Only in New York... :)

I am a city girl, so not much surprises me... ;) Still, there are some things that I had never seen before... New York is such a big city with so many sites, sounds and people, so of course you will have some surprises... like

Hare Krishna singing in the middle of Times Square


Hundred and hundred of police cars with lights flashing, in the middle of the day, on one street, leaving one after the other...


Street sellers on every corner of the streets...

Gun shops (in Montreal, don't even know if you can buy a gun... ;) )



That one cracked me up!!! :)


Of course, Times Square, is something so "special" - there's nothing quite like it!!



Hot dog vendors - don't see that in Montreal - too much snow!!! ;)


Break dancers - so talented - in the middle of sidewalks!



For Easter, at Macy's, the have flowers everywhere... even in store displays!!!


This is a city parking - never seen one like that in my life!! Thought it was a car dealership!!!


Chinatown - Fish of the day!!


Big sale of the day - Coats for $20!!!

NY store signs




And my favorite ... Couldn't help but take a quick picture... He was standing talking on his cell - all dressed in leopard... WOW!!!

I am the complete opposite of a city girl so I'm really enjoying seeing the sights through your eyes. What a great variety of photos to show the variety in New York. The Oprah one is so funny!
