[Times Square Photo: Francisco Diez]
It's funny, Times Square has to be one of my least favorite New York 'hoods, but I love the way this photo captures the sense of being in certain parts of New York City.
The energy! The ambition! The excitement! The cheerfully wasteful excess as bazillions of kilowatts are unleashed solely to promote mindless consumerism!
Though I'm sorry, if you are a certain age, this location may have tripped a few rusty switches in the memory banks. Massive apologies if I have subjected you to Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert debating country versus city living in one of the most annoying tv theme songs earworms ever. Or is it just me who can't see "Times Square" without hearing:
"Times Square!" ?
(Which then leads to the worst couplet of all:
"You are my wife..."
"Goodbye, city life!"
...but we'll save that rant for another time).
Eva Gabor: Not Exactly a Feminist Icon
Anyway, so what does New York City have to do with health and fitness?
