"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

At the Weird People Intersection

This is New York the way we love it: crazy people and shouting weirdness.
What could this big red van be hiding behind itself on this busy intersection?
Ah yes, it is the creepy old lady dressed in a hoodie, standing there for ten minutes observing you. Then she reaches into her backpack and pulls out a kitty and throws it at you while she shouts drunken people stuff such as "lawnmoaer" and "kittens".
But then the scene gets suddenly interrupted by a tall man wearing a dress and a wig obviously made of toiletpaper or used papernapkins. No one cares. Business as usual. This is New York.

    You left out the tourist wearing a fanny-pack who says something like, "Gee, Lurline. We don't see nothin' like that in Texas!"

    Otherwise, good work.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
