Union Square, March 24th, 201

Do not be deceived by the bright sunshine... For though the sun was splitting the sidewalks of the city in recent days, this morning (for example) around 9am, it was still below freezing in Union Square.

The cold did not dissuade the vendors and shoppers of the Union Square green market... Yet Spring has been a long time in coming this year -- if memory is correct, by this time in late March on previous years, bitter, subzero temperatures had succumbed to the ever-warming sun.

Though it was chilly enough for my fingers to hurt while taking these few shots, the far greater endurance was that of the vendors who were still there until after sunset that evening.
