NY Pic of the Week – 08.23.2011

New York — it’s fabulous, glittery, dark, intimidating, spectacular, and full of every type of person imaginable, from the one who fixes your shoes to the one who designs them. It is this multi-faceted-ness that Pic of the Week explores, each time focusing on a different snippet of New York City life. Sometimes these snippets get lost in the rush, the mayhem, the bustle — other times they’re right out in plain sight, paraded down Fifth Avenue. In any case, each is essential to life in this city of ours, and it’s here that each gets its 15 minutes of fame.



No, you haven’t been magically transported to Venice — it’s The Lake in Central Park! For $12 you can rent a rowboat and row about for an hour. Or for a little extra, you can hire this gondola (don’t ask me how much — I only knew about the rowboats until I saw the gondola).
