i took a lot more photos but I haven’t been feeling like putting them online! If you have me on facebook then you already saw how shitty they are. anyways, today I finally got banking sorted out so horray! So see the previous post about a potential proxy service, if you’re interested that is.
today’s photo dump includes a bunch of photos of 30ROCK (all hail tina fey) and my favorite place, the new york public library!
my dad’s sort of from new york (mostly no though), specifically Elmhurst area in queens. So on a day that I was feeling tired I decided to go visit where he used to live. It’s mostly inhabited by spanish and mexican folks. I only visited him once while he was here so I couldn’t even find the apt building that he used to live in. It’s a few subway stops from where I am staying now and I decided to have lunch there.
Some sort of champagne soda thing.
the only I NY thing that I saw. When I am being a tourist, I really try to hide the fact that I am a tourist. For lots of reasons, mostly because I am scared of being judged. But there are people that walk around in I NY shirts. I felt sort of surprised that anyone would wear it while in new york....
also i’ve been drinking a lot of this lately, which is just ice tea from dunkin’ donuts, it’s 99 cents for any size. okay it’s a great way to start the day haha
also i love the way ice tea LOOKS, it looks amazing don’t you think? the way the ice chips float, i just freaking love it.
I really love the subway! there are so many beautiful pieces of art in all sorts of styles across the city. I also like taking the subway, it’s loud and quiet at the same time…
on Monday I tried to go to MoMA but totally failed because the line was humongous. I didn’t know that the Moma actually required a ticket rather than just via donations. WELL, it’s like $25. So just as well, i’ll go on friday afternoon (4-8) when it’s free and sponsored by Target, merci Target.
Rockerfeller Plaza……. because of 30ROCK ok.
the lego store! which by the way, i think vancouver is getting one too….
and the beautiful New York Public Library. This is the one on 42nd and 5th. And I am pretty sure that this is the library that they used in the Sex and the City movie, hey hey! HEY i was a fan until the 2nd movie came out. But too bad this library isn’t actually where you go to borrow books, mostly for tourists and people like me to rest and use their wi-fi.
