Nice to see you back on here.

I kinda miss your old photo threads about Montreal and their loud protests.
I like the way you shoot chaos on purpose.

If you were here in Paris at the moment, you'd be overwhelmed, lol.
It's been a mess for their pension reform. For example, some districts went through a strike by garbage collectors ; it was simply terrible.
I'm telling you, you and your cam would be busy here.

That was refreshing. It's always nice to take a little detour from a busy day to take in the sights of New York City.

Pelham 1-2-3 was a film reference to the 6 train in the Bronx, which (in the 1970's film) was hijacked by some Euro dudes. In the remake, it was John Travolta. It's called the Pelham line because it terminates at Pelham Bay Park.

Pelham, NY is an affluent suburb on the other side of Pelham Bay Park.

Love it! I'm looking forward to being back on the East Coast soon for more frequent visits to New York. Easy access between DC & NYC via Amtrak/Acela!

Haven't seen you in a while, mr. John. These shots make me want to charge up the battery for my old Nikon. Very nice.

Wow, you're all over town. Great pics.

Now I'm craving some Ecuadorian or Colombian food on Roosevelt Ave.

Really nice thread! Wow.

Are you a tourist, or did you move there? Looks like you're based there now, not merely visiting.

If you moved there, I'm curious to know your opinion regarding the pros and cons of NYC when directly compared to Montreal.

Unfortunately I'm stuck in the land of "Bonjour-Hi", plus even if I wanted to work in the states my chances of getting a green card are 0.0, your very lucky to have real-estate in the U.S. it makes you a north American citizen (excluding Mexico of course)

^ Bonjour alone would be better, right?

Thanks for posting your pictures anyway.
I like the red Asian house in the 1st photo. It would look great in downtown Paris.
