|Broadway and 44th street, in Times Square, NY|
If you happen to traverse Times Square as a tourist the vendors and bus-guides will spot you, trying to get you to buy a t-shirt or take a tour bus. Chinese artists will draw your portrait (and you'll be thinner, instantly!) and now, they have these giant flowers set up on the sidewalk.
Stick your face in the red thing, they'll snap your photo and voila, you are a star in Times Square. I usually run in the other direction when I see these guys, but it was fun watching them while we waited for the billboard to come back up. The city is full of tourists, and when a nice couple saw me taking pictures, they dutifully did the same, so I know their friends will be asking them why they shot that picture of a billboard. And they'll say it had famous Roberta Chiarella jewelry on it, pointed out by the artist herself! Ciao.
