New York Photos

The commentary in this post is by Leon Hale. The photos are mine.

When I'm at home and think of New York City, this is the picture I visualize most often. It was shot in the lower end of Central Park, through the trees to the high-rises on the street called Central Park South.

Construction workers on the Upper East Side in Manhattan gather around a street vendor for their lunch. Taco and fajita time.

Vehicular traffic is no longer allowed in Times Square and on weekends the street is invaded by hordes of visitors. We heard half a dozen different languages spoken in this crowd.

They celebrated Bastille Day on Sunday with a street fair and three blocks of French food.

A little touch of the country in New York -- a tomato plant growing on the sidewalk on East 13th St.

Lovely photos and commentary - New York seems so popular on blogs at present - and everyone I read makes me wish I had stayed longer in New York when I was there in May.

Beautiful photographs, especially the one in Central Park. Wonderful place to visit but I don't think I could live with so many people so close together. The tomato plant is like a cry from someone wanting more green, more space, a yard of their own...and fresh vegetables.

Enjoy the experience and the visit with your son and wife and bring a little bit of the "cool" back with you. Blessings.

Today we tromped to the nearest CVS and back and it felt HOT at 82 degrees. Picture that! (Of course, if we'd been in Texas, we would have glided there in AC.)
