This is shot facing East, between 7:00 and 7:30 am, so the morning sun is behind these buildings. The speckled light you see is reflected off of the windows of the buildings across the street and bounces back to hit these buildings. You can see parts of the other buildings in some of the windows above, so there are two sets of reflecting windows at play here. Sometimes, when the angles of the sun and the buildings are just right, you can get a back-and-forth speckled effect on both sides of the street, but that wasn’t at happening here. This is the first image published from my photo walk in TriBeCa on Sunday.
