On Shore Leave, in Midtown

Sailors a-shopping, nyc
Photo by myself around Fifth Avenue and 38th Street, in Midtown.

Much of Manhattan is inward-looking (in more ways that one), so it's sometimes hard to remember that it is an island and one that is visited by ships!

Above, two sailors in uniform looked through some postcards on the sidewalk. I took this recently, that is, not around Memorial Day weekend, when we are visited by many ships. During that time of year, we see many, many sailors in their white uniforms walking around, enjoying themselves.

Happy Monday, everyone!

New York is a city where eventually you will see everything.

Yes, I noticed that when I visited New York. As I get older, they look so young to me....

They look french by the use of the red pompom on their hat.
