Street Meats, on Seventh Avenue

Street Cart, nyc Photo by myself on 42nd Street and Broadway.

The street carts are always great photo opportunities, with the lights, scrolling LED signs and steam. This cart was selling grilled meats on skewers, pretzels and drinks.

We've been having steamy, uncomfy weather here in New York. It's this time of year when you realize how unnatural it is to go underground (to ride the subway) when it's so darned hot.

Of course, all eyes are turned toward London, at the Olympics. The latest updates are broadcast in the elevator cabs of our office building.

TGIF everyone!

You have a great photographers eye and make me want to stop what I'm doing and draw your image. That definitely captures the feeling of NY.

I'm definitely your newest follower!

Have a great day!

I love the variety of street food in New York. From trendy food trucks to hot dogs (always have at least one when I visit) to fresh fruit sold at reasonable prices. Regarding going underground when it's so hot, my wife often likes to deliver subway weather reports when we're in the station. Often, it's some version of "Subway weather update: Hot, muggy and smelly."
