I spotted these two orthodox Jewish boys on the F train on my way home from work, they were dressed in black suits with black hats and seem to be brothers. They were both tired and decided to sleep by leaning forward into their laps which made for an interesting visual as you only see the top of their hats.
I was on my way home from work and was waiting for the F train at the 34th street herald square subway station and spotted this 7 year old Asian boy playing the keyboard. He was really amazing and played the piano effortlessly, he played classical songs from Beethoven, Mozart, and some others. He was accompanied by his dad and every time he completed a song he would get up and take a bow.
As he started playing everyone standing around and walking by had to stop and check this kid out and soon the money started to roll in. He even received a few rounds of applause from on lookers. At times he would just take his eyes off the keyboard and stare at the crowd while still playing the song perfectly.

Over the weekend I was on the E train and spotted the above advertisement for the New York Yankees Fragrance, yes that's right a Yankees cologne for men and perfume for women... The first thought that came to mind was what the hell? is this real? It seems it is real and the sad part is people will buy it, the official website for the Yankees fragrance is nyyankeesfragrance.com. The slogan for the ad was "Past, Present, Forever".
So if you're wondering what does the New York Yankees Fragrance smell like? Some options might be freshly mowed grass, beer, ball park hot dogs, tobacco, sun flower seeds, or smell like a champion.
I saw this New York City Yellow Taxi Cab parked outside of my parent's house and decided to get it on video. This is a typical NYC cab which is a Ford Crown Victoria. This cab is in pretty good condition and you can see a close up of what the Taxi Medallion looks like. The Taxi has an advertisement of the upcoming movie The Five-Year Engagement.

So me and friend were at Starbucks in 1 Penn Plaza on Tuesday and then this guy walks by. We couldn't help but laugh as he was dressed very weird. He was African American and was wearing a skirt, a rainbow colored wig, had multiple scarfs hanging from his waste and some additional accessories that made him look very crazy. Only in New York City!
