Anyone who has been to NYC knows that there are people all over the city giving out handbills. Mixed in with a few miscellaneous photos, is one that I got this week, hawking the services of "Gia", who can guide me to my true love as well as the right path in life. Oh, Gia, where have you been? Why did I have to learn about you in the autumn of my life, instead of the spring? I am sure you could have set me straight - and God knows I needed it!

Top right: a boat at the dock in South Street Seaport.
Bottom: The view to the World Trade Center site (2 blocks away) from the roof of the apartment building. I took the same photo in May of 2005, and if I can find it, I will post them side by side, so you can compare the progress. The construction site is dead center.
Addendum: I forgot to mention this. See the black building on the far left? It was damaged in the attack on 9/11, and is unusable. They are removing it, floor by floor. It is completely covered in a mesh screen, so nothing will fall on passersby below.
