and sometimes other places
The lttle girls ethnic custumes are darling. I recall similar dresses with vest worn by the Polish for Memorial Day parades in hometown of Manville, N.J. many years ago when I was growing up. I like the photos of the ethnic signs and the festivities. Nice New York blog.
I think I love the people under the umbrella shot the most but it's always hard to choose, all your shots have something wonderful to offerlooks like a great day!
What a lovely day out! An oompah band? I've never heard an oompa band before. It appears people are enjoying the music. I've no idea what a Bohunk is, but I'm too afraid to ask... a wonderful post Elizabeth. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend. Happy Memorial Day to you :)
What a wonderful event - thanks for taking us along!
Looks like fun! What is a bohunk? ( I am not afraid to ask!)
I would just love to go here. My kind of food, you know.Catherine
Wait a minute, itsn't that there Bohunk Robert? What is a Bohunk exactly?
Wonderful .. so did the Bohunk know you took his photo?
Around the world on a subway ride ... love the umbrella shot, the ambiance at the tables there.
Oh, what a lovely stroll...would love to have spent the afternoon in the biergarten and danced the Chicken Dance!
I love all your shots! Looks like a beautiful day, the costumes on the kids are so colorful! New York at it's best!Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!
that little gal is very cute!!your place is simple amazing !! i loved all ur pics
Great shadows & pics Elizabeth!! We have a small festival in July right across from our house in the park - always a fun time!
Yes, that is Bohunk Robert.A Bohunk is someone who comes from Bohemia, an area in the Czech Republic.It is not considered insulting --just a name.When he was three or four his grandma told him to tell everyone he was a Bohunk.
Elizabeth, Elizabeth.......I have so much fun with your blog...thanks a lot. But today...I laugh tears...as a German who has lived in Bavaria before emigrating to Hamburg - which I love much more than Munich...its so strange to find all this european/czech/bavarian events you show us from NY. Bohunk...I googled it...and his big hands ;-)))))...and the word "OOMPTAH-Music"...I sent it to my friends...we have great fun.Looking forward to your kind of view in and about NY....thanks a lot...Claudia from Hamburg
Great pics - thanks.
great photos,we have an event like this every fall in a town called Hot Springs....Barb
Everyone looks in holiday mood - is this weekend a holiday weekend in New York too?
Isn't it wonderful when everyone gathers for one of these events and has a great time. Happy SSS!
LOL! Love the photos, especially the one of the handsome guy in the white shirt in the subway.Paz ;-)
Oh, I thought a bohunk was a particularly good looking male companion........with large hands of course.
First and last photo are awesome. Thanks for taking us on a tour of NY.
ah as always such a TREAT...you know, living where i live, i pretend i am there in New York...one day one day i am going to be there for real...thanks for transporting me into another realm of our beautiful and delightful world...xxx j
Love those those sweet costume. Looks so much fun :P
Fabulous images! The subway looks so shiny and clean in your pic. What is a Bohemian toast? Surely they don't say Cheers. Do they?
After a quick google, I found this: Not to the Future, nor to the Past;No drink of Joy or Sorrow;We drink alone to what will last;Memories on the Morrow.Let us live as Old Time passes;To the Present let Bohemia bow.Let us raise on high our glassesTo Eternity - the ever-living Now.
haha! love that place--and your pictures capture it wonderfully--love the band!!
So many posts to catch up on since my last visit Elizabeth. Loved them all, particularly the window reflections and squares. You so oftenphoto things one would not think of and they make a great picture. Sign of a great photographer.
What a beautiful trip , and just by taking the subway. NYC is so full of surprises
Is "Bohunk" a Bohemian Hunk?I also wanted to see your big plate of Czech food!BTW, the area of Texas that I grew up in was full of Germans and Czechs. My mother once won a kolache making contest.
I look forward to hearing from you!
