Photographer's Note

Here is another slice of NYC life from the Times Square.

NYPD, NY Cab, Neon lights and the Steam rising from the stack. These steam stacks are omnipresent in the Manhattan. In case you are wondering where this steam comes from, here is my brief explanation that I am not hundred percent sure about being correct:

Steam is used as an energy in Manhattan to keep the offices and other buildings from being frozen. Steam us rushed through an array of underground network of pipes; Once in a while there are some leaks in the pipes, and that is when you get to see the white stuff billowing up through the (hu)man hole covers and grates. For more details please check the Con Edison, who happens to be steam energy providers of the Big Apple.

PS: I can't remember where was this intersection, so there will be no map view for this photo unless someone can point it out.
Pls see the WS for a shot of steam billowing up from another place in NYC.

Speical thanks to Ricardo for telling me where this photo was taken. I was able to use that information for the map view.
I am not sure about the accuracy of the co-ordinates I used for the map view
