Photo by myself, on the Upper West Side.
Perhaps it's the police presence that makes New York feel safe these days. I'm not sure what was going in the photo above, Tuesday night.
Mark and I call the NYPD 'po-po's, after riveting TV show The Wire.
The Wire was a crime show not set in New York, but in Baltimore. It is a bit violent at times, but well worth the watch.
On an unrelated note, this weekend is Open House New York weekend!
All sorts of tours are available to the public. Visit residences, offices, glass factories, hotels and even an African Burial Ground (the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan, to be exact).
All tours are free. Some require reservations, so make your plans now. There are over a hundred venues to choose from. The list will make your head spin.
