NYC - The Plaza from the Pond in Central Park, Sunday

In the evening the Plaza in NYC turns on lights to illuminate its upper stories, right around sundown. Within minutes the southeast corner of Central Park will descend into inky blackness, but for a few precious moments one can see it like this. On Sunday night the buildings are a bit less lit than usual, giving a softer look to the scene.
