Lost in a Crowd, in Midtown

Photo by myself, at 34th Street and Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.

Contrary to popular belief, New Yorkers do help with directions. And correct ones, at that.

This photo is from my stash, but it could have happened yesterday. The crowds are still in full force in Midtown. This was taken on one of the busiest street corners in the city, though it is absolutely nothing compared with places like Tokyo.

We're having perfect Fall-like weather during the day, with temperatures dropping drastically at night. Sleeping without the air conditioner, with the windows wide open, is a joy.

Happy weekend, everyone!

I find New Yorkers plenty helpful and social when I'm there. I get into more conversations with perfect strangers there than in any other city.

But not all New Yorkers are helpful, Kitty. Here's one of my favorites from Overheard in New York (definitely R-rated):

Hi Kitty! I can say that New Yorkers do help with information, not with an open smile, but the do help. :o)

Have a nice weekend!

& have you noticed, if you look lost or happen to be questioning a friend about how to get somewhere, a New Yorker will think nothing of approaching you, asking you if you need directions?
It's happened to me more than once - & I am from NY! & it always makes me smile.

In spite of persistent rumors that New Yorkers are rude and aloof I place them second only to the people who live in New Orleans. Both are helpful and will go out of their way to help visitors to their city. The only difference I found was that New Orleans has worse humidity than New York.

An easy place to get lost in :)
