traffic fills 8th Avenue in Manhattan, NYC


Ladies and gentlemen, I give you an everyday look at an afternoon on 8th Avenue in Manhattan. Weather subject to change, of course...

*shudder* I think I'll take a cab rather than try to drive in that mess.

Mike said...

I really love NYC...I'd imagine that I'd change my mind after living there though.

otilius said...

not so bad, though, if you want to take pictures. ;] you get lots of time, well, more time than normal...true, I've become indifferent to yelling.

Mrs. Mecomber said...

And THAT, my dear Otilius, is why I moved to Upstate. :D Thanks for the reminder.

P.S. You think you could snap a photo of Alex Hamilton's gravesite sometime? :D

Killing me.

Walked streets like this all the time, didn't drive in it much though!

Subway girl.

otilius said...

ha, ha, it can drive you nuts, unless you just let it go, knowing that this is one of the most densely populated parts of our country and it is what it is.

uhuh, easy to say...
;]

Mrs. Mecomber, yes, I will do it. hmmm, of course, I won't pin myself down as to "when". :P

Yikes ,,, this just reinforces my resolve not to visit. But I know I'd be missing on some really great stuff that can only be had there.
