KIDS having a ball…..with CHALK!  In the middle of the street on 5th Ave.  Yes, the street was closes for a few hours for NEW YORKERS to stroll….play…..and bop in and out of Museums……all for free!

The Word is out……. on the streets of New York

Soooooooo many WORDS on the streets of NEW YORK………..and I pause to read and photograph as many as I can.  I have 50,000 photos of them in my library….here are just a few of them.

KELLY AND MICHAEL BLOWING BUBBLES………

Michael takes a shot blowing with his machine.  Poor guy.  What ya gotta do to earn that $5 million dollar salary.  Not to worry.  He is worth $35 million from his football days.
