Fun at the Fountain

Everyone knows that there are weirdos a plenty in New York City. I saw plastic flowers in hair, the ugliest outfits ever, and so many more oddities. The one I particularly enjoyed was this man below:

searching for coins

It was no surprise to see someone digging coins out of the fountain, but this man had no intention of holding onto them for himself. He wanted to hit the top of the fountain with them.

throwing coins and trying to hit top of fountain . . i think

We weren't the only ones laughing, but after watching for a few minutes, I decided I wanted to try myself. He happily obliged, handing me a coin and saying "Be my guest".

throwing coins, too!

So where weirdos and funky smells abound, fun can also be found! (Can you tell what I don't love about the city?) :)

I maintain that besides New Orleans, NYC is THE smelliest place on earth - especially in the summer. Unbearable!!
