NYC street fairs are all the same. Same food, same junky jewelry for sale. The same tube socks you didn’t buy last time you went to a street fair! People walk around like they don’t care; they’ll never run into anyone they know. This guy is sporting giveaway sunglasses, thinks he’s cool. She seems to be with him but is looking around.
Cat art is hot, have you heard? Be sure to get over to White Columns before July 28. “Cats in Residence” is a benefit, with real felines, too. It will make you smile – and don’t forget to put a dollar or two in the kitty.
Lady Liberty is open again after Hurricane Sandy, as of the 4th of July. Rather than show the statue, I’ll show you the ferry that leaves from the battery in lower Manhattan.

People will wait half an hour for better-than-average Mexican fast-food in Manhattan. The guys who carry the signs advertising bike rentals might be in there, too, but I’d bet they’re noshing at a food cart down the street. Service is faster and the food is cheaper. (P.S. McDonald’s hasn’t been an investor in Chipotle for years, BTW.)
