Our 30th Anniversary - Chapter 9: Quintessential New York

There are just a few more sights of New York that we want to share - sights that are so common that they are essential, or quintessential, New York. Here they are, in no particular order.

Taxi cabs. There are an estimated 12,000 taxi cabs in New York.

Magazine stands - the old (l) and the new (r).

Bus tour sales agents on every street corner.

Bike cabs.

Corner hot dog stands.

Famous people ... we saw "The Donald" Trump(top l), Diane Kruger of "National Treasure" (top r), and Matt McCarthy of Verizon FIOS commercials (bottom). (OK, we only took the picture of Trump, but we really saw them all!)

Street purse sellers ... imagine Prada and Coach for $30!
(Ah, honey, they are fake!)

Subway stations.

Ice cream trucks.

Garbage sacks.

And last, but not least, deli's.
Next up - a great gift.
