I love everything about NYC, including the no-so-tidy subway system that takes you anywhere you want to go.  I think it has so much character and so much history that I can’t imagine this city without it.  Then I saw this illustration by Julia Rothman.   I love the fact that soon as I looked at it, I started to hear “Empire State of Mind” in my head….

This is for my westcoast buddies.  This is what you’re missing out on.  I promise you, listen to it at least 2 times.  You won’t be able to get it out of your head…..

This was at the New York Botanical Garden in Brooklyn couple of years back at the annual “the orchid show”.    This was before my nikon d40…. Not bad

John was telling me how he saw this news article about how much it cost the tax payers for the air force one fiasco in new york city the other day.  I was totally floored.  $300,000!!!!!!! Yes, you read it correctly, that’s how much it cost for the air force one to fly over ground zero/statute of liberty with fighter jet escort, and scare the crap out of the paranoid new yorkers. 

Of course, folks like Jon Stewart was able to come up with much more cost-efficient way to deal such tasks.  Jon Stewart’s solution seems sooo much more reasonable compared to 300k.  And there’s something else I found on NY Daily News called, “Create Your Own NYC Air Force One Flyover Photo.”  Pretty hilarious!
