I was very confused today when I got off the train at Time Square while on my way to work. Instead of being nearly taken out by a yellow cab I was surrounded by blocks upon blocks of beach chairs. I’ve been working near Time Square for slightly over 8 months now and I’ve seen my fair share of gimmicks and head turners so I brushed it off like all those feathers from the last pillow fight. One of my coworkers told me it was permanent but being the skeptic that I am I didn’t believe her and asked Terrence to dig up the scoop. Apparently I should pay more attention to the news… but I chose to stop doing that ages ago and am also frightfully behind on my Daily Show intake. So apparently one of Bloombergs genius plans for a congestion free NYC wasn’t resigned to the chopping block. Who knew? I’m not sure how I’m going to feel about this in the long run but I was initially annoyed by it. Think it’s kind of stupid. On the other hand most of Broadway is already a one way street anyway. But then again I sure do hate tourists and will miss seeing them nearly splattered atop a taxi cab hood. I did enjoy not missing my train while waiting for that long ass light to change though… hmm… This may take a while to settle with me.
