You Don’t See These Everyday! Scenes from New York

My family and I recently spent a weekend in New York City, visiting my son, who is a student at NYU. During our trip, we saw a few unusual sights that I thought I’d share with you. You don’t see these everyday.

View to the southwest from the "Top of the Rock," the highest building of Rockefeller Center in New York. The Empire State Building is lit with green, white, and red in honor of Columbus Day.

I'm not sure I quite understand this ad in the subway, but I take it to be less than positive about the governor of Texas. A curious way to advertise storage units, don't you think?

A memorial to Steve Jobs, who died a couple of days ago, in front of the Apple Store near Central Park in New York. Crowds gathered to pay tribute Jobs. There were hundreds of bouquets of flowers on the ground and, fittingly, apples, many of which had a bite out of them.

In the center of this memorial, somebody put up a quotation in sticky notes to honor Steve Jobs. It comes from a commercial Apple produced in 1997, the “Think Different” commercial. The quotation whole quotation reads:

Here’s to the crazy ones. The rebels. The troublemakers. The ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

For some reason, I get the feeling that New Yorkers are more inclined to favor Steve Jobs than Rick Perry.
