Bizarre New York City: At Every Turn Something Unusual

Even the squirrels in New York City are friendly! This New York squirrel in Madison Square Park was so aggressive that he climbed over the fence and then up my trouser leg looking for food. By contrast, Maine Squirrels are reserved and skittish.  

I don't know why, but I found the sight of this Home Depot
in Manhattan odd. This is hardly the normal big orange box!
I saw this in Brooklyn. Isn't this a clever way to keep your bicycle protected from the elements? 

I found this sticker on the Brooklyn Bridge.

KidRobot in Soho. Check out the link for some playful gifts. 

Is it just me or does this restaurant name seem incongruous?

I especially enjoyed the baby sticker. Also, Sac State squirrels are much like that NY one. I'm renewing my passport this month - really eyeing Italy!

Italy is wonderful! If you go to Italy try to visit a city or town off the tourist path. Rome, Florence, Siena and Venice are great places (full of tourists), but I also like to visit places that are just "normal" Italian towns. I especially like Parma. There's nothing particularly special about Parma. That's why I like it. Same thing in France. Paris is wonderful but who goes to Nancy? It's worth a visit because of its normalcy.
