I think about it for a minute and realize that maybe the wife and I do the offbeat tour and visit to NYC. We have both lived there, the sisters have lived there for decades, both our families and ancestors lived there: we know NYC, and know what we wanna do and where wanna go when we get there. I have zero desire to visit Times Square, Ground Zero or the Statue of Liberty or whatever people from Wyoming or Utah do in NY. NY has a zillion fun and quirky little corners to explore!
We were downtown in Greenwich Village and Soho Saturday, poking around, and come across ACROBATIC DUDE IN A RAM'S HEAD ON A MAILBOX (see above) and just a minute later we wandered straight through the shooting of GLEE. That's right, you are walking down the street, and they are shooting a TV show and they are trying to just get a natural crowd, I guess, there is really no warning: we went directly in front of 3 cameras and past 2 stars having their lines filmed. The wife was a bit freaked, like we should get out of their way, and why was there no warning? But I was like "they do this on purpose, trying to have a natural street scene, and probably do ten takes at least". You can read all about it here!
