Only in New York…part I

This is ‘part I’, because I have a strong hunch there will be more of such posts….

Only in New York, today’s sightings:

I walked through a high school rap off. 

Yes, a gang of high school students looked like they were about to launch at each other, until I realized it was some sort of ‘rap off.’  You know ‘dance offs,’ ‘sing offs,’ so this was their version…

Next,

Furniture store on the side of the road.  Garbage day eve?  Well, if you need shelves, office chairs, tvs, and even the occasional armoire, you may find it while just walking down the street…

 

Ninth Avenue during rush hour looks similar to … hmmm, what to compare it to??… a junkyard?  A whole bunch of cars, not going anywhere, and placed all together, but some at odd angles… 

It’s gridlock, and if you want to cross the street, you will probably end up bobbing and weaving through multiple vehicles…carefully…and chances are you may not find the crosswalk under your feet…

 

If you time your commute to work, and think you’ve got it down after a while, all it may take is an extra stoplight or slightly off-scheduled subway train to put an extra ten minutes on that commute… Missed the subway train?  Well, there may, or may not, be another one close behind…

 

Your commute to work may include being squished in between six complete strangers, four sounding like they are from Germany, two others, and a subway train inside wall.  Rush hour on the 2/3.  The new definition of ‘packed.’

 

One minute you are surrounded by high rises, taxis, smoke, and hustle bustle…the next you are surrounded by maples, pines, leaves, and even a lake.  Welcome to Central Park.  You could forget you are in New York City….well, except for the occasional glimpse of an old apartment building from over the trees…

And here is a Yogi thought for the day!

“One of the best actions we can take, with courage, is to relax.”

Have a relaxing weekend all,

Kate
