Elephant parade

How do they get the elephants to the circus in the middle of the big city? They walk them right through town late at night so that no one sees.

(Except for the thousands of us waiting with cameras, that is.)

Virgin no more

I never thought I would be so sad to see the closing of a major corporate establishment, but the death of the Times Square Virgin Megastore is truly a significant loss. Not only was it my favorite place to go in the area, it was also the largest music and entertainment store in the world. Fitting for Times Square.

Now that the Virgin Megastore in Union Square is closing too, there will be no major music retailers left in all of New York City. Will this help the many struggling independents left in the area? Or is the passing of Virgin a sign of more to come?
