Only in New York

What started out as a Sunday afternoon tour of Central Park's Bethesda Terrace and Fountain (don't miss the newly restored Minton tile ceiling) ends with a startling and yet typical "Only in New York" encounter. I wonder if he caught anything in his fish nets.

The Minton tile is gorgeous. The man in fish nets, not so much.

Another thing that strikes me ... the people appear to be more lean and fit than is generally true when viewing a video of the general populace in a big American city.

It's scenes like that that compensate for the -at times- dullness of living in New York.

I think I'm too jaded.

Can't believe she wore her shoes into the fountain. Didn't her mother teach her anything?

You have to admire anyone who can wade in a fountain in spike heels.

You say: "Only in New York."

I say: "Only YOU!"

She didn't seem too worried about your camera work on her shapely gams. Love the videos...keep 'em coming.

I need to do more exploration of Central Park.

I hate it when drag queens are built hunkier than I am.

Thank you for this slice of life. The tile work is fabulous, and I am making note of it for my pool and cabana in Florida when the lotto money finally comes to papa. The Merman was a treat. Who knew their tales turned to fuck me pumps on dry land?

oh! that tile!! i am fanning myself. it is magnificent. i'm going to replay and pause to get a better view. gorgeous.

and the lovely lady in the fountain? magnificent as well. so graceful! when she first came into view, i was reminded of the marvelously elegant blue herons of the gulf coast. . . . and so sweet! "thank you" in such a well modulated voice.

thank you!

who ever was holding the video camera as they walked down the stairs HAD to have been wearing clear plastic Barbie slip on mules. I can recognize that 'clikety - clakety' anywhere.

and fishnet in the fountain is yet another reason why i love living in NfuckingYC!!
