Diary of a Crazy Artist: Looking at New York Right Now

Some pictures from walking around Manhattan last week.

Wall Street and Nassau Street around lunch time. July, 2012.

Jewelery Inc., on Church Street near Ground Zero. Stores in New York that sell diamonds often have a large plastic or metal diamond mounted on their awning. July, 2012.

Times Square crowd waiting to see the new Batman film. July, 2012.

An elderly suit salesman pausing after trying to hand out fliers on Broadway. July, 2012.

Tall ships are still docked along the South Street Seaport, just as they were 200 years ago. July, 2012.

You can see the rebuilding of ground zero from all over Manhattan. Here the two towers are already rising high above everything near them. July, 2012.
