Even NYC mellows out on a Sunday but still, being NYC she always holds a few surprises just to keep you on your toes. Following are some images from when the day was still young.
Armed with machine guns the hyper –militarized NYPD arrive at St Patrick’s Cathedral to greet early morning parishioners arriving for mass.
Also greeting them is the intrepid author and activist Nathan Schneider whom the NYPD was not pleased to see.
The line in the middle of Fifth Ave is painted purple for the Gay Pride Parade set to commence at noon.
I have no idea what the New York House and School of Industry on 16th Street actually did but they sure had a lovely building.
On 55 Third Street one finds St Mary’s House of the Catholic Worker, once the dwelling of Dorothy Day.
At 77 Third Street one encounters the home of the NYC branch of the Hell’s Angels, once the dwelling of “Tiny.”
