Times Square is always a hoot.  Thousands of TOURISTS……..[lots of pick-pockets]……..costumed Disney characters……….Broadway Shows……….and zillions of restaurants.  The famous Knickerbocker Hotel was just renovated…….with rooms starting at $550.

CLICK ON THE HORSE…….

You must visit the reborn Knickerbocker Hotel.……..and overnight there if you can spend some big bucks.

LUNCH at the HARD ROCK CAFE

With Spring in the air………time for a stroll through Times Square……….part circus,  part zoo……..but the tourists LOVE it and so do I.  A friend of mine is one of the chefs at the HARD ROCK CAFE………so it was time for a burger.

Oh, SANDY……you made so much misery !

OH, SANDY !!!

This photo was sent to me from a guy in Germany.  I did NOT snap this.

Sandy has turned into the GRIM REAPER.

My terrace that was……and a garden that is no more.

Sandy’s wind and rain wiped out my views of the city.  Ferocious!

SAND BAGS……..anchoring my tables.

 Sandy did her number !!  MY TABLE!

ITALIAN POT………….over she goes.

She was supposed to protect my terrace…….

Musical chairs……….

Even my pumpkin is pissed.

During the storm….our superintendent,  Mahir,   had go out in the winds and secure the plastic covering my neighbor, Sally”s, greenhouse.  It was a nightmare!

The “Great Blue Heron’s” new home…….my living room.

My neighbor has 8 of these trees on his terrace……….blew over but not down to the street.

157 West 57th street………..90 stories up…..the crane dangles.

I snapped this from my terrace during the hurricane.

In front of my building……….

West 71st street………so sad to loose trees.

 Over on Broadway……..one lone truck trying to do a clean-up.
