Funny Thing Happened in New York City

Family members went to New York City to see a play. They toured 47th Street along Time Square, saw the Hershey Building, and the Letterman studio just beyond the theater. Back in July (when these photos were taken), the mayor proposed that extra dumpsters be lined and filled with water. They would be stationed around the city for people's relief. Filming on the street for "Late Night with David Letterman," Bill Murray took the first plunge in a water filled dumpster. My family caught a bit of the action while wandering by at just the right moment. That night, back home, my wife watched the bit on Letterman that she'd filmed that afternoon. You never know what will happen when you visit the Big Apple. Funny thing, that.
