Speaking about New York City

LPR was in Manhattan, May 15, passing by empty stores on Broadway, seeing men wearing signboards, and a few buildings that apparently are to be torn down for new construction. LPR also noticed several fenced, corner sites where construction is underway.

Observation on Manhattan streets suggests a mixed economic message. vacant stores; construction going on. And a fair amount of sales transacted on Broadway sidewalks.

Watermelons on Upper Broadway

The cut watermelons in formation were spotted near 110th street. A few blocks down Broadway, LPR witnessed watermelons being tossed. FYI -- the tosses, as the one in the photograph, were caught. Send the watermelon tossers to Dave Letterman.
