Photo by myself in Midtown, during rush hour.
Friday morning, I emerged from the subway, as I usually do, half-asleep and late for work.
People were dodging this way and that. Some were in a hurry, some were taking their time. A blaring siren went off, and all traffic stopped to let a fire truck pass.
New Yorkers are so accustomed to all the distraction along the streets, that the people and noise don't seem to phase us. At street corners, crowds weave into each other at high speed, as if choreographed.
Even the dogs in New York are unflinching in the face of such chaos!
By the way, my Meal O'bama photograph is featured as the photo of the week on the Manhattan Young Democrats site.
