Oh yeah, you’re still in New York!

I have lived in New York City long enough now that I remain unphased when presented with something that might be perceived as really odd in a city or town anywhere else in the U.S. For example, there are dogs in my neighborhood whose owners dress them in cashmere sweaters whenever it snows outside. There are ATM’s literally held together with duct tape or electrical tape that people still feel comfortable using despite the obvious security risks (the one in the above photo was actually used by ME, moments before I took this picture, because I urgently needed cash to buy a coffee at Stumptown). In memory of the late, great, and kind of weird Mayor Ed Koch, I wanted to post a little tribute to the persistent strangeness of this city. This place is full of odd surprises whenever you take a step back from your daily routine and look around. It’s what makes New York City the greatest in the world.
