New York in Grainy Pictures

My three months in New York are over, so no more xiaolongbao at Yeah Shanghai, long rides on the New Jersey Transit trains, seminars on additive combinatorics, and hot pot at Minni’s Shabu Shabu for me.

The other night, the traffic information board on 110th and Amsterdam was saying “CCCOOORRR… FFFFFF… AAAUUUU” which is how I too felt about the weather.

This is probably meant to lure in Italian tourists

The Apple store on 5th avenue open at 2:40am (and through the night), because it’s never too late (or too early) to buy an iPhone

In the Canal stop of the N-Q-R-W. There were no signs in other languages.

I agree, it’s good.

  1. Luca, “Fika” is not only offensive to an italian, it is also swedish slang for “taking a cup of coffee”.

  2. I love the subway shot! And I’ve finally figured out why I always assumed it was the 7 (of course, I didn’t find out it couldn’t be the 7 until I got to Manhattan last summer).

  3. but you can hear the conductor say “this is the Manhattan-bound B train making express stops”
