This is a typical street fair that they were having on Columbus Day on Broadway ( The Canyon of Heroes ), always great for changing a taxi drivers plans to get you near Wall St ....NOT !! Well at least you can pull over somewhere and get some cheap food if you want, and smell a lot of different countries foods and be exposed to the products and potions of the traveling salespeople who really sell their asses off all day.
Yes, you too can have a New York attitude beginning at infancy a la' Calvin.
And.....if you weren't lucky enough to have the "tude" since infancy, you can always get your superhero boxers which will give you much support....and some New York, or Gotham, or Metropolis attitude. Whichever you prefer of course, or you can purchase all for some real attitude and probably turn into a New York Taxi Driver !!
I think if the entire world purchased these unique salt and pepper shakers there would be peace...or more likely a lot of broken salt and pepper shakers !!
Now as royalty goes, it would not have been proper foreign policy had I not bought some toasted corn on the cob from the Corn King himself, so I did and fortunately what Kings like myself need after eating the ole' corn on a stick, click the pic and zoom in to read what only a King can get in the well placed porta-potty behind the corn king's stand.......what else could he need except for a ROYAL FLUSH !!...ok,ok, I thought it was funny and NO I didnt use it, I hate those things.
This street musician doesn't look happy with his earnings from the fair as he leaves ....but when you got the Corn King versus Mozart at the street fair, its NO CONTEST!!...CORN KING wins every time. Sorry music dude, but no corn would sell at Carnegie Hall if that's any consolation.
This lovely woman who sells roses on Wall St probably is making more than most of the investment bankers right now and isn't locked in a cubicle...AND has a personality !!!!!!
She sings really loud in an accent "RRROSES, Beeoooootttifooooll RRRoses !!!!!" Roll your "R"'s as you sing along please.
And , this was for sale at the fair and reminded me of how scary the economy is, or would this ward off the evil spirited bankers???......these things creep me out either way, so I did not purchase one.
This preacher was screaming to the people that we will be saved if we embrace God and to do so is now and if we don't .....well you get the gist of it I'm sure.
This Preacher was just saying the end of the world is here and to join his foundation against capitalism....I didn't join since there would be no future meetings since the end of the world was here.
This guy was chanting "Stop the Capitalism, Start the Revolution" over and over , however no one joined in.
He paused for a moment and I saw his flag did not resemble mine so I moved on......
The Greed Kills people are still making their presence, they walk around, stand in different places throughout the day but they are still here as they await the UFO to pick them up.
and then there was ONE MAN...
ONE MAN amidst all this chaos of the day playing the National Anthem on his flute over and over.......ONE MAN.....amidst the chaos of this day ONE MAN.....ONE PATRIOT.
I don't know what to expect with this economy and if I were to vote for the President tomorrow, it would be for this ONE MAN who sat on the curb underneath the place where George Washington was sworn in as the 1st President of the United States, and played The National Anthem over and over trying to drown out all the cries of anti American chants. I am not this ONE MAN, I am just the humble King Of New York Hacks. Peace.
