I love the grit, too--especially the graffiti.

That's one of the reasons that make NYC a colorful place :)

These make me think of the fact that no matter how much I complain about the place I live in, I'll still love it all the same. Happy WW.

Hi Neighbor Marcia, yes pretty gritty. Except for the little group who play for us in the subway. [In Paris, they are on the cars, sitting at the back or front of one, just playing away.]

For you March 21 post, I checked out (Googled) the bottom picture, the oval sign saying "SEMO."

They are on the fire trucks that carry water to the fire site.

Happy WW! Thank you for the nice visit and comment.
