It was a little anti-climatic.
The photo to the left was taken on the last occasion I went to Times Square. I went with my hostel friend, Tim and we were passing time until we had to head to the St. James Theatre to see the Broadway production of American Idiot. It was a fantastic people watching opportunity but the thing that surprised me the most sits squarely in the middle of this picture. There is a memorial for a guy that served as religious counsel in 2-3 wars. It seems weirdly at odds with its surrounds.
I took about 5 pictures in 12 days that have me in frame. This one is thanks to Tim as I took his photo in the same spot and he insisted I do the same despite my protests to the contrary. Within a day of being in NYC I dressed for comfort which meant ugly shoes, no make up and clothes I felt comfortable sweating in - it is NOT glam.
