There are things without which this city cannot survive: NYPD, FDNY, yellow cab, street vendors, to name a few. And there are things with which the city continues to thrive: street performers, among others.
New York City Police Department: There’s a fine line between their alertness and friendliness.
Fire Department of the city of New York: All of us know what their contribution has been (before, on, after 9/11). Don’t (therefore) hate the sound their trucks make.
Blue Boat: I see one of these every day from my apartment. Their reach is far and wide.
Yellow Cab: Ubiquitous, and the need of the minute.
School Bus: Safe and sound, and in shape.
United States Postal Service: They do deliver.
Deli: Coffee, croissant, muffin, and more.
Street Food: Devour it.
Laborers: The most ignored are the most hardworking.
Citi Bikes: Ride them.
Horse carriage ride: Harsh?
Solo ride is light ride
Scare the brave
Hug the loving
Street Performers: Talented, and though they do this for money, they won’t ask you for a cent.
