme post about turkey breeds from the archives!

Merry Christmas!  I decorated the house up all beautifully with my tree of life and with all sorts of seasonal lights…but then I couldn’t find my digital camera.  I’m afraid you will have to get through Saturnalia/Yule/Christmas with these somewhat blurry images.  I hope Santa brings you what you want (or Hanukkah Harry…or Saturn…or Mithras).  We’ll do some year-end wrap-up next week, but for right now I am going to drink some egg-nog and draw some festive flatfish!  Happy Holidays from Ferrebeekeeper!
