Not long ago, I was having Saturday brunch with my friend Gretchen at Friend of a Farmer. We were eating at one of the outside tables on the sidewalk of Irving Place, which is situated between Union Square and Gramercy Park, when both of us witnessed a sight that left us dumbstruck: we saw He-Man.
At least, that's what the locals call him. There's actually a website that tracks his whereabouts.
Two days ago, I spotted him again as I was leaving my post office. I snapped this shot as he walked away so I could report the sighting. Typically, he's alone, but this time he had a friend with him. Didn't appear to be Skeletor.
On Tuesday night, my friends and I ventured out to one of the many free events that is part of NYC's River-to-River Festival, a four-month summer celebration. Every week, there are at least six public spaces where you can see a free movie outside... we opted to hit up Elevated Acre for a free viewing of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Elevated Acre is a park on top of a building in the financial district. It's glorious! Also, there was free water and popcorn. Yippee! Here are some pictures.
People I Don't Know:
Sadly, I didn't spot He-Man at the movie. Maybe if they ever show Masters of the Universe, he'll make an appearance. Until then...
