Some balmy weather this week got me out and about shooting photos. In a few days it will officially be Winter, then ice and snow. McAllister and Reinauer were out in force Monday on the KVK, all in all a fairly busy afternoon.

The Staten Island Advance: Rich Marin, president and CEO of New York Wheel LLC, said work is underway. “Our site is changing now,” he said.

The New York Wheel, a planned 630-foot observation wheel to be built with 36 capsules, holding 40 passengers each and moving for 38 minutes, is expected to open in early 2017.
