a mellow yellow nyc street scene



























it's hard to capture a quiet moment in manhattan but these two just seemed to be in their own little world, somehow isolated from all of the surrounding hustle and bustle.
my last mellow yellow post also happened to include a pedicab. for more of all things yellow, please visit mellow yellow monday.

Great post for the day and I do love the yellow pedicab! Not something I ever thought that I would see in New York! Great post for the day, Lily!

Vehicles are a natural for MYM and this picture is fabulous! As wonderful as Long Island is, glad you head over to the "island" on occasion!

I saw your title before the photo downloaded and thought I'd get to see a long line of yellow NY cabs... this was a nice surprise! Cute. Happy MYM!

Cycle rickshaws are still allowed here ?
In many countries they are being banned.
In India you find them only in Calcutta now.

I am not sure how I feel about the pedi-cabs .. EXTREMELY expensive ...riding in insane traffic ... no A/C ... but you do get to see and be seen .. neat shot

I love how the yellow colors pop out. That's a great shot!

This is great. It reminds me of driving my semi and listening to Howard Stern. When Chairman Jiang Zemin was speaking at the United Nations, Howard Stern said, "Somebody call that guy and tell him I want him to pull me around Manhattan in a rickshaw."

Sorry I've been slow to comment lately, Lily. I'm rebuilding my site and it's down right now. Checking out your pics is a nice break from the run-around I've been getting from my old host.

The pedi cab drivers are so strong to be working in all this heat and humidity aren't they?

Hope your son has a very happy birthday visit to Coney Island!

Lots of lovely yellow vehicles, Lily. I work just up the street and I can attest that it rarely looks this calm here at 5th and 42nd!

There were no rickshaws when I was there but I think they look so cool in such a multicultural city!

On a searingly hot day like this, this poor guy is more than earning every buck he makes.
