A Day in the Park

Today I went to the Met. It turned out to be a beautiful day here in the city. I saw some things I hadn't seen before. Then again, I guess it's virtually impossible not to. It's always a nice way to spend a day.

Being the weekend it was a bit crowded. But, I always get in for free with a pass that I'm very grateful for.

After leaving the Met I decided to walk across Central Park to the Upper West Side. Along the way, at Bethesda fountain I found the "bubble man" whom I've written about before. This guy makes bubbles with two sticks, a piece of rope and some dish liquid. Parents love taking photos of their kid in a bubble or making one. He get's a buck or two for every kid. That pink bucket in the foreground was stuffed with cash. The guy probably lives next door to a banker in some CPW co-op.

In the elevator of the Dakota: "Hello, I'm Lloyd Blankfein, I'm the CEO of Goldman Sachs." "Hello, I'm Abdullah, I make bubbles in Central Park."

  1. I love the still of the blurred people. It captures the movement and business in day in a life of a newyorker and freezes that moment which was gone in an instant.
