I was planning a series of posts when I was there. One for each day. They would be numbered and be named something boisterous, like New York Chronicles, or so. Still, a few hours ago I told Jorge:
“I do not know what to write about the trip. Or the city.”
“Don’t worry, it will all ooze out in time.”
“But I do want to post something on New York now!”
“Well, just post some pictures.”
Same old kind of advice. But I followed it. So, here.
First, the obligatory shot of Times Square.
Tango behind a shop window, advertising some show.
Looking up from Bryant Park.
A virtual convergence (?), from the Lower East Side.
However, some Americans seem to have got it right (from the Coliseum bookshop).
Our favourite New York landmark.
More of the ‘alzarsi perpendicolarmente’ business here.
A view from Brooklyn Bridge,
and another one.
An urban landscape from within MoMA,
and from Central Park.
Pure Upper West Side.
The Angel of Bethesda (also known as ‘I, I, I…’)
Ascending Guggenheim crowds:
Views from the Empire State Building.
Looking Northwest, to Times Square.
Looking Northeast, to the Chrysler Building and Queens.
Looking Southwest, towards Chelsea.
Finally, I think the quote of this trip is by Jod, while waiting for the subway and as a response to a Chinese fiddle playing in the station:
“This music makes me wanna pee.”
