Magnificent pics.

I can't stop thinking about the guy selling Chestnuts and NY Pretzels. I used to love buying them on a cold winter day in NYC. Thanks for the memories.

Thanks for your comments. I need to stop depending on Auto, and then complaining because it does not make magic.

As nice as the Cloisters is it isn't worth that price of admission. I remember going there many years ago and I think we got in for free.

As a kid I lived near the Bronx Zoo, we used to climb a fence to get in there.

Don't forget everything is so much more expensive these days. I remember spending $10 for a carton of cigarettes and today that's what 1 pack costs.

Wonderful pictures, thanks for sharing! I think zoos should be less money, I know they are costly to maintain though but some are too pricey.

I was thinking the same thing. As a non-city type, waaaaay too many people and too much visual background noise to process day to day with no relief.

But, the pics themselves are really very nice.
