MACY’S Thanksgiving Day Parade • 2017

On the roof of the DAKOTA APARTMENTS………..NYC sniper riflemen…..trained to shoot terrorists…….at the ready………as MACY’S Thanksgiving Day Parade passes by.


CLICK ON:

 Snoopy.……..he has been aloft in 40 parades………..and he is still my fave.

And SANTA always waves to the nearly four million people lining the streets………all hoping he will climb down their chimneys on December 25th.

New Yorkers and their cycles………

You gotta be crazy to bop around NYC on a moped or a motorcycle. 88,000 injured last year…..but only 1,200 deaths.  ONLY!

 

This cute moped……driven by a cute guy………having fun!

TORN PAPER GRAFFITI on NY Streets

GRAFITTI is always fascinating…………but….is it an act of vandalism!  ?????

Tag

Tag is the most basic and the most prevalent form of graffiti. It is usually written with marker or spray paint and in one color, which is sharply contrasted with its background. Tag is a stylized personal signature and contains graffiti writer’s name, also known as a moniker. Graffiti writers often tag their pieces, following the practice of traditional artists who sign their artwork. Since the beginning of tagging in the mid twentieth century, individual graffiti scenes have developed very different forms of tagging that are unique to specific regions. The word ‘tag’ is also very widely used as a verb meaning ‘to sign’, even in other, non-graffiti related types of occasions.

a CLOUDY SUNSET over Manhattan

The view from my terrace tonight was spectacular………… pinks……oranges……..purples…… with shards of “light” peeking thru.

Living  high in the sky has its rewards.
