This past weekend was spent wandering around Boro Park, an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, looking for Sukkot(booths). Sukkot is a Jewish holiday that started on Sunday evening. During this holiday, Jewish families spend their time eating, sleeping, and reading the Torah in the Sukkot. This serves as a reminder of their ancestors who lived in Sukkot during their 40 years of travel in the desert after the Exodus from slavery in Egypt.

I'm not Jewish, but I find Sukkot a bit fascinating. It's just unexpected to see these shed like structures all over a neighborhood, in front of a house, on the side of the house, on the balcony, or on the rooftop. The other photos are just things I liked the look of. Also, there are a few pics of the revamped subway stations decorated with artsy glass tiles. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.
