Photo by myself at the 34th Street subway station.
The Alex Lo Dico Ensemble played jazz to the rush hour crowd, Tuesday evening. I wrote about them earlier, here.
Like most places, it's not an easy time in New York right now.
The city is facing another subway fare hike. A vote today (Wednesday) determines whether the fare will jump from $2 a ride to $2.50.
Is it me, or does the subway fare seem to continually go upwards?!
As an antidote, I offer you this. The circus is in town and guess how the elephants get into the city?
They take the tunnel, of course.
Yes, the Ringling Brothers elephants walk themselves into Manhattan underground, via the Midtown Tunnel. It's an annual spectacle that I've heard about but never attended.
Hopefully next year, I'll give everyone a heads up - if you're near the tunnel entrance, you can see them all come out.
More about the elephants here.
