I Love New York


I am delighted to report that I was able to download my last batch of pictures and I've got photos for I and J. I was starting to get a little anxious this afternoon about what I would do if I couldn't download them. I had a backup plan of posting a picture of a Mr. Softy truck and calling it "Ice Cream," or going over to the Battleship Intrepid -- very out of the way -- on my way home.

Saturday night I was in the Times Square area and took a number of pictures of the sights. I was pleased to find I Love New York Gifts to illustrate I. J and K will be from the same neighborhood and they give a picture of the liveliness of Times Square on a spring Saturday night. In 1979 I worked two blocks away from this address. The neighborhood was at best, seedy, and not especially safe. The change over the years has been great and it's good to feel safe and comfortable in the center of Manhattan.

Today's featured blogger is Nellie at "Berries and More." I've enjoyed getting to know Nellie and visit Tennessee through her blog.

Wishes for an Interesting Thursday!

I always love going to NYC, but would never want to live there. Visiting a few times a year is enough for me!

I think I remember when the "I LOVE NY" campaign started - - - not the exact year - - but it was in or just after the 70's? My mom (who lived in Albany) had all kinds of buttons, etc. She would get stuff for us since we loved NY, too - - having been raised there.
