Stroll down Seventh Avenue

May 23, 2013


We’ve been having a taste of summer the last couple of days. Temperatures have been in the mid-80’s and the humidity has been high. Thanks, but we’ll take more spring, please.

I’m used to not thinking about Times Square. Anyone who has been in NYC for a while remembers when the area was not known for Lion Kings, family entertainment, and M&M’s by the pound.

How much do you love NY today?

July 24, 2012

It’s hot and humid, so I’d have to say my love for NY is worth about $2.75, but I did get a seat on the subway this AM, so let’s up that by a quarter to $3.00. Is your love priceless today? Are you in love with the city or feeling so-so about it?

Are we there yet?

March 26, 2012

Crossroads of the world… the fun and everything else must be nearby, yet these young people look so tentative, as if the Times Square they wandered into was not at all what they expected.

Ask nice

The cops are part of the scenery in Times Square. When they are not chasing criminals and keeping the peace, police officers will gladly pose for a picture.

Hanging out in Times Square

March 7, 2012

Times Square: As good a place as any in NYC to have a moment of solitude. It just takes a little practice. With warmer weather, this area will be swarming with people day and night. If you like crowds, or being alone in a crowd, head on over.

Waiting at the parking garage

You stand there, wait and wait some more. And when you finally get your car, the bill is always twice what you’d thought it was going to be and the rear-view mirror is pointing in the wrong direction.

Good riddance

December 31, 2011

Earlier this week was Good Riddance Day. Participants wrote down a bad memory from the past year and then it was put through a paper shredder. Out with the old! I wish it were that simple, but some positive thinking never hurts. Have fun tonight, everyone!

Pre-pre-holiday shopping

November 10, 2011

Holiday shopping is upon us – I hear bells ringing everywhere I go, and Santa’s probably not far behind. But I’m getting the feeling people are shopping for themselves at the moment. The spirit of giving may kick in later on, when there’s a chill in the air.

Taxi pile-up

October 24, 2011

The question comes up: what should you do if you’re in a cab that has a minor accident or fender bender because your driver is a full-on Mr. Magoo-bad driver (& thankfully no one was hurt)? Slip out the back door! Don’t get involved in the yelling, because there will be raised voices, and police cars. Pay the fare if you feel obligated, but don’t tip for this misadventure, and don’t wait around for the rest of the ride because the cabbie probably left the meter running!
