Wordless Wednesday — 3am in Times Square

BlogHer10 New York City Times Square

Susan making friends in Times Square at 3am

It is bizarre. New York City is REALLY the city that never sleeps! 3am in Times Square felt like the middle of the day. The lights lit up the entire square — I took this photo without a flash! People milled about, eating, sitting at tables, and horse-drawn carriages looked for their next fare. I only wish the stores were open all night too!

Don’t forget about our BlogHer 2010 Link Up. You can link up as many #BlogHer10 posts as you like. And make sure you click over and read other BlogHer recaps and posts.

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

Now I am kicking myself for actually getting a few hours of sleep at BlogHer and not wandering around more. Oh well, next time.

And I’m totally kicking myself that I didn’t see you guys while there! :(

Crazy that it’s that bright out at 3am! No wonder NYC never sleeps–it’s too bright! :)

20 Jessie August 18, 2010 at 7:11 am

Wow. I have always wanted to go there. Hearing all of the blogs that I visit talk about their awesome times make me know I want to have a girl weekend there someday. Probably with my girls :)

And so does the horse :)

Wow, awesome! It’s been a long time since I was out that late. Well, except for last Wed when i had false labor…a week later and still no baby. Today’s my due date, but this girl is working on being fashionably late.

Love the Blogher pics and stories. Thanks for sharing :)
