While we were in New York City for Steffie’s birthday party, I had a little time to remind myself why “The City” is different from everywhere else.
At the Clearview Theater on West 23rd Street in Chelsea, on a Tuesday evening, all four showings of “Sex and the City” were sold out.
The guy in the first photo was part of the nearby throng.
Living and working in the city deprives you of some of the softer things found everywhere else, like trees. OK, there are some ‘city trees’ growing in strategically placed holes in the concrete. They don’t count.
The palm tree in the second shot was in an upper story window. I’m afraid there wasn’t enough light for anything but this grainy crop.
Chelsea is a growing residential neighborhood, with all the usual neighborhood accouterments, including dogs! Helaine noted many of them were full size pups and not exactly efficiency apartment friendly.
Even with scores of dogs around, I saw no poop on West 23rd. There was, however, a converted gumball machine.
