Queuing up

… to get into the New York City public library. I complained. The tourists should stay away fm my library … so a friend kindly kid me: “Irene, did they say stay away from my country?”
Ehrrr … you got a point …
But, that doesn’t stop me from complaining -:)

周末一笑 和几个美国人吃饭 俺吐苦水 – 游客来我们的图书馆干什么呀?挤死了. 请不要来!
现在图书馆请个专人把门 “游客止步” 我们看书的空间.
其中一人戏称 “人家有没有说不要来俺的国家?”
哈哈哈
真是的喔
不经大脑 哈哈哈
还是会抗议滴 …

Anyone still remembers Limelight the disco? Not sure what came between them but the church now is a gym.

The top floor is still my favorite. It’s now the service desk. They need a bar up there -:)

NYC library is packed


My goodness, the NYPL so packed that I’ve to wait on line to get in! The librarians are not too happy about this either.

Do the tourists know that we the locals do come here to do our research, read a book, newspaper, magazine, etc. … The reading room 315 is so so packed.

Walked a total of 8.4 miles ..
