At a Crossroads, Outside Macy's

Outside Macy's, NYC
Photo by myself around 35th Street and Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.

A fellow was taking photos of the billboard on the Macy's building, Tuesday evening. What looks like an odd hat is really the flash attachment of his camera.

Macy's is located at 34th Street, where Broadway and Sixth Avenue intersect. The result is a large open space. A small public park is located on the sliver in the middle.

The 34th Street subway station and Long Island Railroad station is located here, too. Times Square is just steps away at 42nd Street. There is always tons of people walking about.

On a l'impression qu'il veut voir sous les jupes des filles de la pub de chez Macy's ;))

"Rétines et pupilles,
Les garçons ont les yeux qui brillent
Pour un jeu de dupes :
Voir sous les jupes des filles,
Et la vie toute entière,
Absorbés par cette affaire,
Par ce jeu de dupes :
Voir sous les jupes des filles." Souchon

I hope somehow the photographer in your photograph gets to see this picture. This is a great photograph, so much to look at.
Stop by & enter my giveaway Kitty. I'm giving away a Peter Lik photography book that you might like. Just click on the beach picture on the left sidebar & leave a comment on last Saturday's post- if you'd like...!

One thing I love about New York is that even that "sliver in the middle" is used to its utmost. Just about every square inch of public space is actively used and treasured.

Ha, Olivier

My french is not so good, but I know that 'jupe' means skirt. The poster is a great one. The fabric draws you eye, even across the street. (The skirt is a very faint pink, a pretty color).

Hi Lily
Thanks so much, esp for the heads up about your giveaway. What a great thing for you to do!

Hi Terry
So. Utterly. True.

We are space hoarders over here. Nothing taken for granted. I wish the city were a bit cleaner though!

Ha, Za!

Oh! I just noticed the poster. Somehow no one mentioned its obvious reference to the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover.

Terry, what a great point. Ha.
I would never have noticed!!
