On Po-Pos and Open House New York

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.

Great atmosphere. It pays to have a camera with you every time so to see.

The "Open House" event is great. We have the same in the Netherlands and it is so special to visit places you always wanted to see!

We're having Open House Chicago this weekend too, Kitty! Marion and I still have to sit down and map out the places we want to see. Regarding riveting crime shows, the new "Prime Suspect"--which is set in NYC--is excellent. It not only offers the usual mystery stuff, done well, and glimpses of the city; the often contentious interactions of the detectives in their work roles feel very real.

this is a classic. The concerned girls, the suspicious cop, the lighting, it could be the 70s
