Nice composure. There always seems to be at least one person texting.

Sometimes I think the rush hour takes the whole day in your city. But nice picture.

This would be too busy for me, yet it's nice to see such vitality in an American city's downtown. By comparison, and to no one's surprise, Detroit is a half-deserted village. That's one reason NYC is the BIG apple. But I still don't like the notion that there's nothing between the east and west coasts.

Ha! This great shot perfectly illustrates a growing phenomenon in New York--and Chicago to a lesser extent. The normal hurried pace (witness the guy in the khaki shorts) is being compromised by too many people texting. On our last visit, we were constantly having to weave around people like the guy in the foreground. A New York friend who commutes on foot through Midtown says that he often gives texters a good solid shoulder as he passes them.
