TINY STORES in Manhattan

Some are three feet wide……others four and some are five!

But they offer things New Yorkers need…..

CLICK ONE to see now tiny it is!

OCULUS Shopping Mall at the World Trade Center

The OCULUS………a new shopping mall in the Wall Street Area………..over 100 stores and restaurants……..global brands…….350,000 square feet in the World Trade Center……all designed by Santiago Calatrava.

The white marble floor looks like a gigantic ice skatimg rink.

What I enjoyed the most………JOE and the JUICE up on the mezzanine.

 

 

PIG-OUT day in MANHATTAN

IT was a fun day.  Tastings were $5 and $7……..I did the PIG thing.  For $100 VIP PASS you could taste it all.  I did NOT pig out!

But I did go for the PIG HEAD.…..took me back to my childhood days on the farm in Clarkesville Georgia.

The PIG OUT took place in Madison Square Park on 23rd street.

THOMAS JEFFERSON vs. TRUMP

This is a bronze plaque just around the corner from Trump Tower.

DONALD has probably stepped on it hundreds of times!

GARBAGE…………we have a lot of it in NEW YORK

Thousands of tons of trash are on the sidewalks of NY every day.

Where else can we put it??

We ship it to New Jersey………..what do they do with it??

Make artificial mountains!

For the HOMELESS MOTHERS…….Mother’s Day is not so happy

There are over 60,000 homeless people in New York City………..many of them are mothers with no family to take care of them.  It is tragic to see them sleeping on the streets and rummaging through garbage cans for a meal.

Whatever happened to her mother??
