Here’s some more of my favorite pics from my time living in New York City.
This is the parade for the Yankees in The Canyon of Heroes after they won the World Series in 2009. C.C. Sabathia was on this float; he had several key pitching performances in the postseason that were key in the Yanks capturing their 27th World Championship.
I never knew quite what I was going to get when I stepped on a New York City train car. This was from Halloween night, 2009. I’d just gotten off of work, and I was headed home. These were two guys in drag, dressed as nurses. They were both belligerently drunk.
This is an exploded dye pack and some money, lying on the sidewalk, from when a Popular Bank was robbed. The building in which I worked shared space with this bank branch, and they were robbed three times while I was working there. There was also a Bank of America in the same building, and it was robbed once too. The guy who did this (in broad daylight, I might add) initially got away, but I heard he was caught within a few hours.
It wasn’t at all uncommon for there to be fires in the part of town where I worked. This was a building just down the street from mine, which blazed up pretty well one afternoon before the fire department came. As I was a Fire Safety Director in my building at this point, it would have been a real headache if I’d have had to deal with it. As it was half a block away, it wasn’t my responsibility.
Hoped you liked these. I’ll be back with more soon.
