Seasons Greetings from the City of New York

December 25, 2009

This wreath is hanging above the plaza of the Manhattan Municipal Building, a magnificent limestone structure at the intersection of Chambers and Centre Streets, just north of the Brooklyn Bridge. Happy Holidays to you and yours from the City of New York.

Overheard last night on Court Street

Last night, while walking down Court Street in Brooklyn, I overheard this intriguing snippet of conversation:

“No, no, no, not her! First of all, that girl was raised in the church. Plus, she loves eating her meat like nobody’s business. She loves to eat sausages, she loves to eat pork chops, she loves to eat ham hocks. She ain’t givin’ up that meat for nobody, not God or man.”
