This is it friends – 2017 is almost over! It has been adequately bumpy and all kinds of weird and felt, at times, like going two steps back for every step forward but, on a personal level, it’s been a rather good year. So it is only fitting that we bid it adieu with a splash of colour from one of New York City’s most beautifully restored neighbourhoods, the South Sea Port historic district.
Fulton Street is glowing in a ”Sea of Light”, an installation that will run through March 2018.
Wavertree, the great sailing ship, is decorated with its own Christmas tree, as is tradition in maritime countries around the world. Tonight, even the New York Central No. 31 railroad barge pilothouse is bathed in light.
And so is the Titanic Memorial, the lighthouse erected in honour of the lives lost in the sinking of the Titanic.
From the iconic South Sea Port, my warmest wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year!
May the light be with you always!
