79th Street, New York City

Not much to say about this picture except that for some reason it is one of my favorites. The location is 79th Street in New York City on a rainy day. You can see some snow that's melting away.
The drivers are anxiously waiting for the pedestrian lights to switch as probably waiting for a few seconds will make them late for some sort of meeting. I am sure if it was legal, New York City would be a real life version of Carmageddon.
The church is the First Baptist Church in New York City. It has been standing there since 1891. George M. Keister designed it. He also designed the popular Apollo Theater. I have never been inside the church so I can't really say whether it's beautiful or not.
