« A Great Pumpkin |
| Reconstruction »
- Five dollars is not too much too pay for a streetcorner umbrella outside Penn Station.
- Thirty seconds is about half a minute too long to wait before realizing (1).
- Thirty-sixth Street and Seventh Avenue is a flood plain where water washes freely over storm drains and up onto the sidewalk without the slightest ripple.
- Forty-first Street and Broadway is even worse. As above, but three or four inches deep.
- Some puddles are too broad to jump without a good running start.
- Getting spashed by a car makes very little difference.
