My daughter "L" called me this evening to tell me she was going to The Shake Shake tonight with some friends after work, since the weather here in NY has been unseasonably warm. The Shake Shack is an outdoor fast food restaurant in Madison Square Park in Manhattan, and it has a web cam view of the line of people waiting to give their order. It's fun to take a peek and see "L" when I know she'll be there!
A really interesting web cam is one in Times Square, NYC that shows different views of the "Great White Way." It even has actual audio so you can hear street sounds. If you stand outside the TGI Friday's restaurant on 7th Ave and 50th St. you can be on the web cam close up street shot. Quite a few tourists seem to know this, and sometimes you'll see people stop and wave and call someone on their cell phone to tell them to to take a look.
There are lots of other web cam link views of NYC, and more, on New Yorkology.
Go take a peek!
