New York is for... everyone
I love the place. It's not just the endless familiar sites - anyone not heard of Broadway, Central Park, Greenwich Village, Times Square, The Empire State Building, Ellis Island, Harlem, and on and on...?
It's more the energy of the place. Crowded, everyone walking or taking the subway, towering buildings, movement and noise. And then a little closer you find people who talk to you, sometimes really interesting characters, sometimes just chatty, sometimes just friendly.
The arts? Best available. We did a Broadway play by Noel Coward, Blythe Spirit, The Met, The Guggenheim and more.
Food? Oh my God. Just browsing in Zabar's is enough reason to visit NY.
Architecture? Even a Lower Eastside tenement is a gem.
Here are a few snaps.

Your lighten-up item for the day...
As performance art, it's just plain fun and it has Julie Andrews's voice, which is a story in itself. Oh Julie!
Have a look and see what you think. (Thanks for this Michael R.)
