It almost looks as if the flowers are leaning in for the selfie… #SpringInNYC
“I was looking out of the window in New York and everybody was rushing around, almost running. Everybody seemed to be in a state of intense nervous tension, anxiety. It’s suffering, really, but it’s not recognized as suffering. And I thought, where are they all running to? And of course, they are all running to the future. They are needing to get somewhere, which is not here. It is a point in time: not now—then. They are running to a then. They are suffering, but they don’t even know it.”
The streets of Little Italy NYC were packed tonight and the place was buzzing with tourists, restaurant goers and street vendors. We were invited to a birthday party at a bar nearby, but I was more interested in sneaking out and photographing some of the amazing murals and art around the area. Little Italy has really turned into a hot spot for artists to showcase what they have to offer.
On our way back towards the city, I happened to catch this amazing shot of the sunset over the New York City skyline. It was only the day after that I found out this rare sighting is called Manhattanhenge, and only happens twice a year!
Spending time with family is the New York of inner peace: If you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere.

My favorite Humans of New York thread in a while. I probably had a little too much fun with this one. #MusicHumor #PunsRule
Only in New York can I hear sirens, construction work, birds chirping and my professional opera-singing neighbor all at the same time…
I can’t wait to see this view in the Fall.
“The Great Gatsby explores themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval, and excess, creating a portrait of the Jazz Age that has been described as a cautionary tale regarding the American Dream.” – Wikipedia
Yesterday a man got on the subway and started preaching that he was a messenger for ‘the Creator’ and that we are all doomed. I mumbled under my breath, “But I am the creator”. He turned to me, shocked, and told me I was being blasphemous. In related news, I blasphemously created these t-shirts with a bleach pen.
Me to a theater full of Jewish New Yorkers as we wait for the movie “The GateKeepers” to start:
“Sooooo… What are we gonna do about those Israelis?”
Them: (nervous laughter)
Me: “It’s ok, I’m Israeli, I’m allowed to say that.”
Them: (relieved laughter)
Excellent movie, by the way… Go watch.
Somebody has been waiting their entire career to make this a headline.
The other day I walked past a famous hamburger restaurant in NYC that had a line of people outside waiting to go in. As I walked by them, I may or may not have MOOOO’d out loud… Not my proudest moment, but it was interesting watching their reactions as they slowly made the connection. 🙂
I feel so at home… Seen in Woodstock, NY.
