New York City--May 1-2

It was a typical weekend for native New Yorkers--a rally in government center to protest Arizona's stringent new immigration enforcement law, a car bomb that failed to detonate but closed Times Square and the surrounding theater district for a few hours, and a mass demonstration against nuclear weapons at the UN plaza. As the police were out in full force and visible everywhere, New Yorkers just went about their business. The subways were mobbed, the stores were crowded. We couldn't find an empty table in Herald Square to stop and take a break. Shoppers even lined up Sunday morning waiting for H&M and others to open. No fear. This is life if you live in New York City. And it's always exhilarating to visit.
