no human being is illegal; images of civil society protest action in NYC

Human rights activists in NYC joined our rally.
More than a dozen police cars lined up outside the UN Headquarters
in anticipation of our protest action.

The United Nations Headquarter in NYC. It's in First Street. Our group gathered in a plaza across the UN to protest migration policies across the globe.

billboards and bollywood on broadway

two bollywood bombshells strutting their stuff on broadway.

when i read the readers' digest report that NYC people are one of the most polite in the whole world I could not believe it because of all the things i see in movies and read in all the news. everytime NYC comes to mind i think of muggers but the reader's digest story was correct, at least based on my encouters with the locals. i was lost several times in the subway and the people are very helpful and accommodating. i guess they're afraid i'm one of the suicide bombers so they were forced to help me out haha

billboards galore on broadway. good thing they do'nt have tropical typhoons there or else MMDA will smash 'em to bits.

my NYC trip (central park west and broadway)

remember the color purple? it's now a musical on broadway. the ubiquitous oprah produces this musical based on the pulitzer-prized winning book. shot this pic at the corner of 53rd and broadway. that meant i walked for ten blocks from YMCA West!

P.Diddy in the house! Billboards in Broadway.

West side of Central Park. Remember Kate and Leopold. You'd see a lot of horse-drawn carriages, T-shirt hawkers, and tons of homeless people. Guess what? QMC Park is way cleaner.

CNN Center in NYC. It's about 5 minute-walk from YMCA West in 63rd Street where I stayed for 8 days last September 2006.
