Waiting, in Times Square

Times Square, nyc
Photo by myself around Seventh Avenue and 44th Street, in Times Square.

A random assortment of people stood patiently, waiting for the light to change.

This photo was taken from the back of a passing cab.

There were huge traffic jams on Tuesday because President Obama was speaking at the U.N. I had a meeting on the Upper East Side and it took forever to get there, and cost a huge amount of money.

On the way back, my cab driver suggested 'cutting through Central Park, going down Central Park West, then taking 7th Avenue'. This is the equivalent of running from second base to home plate by way of right field.

This is why we happened to drive through Times Square. Usually we just drive straight down Fifth Avenue.

You staged this photo, right. People in New York don't really wait for a green light, do they?:-)

Ah. Waiting. A New Yorker's life in a nutshell. I can't say I miss it.

Great shot, Kitty. And your cab driver's suggestion reminded me of recently seeing the movie Premium Rush. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a bike messenger trying to deliver something in Manhattan that a really bad guy doesn't want delivered. Total fluff, but a lot of fun. It's essentially one long chase sequence, with the minimal plot filled in with intermittent flashbacks. It had us on the edges of our seats pretty much the whole time. And it was a blast seeing the streets of New York as they flew by.
