New Yawk, New Yawk....

All 'Round the Tawn....

New York still has hatters.... (This one on West 18th, between 7th and 8th Avenues). Get a load of the 'Authentiques' shop, left. New York still has 'em too!

The cop is directing traffic at 34th Street while mid-day strollers, tourists, and mid-town wage slaves relax in chaise lounges in Herald Square. First, it was Times Square. Then, Herald Square. What's next? Lounging on a rail-bed Highline? Wait.... They're doing that too.

What a relief! Bas relief at Rockefeller Center buildings.

At least it still starts with an 'S'..... Scribner's the famous literary publishing house, famous for publishing Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and other wunderkinds of early 20th century American literature went out of business in the late 1990's. (The imprint 'Scribbner's' still exists, but only as a vestige). Thankfully the French outfit that owns Sephora didn't mess with the building's exterior at 5th and 48th.

Mary Poppins on Broadway -- actually, in Byrant Park, behind the New York Public Library. Lunch-time crowds got to listen yesterday to the Broadway cast hoop it up.

Penn has its broken button in front of the Van Pelt Library. Of course, New York has one too. This one is 7th Avenue at 39th, in the heart of the rag trade district.
