Spent a few hours visiting a relative in Manhattan. Some pictures (many taken from the car I was a passenger in).

It was a hot day in New York. An afternoon shower made things wet, but it was still hot. Thanks for looking.

It doesn't look that hot, judging by the clothes of the man in #8, although #6 proves the contrary. TFS Winston

It was over 90F in the early afternoon. The showers reduced the temperature by about 10F. It was much more tolerable, but the warm temperature certainly is a hallmark of the NYC summer. There is one show on Broadway at the moment (Springsteen). Hamilton re-opens in September; Dear Evan Hansen in December. I hope the delta variant (and other variants) do not force more closures, but it appears that the vaccines are much less effective with this variant than the ones that came before it. Fingers crossed. Too many people and businesses have been negatively affected. Not only here, but worldwide. Hoping and praying for the best. Thanks for the comment.

Yeah this past weekend the Dewpoint was 74F, which is swamp-like. I'm in Georgia for work and Atlanta is much less humid than NYC

We didn't "flatten the curve" last year, so the virus is doing what viruses do, mutating ...

10 the up-angle is very well done, and I like the bike shots, especially all the yellow in 12 (and blur)

I was hoping to spend more time walking about, but the quick visit to the city was really to set up new computing equipment for an elderly relative in preparation for paperwork to be initiated and completed. The city is not as crowded as I am accustomed seeing it. Quite a few small shops seem to have closed. These are interesting times. Thanks for the comment.
