The crew at the Tree Riders stand on Second Avenue at 10th Street put the finishing touches on Spike this morning...
It's cool to take a pic of Spike, but please don't pee on him. (I'm talking to your dog.)
Speaking of trees, as of 8:12 a.m., there were 16 left here for sale six days before Christmas. I asked if they brought in fewer trees this year. No, they actually had more this year... the Tree Rider on duty chalked it up to fewer stands around the area this year.

To be honest, the professionalism and craftsmanship of the now-defunct 5-foot snow penis in Tompkins Square Park took the spotlight away from some of the other more family-friendly snow creations that arrived after the blizzard... here are some of those snowpeople via Bobby Williams...

Feel free to leave your blistering critiques of the children's work in the comments!

How do you explain this to the children?
