NYC…. The Vendors…

July 19, 2014

This a continuing pictorial post on our visit to New York City recently.  One of the things that got my attention was the number of vendors on the streets selling almost everything. Here are some pictures. Click on any picture to bring up a larger gallery view.

 

 

NYC… Architecture….

July 12, 2014

One of the things that amazed me about my recent three day visit to New York City was the architecture. I have always been fascinated by the myriad of building in this country and NYC is probably the best of the best.  I won’t bore you with more words here.  Instead this post is almost all about the pictures.

NYC… People…

July 5, 2014

This is a continuation from last Saturday of my recent visit to New York City.  As I previously mentioned the reason for the trip was to fulfill a bucket list item for my wife.  This Post is about the people..

Here is a little about what Wikipedia says about the city:

New York County is the most densely populated county in the United States, more dense than any individual American city.It is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a Census-estimated 2013 population of 1,626,159  living in a land area of 22.96 square miles

For an old Hoosier farm boy that is a lot of people and I think I rubbed elbows with most of them while I was there. :)  I think most of them there were in Time Square on the Saturday night we were there. Everywhere you go there are crowds of people. That is except for the Museum for the City of New York. There weren’t more than a hundred or so in that entire building.  I guess New Yorker aren’t very interested in their history (ha).

One thing I learned from the trip is that I, at least now, have a low tolerance for crowded places. Another thing I learned is that there is no such rule about keeping right as you walk down a sidewalk. It seems to be every person for themselves.

Enough of this talk, let’s get some picture of the people I encountered on our visit.  As usual click on any picture to bring up the expanded gallery:
