All New York’s a stage
: Yesterday, I’m walking through Times Square by the office and I see some folks staring up Broadway at a flatbed truck surrounded by a few cops and camera trucks. The truck passes. Oh, Bono is playing. Shrug. Another day in the center of the universe.
: The other day, I’m walking through Rockefeller Center and I see a squad of burly guys in hard hats trying to look still-macho as they climb up the Christmas tree with bundles of lights. It’s beginning to look a lot….
: This morning, I’m walking to work from the PATH by Macy’s and I see that they’re ready for the Thanksgiving Day parade. The street is painted with the logo and here’s the majorette’s-eye view of the cameras.
All New York’s a stage and all its people merely extras.
