City on a Holiday

With all of the hoopola regarding the Republican convention, it appears that New Yorkers are taking a holiday. My strolls through mid-town Manhattan were an utterly spartan experience.

The street closings are massive and pervasive. Streets that remain open feature traffic officers and cones. It's so controlled as to purge the experience of the fun. In many respects, it is a quiet conservative city this week. It is not New York.
