I met Elmo on the street and my attempts at conversation went arwy (see track below).
In Times Square, scalpers were common. They called out their tickets for the night and pitched how good the seats were to tourists.
In Central Park there were many buskers, and the track below is of an erhu playing Ave Maria. It seemed like two worlds colliding, but the erhu had a wonderful lyrical quality that even made his accompanying boombox accompaniment sound good.
The track below is Times Square on a Sunday night. The place was packed and as bright as day. Noisy, light, flashing and overwhelming.
