New York City, pop culture, art and nightlife. Because nobody else is blogging about those things.

There are some advantages to working on Central Park West.

Right outside the door of my building on 77th Street, they're inflating Macy's Thanksgiving Parade balloons!

I just stood on our steps and watched the crew blowing up giant Scooby-Doo, scrambling around under his container netting as he unwrinkles and takes bulbous shape.

Meanwhile, right next to me with Scoob rising Gulliver-like in the background, a one-man-mobile-uplink-unit (well, a guy with a digital videocamera and a tripod) was recording an on-the-spot report for the, uh, what does his mike say? The "Regional News Network." He struggled comically with his 3 lines, attempting the report over and over again, and over again: "Here's where the magic happens...three, two, one...here's where the magic...three, two, one...here's where the magic happens, these...three...two...one...."

Awesome, they're unrolling giant Dora the Explorer!
