Ice Cream in Midtown

34th Street, nyc
Photo by myself at 34th Street and Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.

You'd never think of an ice cream truck in the middle of the city, but it happens all the time. Here, one was parked just steps away from Macy's and the Empire State Building.

This area has changed a bit, since part of Sixth Avenue has been closed off to car traffic. Now there are tables and umbrellas for people to sit outside and rest after their grueling shopping. Just about every popular store can be found on 34th Street - the Gap, Zara, Uniqlo, Forever 21, Steve Madden, etc. etc.

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! All offices will be closed on Monday. The last couple weeks, the city has felt empty. It's been a good time to get away. Mark and I will be staying in town.

I wonder what they have to pay to the local authorities to park there and sell their delicious offerings Kitty?
We have "Mr Whippy" here!
