Noose & Scythe
This ghastly Grim Reaper appeared quite suddenly on State Street on Saturday evening. And I do mean suddenly. He wasn't there when I walked down this street on the way to an ATM two blocks away, but was there when I came back up the hill just a few minutes later.
I'm not sure if the figure - placed by the Justice Building at the Empire State Plaza - was intended as a protest or a prank or a decoration. But it was quite seasonably spooky on a October evening...and gone by early the next morning.
