      I was at Union Sq.

      The cops were hilarious (I mean that in a good way, they were cracking jokes about radio-ing to Batman for help with crowd control)...  there were only two of them there at first and of course nothing was planned for the spontaneous demonstration which at times blocked both westbound lanes of 14th St.  We all had fun.

      I think as long as I live I will not forget the sight of one rejoicing cab driver with an empty cab accompanied by one long steady blast on his horn going God-only-knows-how-fast down lower Fifth Ave through all the green lights.  (That feat of driving on Fifth may have been a miracle in itself.)

        And I was just sitting home on my couch sobbing. I could have been doing it in public! I always miss out on the fun.

        •  the mood at union sq (0+ / 0-)

          was "ecstatic"

          It was filled with kids from the NYU dorms who poured out into the streets screaming and running to 14th St - plus older fogies like me from the neighborhood
