Yearly party

The tax nite at 32nd and 8th, site of the main post office, is party-time. Tonight, even though the building was draped and undergoing the transformation into the new Penn Station, the party was loud as usual, with drums, hot food stands, cops, barricades, and the usual share of people outside giving out flyers for whatever cult they believed. The mass, NY's ordinary, was there, playing the script from previous years, walking into the noisy lines, bartering for stamps, jostling to get things stamped, walking away with relief. Btw, the Rangers fans were around as well, celebrating the 7-0 over Thrashers.
