Let's Take The Bus To Work!

Take the M7 bus to work with me! I hop on in the 70's West. A few blocks south, at 66th, we drive past the Lincoln Center and the prestigious Juilliard School...

... then the bus goes around Colombus Circle...

... past Carnegie Hall...

... as yellow cabs whiz past beautiful buildings...

... I get off at Times Square, with its orgy of billboards...

... and leaving 42nd street behind...

... I reach 38th street, in the old Garment District, where dark little stores still offer sewing machines (new or vintage), dress forms and all kinds of little things.

Lovely to see and read Mary-Laure... I know it's a cliché, but I ♥ NY. Such a great city. Los Angeles is my home, but NY is it's glamorous and exciting cousin. Must visit again soon!

Hi Mary-Laure
Thanks for the ride.. i've really enjoyed this.. I've never visited New York .. hopefully one day.. Fabulous pics..

Now If I still worked in the city.. I could take you around Sydney... although I drive .. so you would get to see the back end of taxis and buses.. haha

Have a lovely week.... xxx Julie

GABBI - I feel the same. I ♥ NY, I ♥ LA!

JULIE - hmmm, and I'm not sure it would be very safe to take pics as you're driving around Sydney......

Thank you for reacquainting me with the twists and turns of the #7 bus. I've been a New Yorker for so long that I'm afraid I've become numb to some of its pleasures!

DON - wherever I am in the world, I love taking buses. You get to see the streets, the people. And it gets me to work in 20 minutes!

Chloe said...

Et bien bravo, je dois lire ton blog pour l'apprendre.
Donc tu es installée à NY, where ? uptown ?

CHLOE - mais non, punkie, je ne suis a NY que pour quelques semaines pour le travail. Uptown West (76th street, a 2 blocks de Steps, l'ecole de danse).
