Photo by myself at 58th Street and Lexington Avenue, on the Upper East Side.
The tilted glass facade of Cesar Pelli's building at 731 Lexington Ave, above, surrounds an outdoor atrium for cars and people. The Bloomberg offices are located here, as are some fancy stores and restaurants, and over 100 luxury condominium apartments.
This is a great shopping area, just a couple blocks away from Bloomingdales and other clothing stores. I was here the other day at the A&D Building across the street, which houses tons of showrooms for designer appliances and furniture.

It's been really, uncomfortably hot these days.
The humidity makes it feel worse. Tuesday, the temperature was in the mid-80s with humidity about 85%.
You go from the hot outdoors down below to a scorching hot subway platform, then to a cool or sometimes freezing subway car. Then back out again to the scorching subway platform.
How is everyone's summer going?

Photo by myself in Times Square.
The other day I was coming home from doing an errand after work. I somehow got on an Q train headed uptown rather than downtown, and got out at 49th Street in the midst of Times Square. My worst nightmare.
A jillion people were there, and it was hot. As you can see, there are psychics here, too.
The latest thing it seems are these very scantily clad women who pose with tourists. They wear tiny bikini bottoms and no tops whatsoever. [Actually I'm not sure they are wearing bottoms. The jury is out]. What looks like a bikini top is actually painted on!!!!!!
Oh, and feathers. They have feathers on their heads.
Sorry for the technical glitch the other day.
