Here's a small handful of the 8 million plus fellow citizens who call this quaint burg  home.

                     Rolando Politi is the creator and curator of the recycled sculptures
                     that adorn the fence surrounding a corner park on E. 9th Street in 
                     the East Village.

"Heartman" was caught mid stride covering a swath of 
downtown street with hearts.

"La Mas Sexy" on the Lower East Side...

                                           I thought I had seen every kind of urban conveyance until Patrick Dube
                                            sailed by in a battery powered self balancing single wheel vehicle.

                                           Tina Trachtenburg has handcrafted several flocks of pigeons along with 
                                           pieces of pizza and the occasional cardinal.  
                                           She sets up in Union Square and several other parks around town and t's 
                                           wonderful to witness the public interaction with a large number of
                                           uncharacteristically quiet birds.
