I hope that guy's okay. I've never seen anyone break a window at a local bar or restaurant. Drunken fights and arguments are plenty enough without having to dodge flying shards of door or window glass.
Saw a guy ( maybe a couple guys) break table once, western saloon fight style, The club/venue was called the Saddle Rack.

Which park, Savage? It's a really nice shot! Great combo of the tree, clouds and sky.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! It's very much appreciated.

Kestra, I was standing in the middle of W33rd Street, halfway between 6th & 7th Aves (I ducked out into the street in between traffic signals). I was using my Canon 70D and a 70-300mm Canon lens - though I was only using about half of its zoom capability.

Interestingly enough, the moon wasn't the only company the Empire State Building had on Sunday (also taken on W33rd, but between 5th and 6th Aves, and before the moon had risen above the skyline):
