I thought it would be fun to participate in Challenge Walk in the Street at http://walkinnewyork.blogspot.com/, a really cool site where bloggers post street scenes from all over the world and from my (of course) favorite city, New York. I took several shots this week of New York City street scenes, and I decided to contribute this one because it shows a really vibrant area, full of activities and color. It's the Flatiron District at the corner of 5th and Broadway where people gather and sit leisurely right by the street. I'll share with you what I like about this street scene, which is so typical of New York City. The first thing is the magnificent Flatiron building in the background. I find it amazing how they constructed it in this interesting triangular shape with a beautiful ornamental facade. To the right, check out the whimsical building with the golden roof. I love the red New York City sightseeing bus on the street, taking people for tours around the city. Coincidentally, there is a lady crossing the street with a matching red sweater! I like the fact that the lady with the laptop in the front has a reflection of a tree on her screen. By the pink magnolia tree on the left, a couple is studying a map, while someone else takes a photograph, probably tourists. And let's not forget the little pigeon making a cameo appearance on the ground as well. Ah, New York City, I do love thee.
