A sidewalk tribute to New York City

in Belgrade, Serbia...

there i was, sitting at an outdoor cafe on the pedestrian mall in belgrade (beograd), enjoying a capuccino on a drizzly saturday, when what should catch my eye

Example
but a photo tribute to new york city featuring the lyrics of the famous song - posted on a construction fence...

(more here)

Example
Start spreading the news,
I'm leaving today,
I want to be a part of it - New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it

Example
New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city that doesn't sleep

Example
And find I'm king of the hill - top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away

I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere

Example
It's up to you - New York, New York
New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
And find I'm "A Number 1," top of the list, king of the hill

Example
"A Number 1"
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it

In old New York
And if I can make it there
I'm gonna make it anywhere
It's up to you

Example
New York, New York

Amazing. If you turn just off Knez Mihailova (the pedestrian street), there are two (I think) cafes with outdoor seating areas. Both look directly at the pictures on the wall you photographed. A couple of weeks ago I was having coffee there, looking at the wall, then went over and spent some time examining the photos.

Next time you're in town, send me an e-mail. I'll buy you a beer.
