The above photo comes to us courtesy of a retweet by @obitsman from an original tweet from@dmataconis.
I would say the photo was definitely taken from one of the side streets where the Macy's Thanksgiving Day balloons are inflated and staged for entry into the stream of the parade that starts on Central Park West, which as any New Yorker knows, is really 8th Avenue, north of Columbus Circle. Central Park West does sound a good deal better, and likely, because it really is west and adjacent to Central Park at that point, has been contributing to real estate prices for years now.
The original Tweeter commented:
- What happens at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade stays at the Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade.
Others have added:
- Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
- You Can Do That with Children Watching?
- The Economy Really Is Bad, Isn't It?
- I Never Knew That About Uncle Sam. Spider Man, Maybe.
This could be like one of those New Yorker cartoon contests where you get to add your own tag line and hope they will choose your entry. Only here, you can add anything you want and no one will reject you.
I like that part.
