Tale of two cities.Penn on the morning of the Yankees parade - more than a million expected in lower Manhattan to see the players on floats during a long parade.

The first image was taken on the escalator coming up from the Babylon train track.

A sign of the day - Rosa's Pizza, which never opens in the morning, understood the volume of foot traffic expected and there was a long line of people at nine AM there buying draft beers.

Then, on the E train north , those going to work and away from the parade. Quieter, sober. I doubt the woman in the bottom image would trade her Prada handbag for a Yankees cap. She is also drinking a latte instead of a brewsky.

Have a great weekend.

The first half-dozen remind of, wait for it, what was called "social dancing" when I was in middle school. In some sense, the celebration of the Yankees' World Series win is the same sort of dancelike interaction; at least as I see it here.

Yes, a collective win and social event. I particularly enjoy my visits here and finding the newest quotes from the sound track of our lives. Very entertaining and enjoyed!

the images with the lights make the shapes look like they are dancing-- lots of movement-- and then there are the quiet moments.
