Photographer's Note

Looking south on Fifth Avenue on a chilly winter day, you might see a view like this.

The sun was shining, and people were out sightseeing and shopping. In the top, left corner is the iconic Unicef Snowflake that rises above Fifth Avenue and 57th Street every holiday season. It was first displayed in 1984, and contains 16,000 crystal prisms. It is 28 feet (8.5 meters) tall, and 23 feet (7 meters) wide.

There is a slight haze in the sky, but that’s not from the weather, it’s from another interesting New York City sight: steam chimneys. I’ll explain a little more about that in the WS.

Two WS photos show a close-up of the snowflake, and a view of the mysterious steam chimney.
