And looking at the silver statues in the middle,
where is "see no evil"? On the other hand,
what does that have to do with Buddha
(as opposed to those turquoise monkeys)? Oh well,
it's what you might expect at a NYC street fair.

There are 12 of these globes on display
(until sometime in September)
as part of the exhibit "Cool Globes: Hot Ideas
for a Cool Planet," which traveled around
the world for years before arriving here in Battery Park.
Each one is five feet in diameter and each
portrays a simple, everyday idea for combatting
climate change. You can see them all here.

This flower is not the only thing wilting in the
heat wave we're having around here
at the moment. (97°F/36°C today.) And I
haven't turned on my AC because birds
have nested right underneath it.
Am I being foolish?

Not something you see every day: This guy
was painted silver and had a parakeet
(on his head) and a kitten. I didn't hang around
to see what his schtick was; I also didn't
give him money to see if it would make him move.

Those young women were there for the same
reason I was: to pay homage and snap
a picture for posterity of the sign the city placed
at the corner of 5th Avenue and 57th Street.
Bill Cunningham was the New York Times's
"roving fashion photographer" and this corner was
one of his favorite spots for catching candid shots of
NYC's fashionable women. His photos could be
seen in the Sunday Times Style section every week.
He will be missed!
