Valerie W, November 21, 2006 at 4:02 pm Reply Alistair, Were you in New York? I love Times Square. Me of course, I go to see Musical Theatre. You seem like your interest doesn’t go there. I don’t go to the theatre to be cerebral. I guess I go so rarely, I go for rejuvenating entertainment. Mama Mia was very rejuvenating. I’m hoping to go into the city at the end of December to see A Chorus Line. My friends agency are the promo people for the show. Hope your course goes well this week. rr November 21, 2006 at 6:37 pm Reply Trippy colours! Chris November 23, 2006 at 3:40 am Reply Times Square can be such an ugly scene – it’s gaudy and represents the height of excess and personal consumption. However, you have made the scene oddly beautiful. Well done! Maryanne November 27, 2006 at 1:05 am Reply NYC is one the only places that I feel I have known before. I never get lost when I visit, and there is something so amazing, but intangible about the city. Beautiful photo. Kevin Alleger December 1, 2006 at 6:42 am Reply Hello! You might enjoy the photography of Tim Davis at davistim.com, I particularly enjoy his ‘Retail’ series, wherein the neon lights of a retail store reflect in buildings in the city.

In order to be the “right way round”…so beautiful, and yet as other commentators have said, so gaudy, so tacky, so how can one say..meretricious. Am reminded of Devil in the White City, “Let us be though over much plain and simple, even bare, rather than gaudy, flashy, cheap and meretricious”..yet the lure of the flashy can never be gainsaid. Tricky. Jitu December 5, 2006 at 4:24 pm Reply alistair, thanks so much for posting all this on your site. the essays are so inspirational..really! I feel like i’ve had similar experiences and it’s so refreshing to have something to read and relate to…! many thanks! Brian the 646 Guy January 1, 2007 at 5:31 pm Reply As a resident of NYC, I find Times Square to be alternately thrilling and depressing at the same time. However, when I am in Times Square I always think back to the day I arrived in the city and I stood on one of traffic islands that separate Broadway from Seventh Avenue and looked at all of the hullabaloo going on around me and realized that I was home…. Holly March 9, 2007 at 2:38 pm Reply I became obsessed whilst watching Cash in the Attic on BBC America a year and a half ago, and every Sunday am planted on the couch to try to catch you (there’s 5 hours’ worth on, most of them are you, the others are that wretched blonde woman… I can’t stand her). I live in Connecticut (though I’m from the West Coast US, moved here after I graduated high school five years ago), equidistant from Boston and NY. This picture is a lovely interpretation of my favorite day-trip spots! Haven’t read much of your blog yet, but I plan on it… just thought you might appreciate fan notes from other continents!
