NYC Transit Strike, Day 3
The strike is still on as of this writing, but I hear that it's being resolved soon, and that is wonderful news. I walked all the way to work from Brooklyn this morning. It took me two hours but it was an enjoyable experience because the sun was shining and the sky was blue. Of course I brought my camera. The photo above is a scary beast in front of a Bowery restaurant supply store. Below is the pedestrian/bike path on the Williamsburg Bridge.
Again I haven't got the time to write much of an entry, but here are a few photos. The penthouse on the top of the building in the following photo supposedly belongs to 50 Cent. Of course he wants to live in my neighborhood.
Here's some graffiti in Williamsburg.
This is what you say when you have to leave Brooklyn.
And here's a view from the bridge.
So I made it into Manhattan and walked uptown through the Lower East Side. The following photo is of another restaurant supply store on the Bowery. Click on any of these photos to make them big.
As I walked uptown I couldn't help but notice that the subways were still shuttered.
I walked up Park Avenue South and then over to Fifth Avenue, which I took all the way up to 57th Street. Here's a photo of the Empire State Building.
And here's Rockefeller Center. Those in the know called the tall building in the center "30 Rock." Now you can too! Many NBC studios are located there, such as the one for Saturday Night Live.
As I neared my destination, I photographed this guy, because we both had our ordeals today.
I'd like to post more, but I have things to do. If all goes well, subway service will be restored by tomorrow (Friday) morning, and it's not a moment too soon. Jenn and I will fly down to D.C. tomorrow night to visit my parents in Virginia, and we'll be back on Monday. Merry Christmas, everyone!
