Strike up the Band, in Washington Square Park

Street Musicians, Washington Square
Photo by myself in Washington Square Park, in the Village.

A folky group of musicians played, while their tattooed lead singer belted out a song.


We've had a beautiful weekend here in New York, the kind that's sunny and breezy and perfect.

Just about everyone was walking outside enjoying the air. All the restaurants and stores had their doors and windows flung open, so as you walked, you could see a hundred different worlds going on.

I wish every day could follow suit, but alas, we're New York and not California! The typical summer weather here is hotter and humid.

Our weekend was RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, and it is predicted thru the end of May. Oh...

With nearly 90F during midday more than understood. Wearing a bit of ink myself, I hope that the music at least was good.
Please have a nice Tuesday.

Hi Olivier
Yes it's striking isn't it? I think because she's wearing a dress and is feminine. It's the contrast that gets you.

Hi Elsiee
Me too! I have to wonder if those are tattoos on her face?!

Thanks Robert!

Hi Bibi
I commiserate with your constant rain. At least the plants will do well, right? But for another two weeks??!

Hi Washington
Yes, I fear the humidity will hugely impact how much you can see or do each day. Do take it easy, your itinerary is challenging. Hopefully it won't be so bad this year...it truly fluctuates.

Thanks Lily!

Ha Ken
There ain't no sax! You mean the tuba?!

Hi Joanne
Thanks for tuning in so often despite your incredible travels. I am envious of you!

Hello ρομπερτ
The music was very good, actually. Almost better than these folks looked!
