★★★★ Squiggles of light lay on the grass atop a garage roof on West End Avenue. A small dog in a down coat inspected the sidewalk under a scaffold. Down on Lafayette, a deliveryman bicycled uptown with a smily-face bag of food; an oval of fog clung to the inside of his plexiglas face shield. By afternoon, the sun was almost warm, silvering the twigs in the trees. People could break stride to peer into a storefront. At sunset, a few colored clouds were scattered tastefully around the dome—a pink one here; a purple one there; some white ones, even, as the blue went to indigo.
