CHELSEA………Saturday Afternoon

This gallery contains 26 photos.

FIRST SIGN OF SPRING today in Central Park

NEW YORK CITY finally started to thaw out……at least for a day.  Central Park was the place to be.  Everyone was basking in the sun……..kids having fun…….teens climbing trees and rollerbladers chasing the puck.

And more than just a few dogs were sniffing the smells of Spring!

CLICK ON:  A group of singers……..killing a Beatle’s Song!  OUCH!!!

SUPER BOWL in Times Square

The SUPER BOWL madness has gripped Manhattan. I tried on a Broncos Uniform………..sans helmet.  DUH!.

BROADWAY from Macy’s  34th street all the way to 47th street……….is a PARTY!  Big time!  The biggest hit is the Toboggan Run.  Did I try it?  Oh, my aching back.  The first guys down the run yesterday were New York’s finest…….the FIREMAN.  So bold.  So butch!

New Yorkers and one million tourists are jamming on Super Bowl Boulevard.

REX RYAN was in an ice cream truck……what did he say to me?  “do you want sprinkles”?  I said……….”do you have any Fairy Dust”?

TIFFANY & CO. Winter WINDOWS

TIFFANY & CO on Fifth Avenue was blessedly calm today.  Most of the three million holiday tourists have gone home…………New Yorkers have reclaimed their town.

The windows were charming.  Brownstones, limestones row houses and their water towers……all painted WHITE.  I love miniatures so the windows were especially interesting tome.  The JEWELS were secondary………..[valued around ONE MILLION].  I wonder if they remove them from the windows at night.

 

 

 

SUMMER in the SUBWAY……..Wild and HOT!

New York SUBWAYS in the summer……..you could die of  heat down there.

But nearly SIX MILLION ride them each day.  Thats over a BILLION and a HALF riders each year.

You’ll smell a lot of  SWEAT and see [or shed] a few TEARS.  Some MUSICIANS. A few RATS……lots of TRASH………a bit of ART and lots of screaming BRATS [just turn up your IPOD!]

 

Those who can’t take the heat………….take the bus………..and miss all the fun!

WILD THINGS on the streets of NY
