Earlier today we gathered New Yorkers’ memories of their random encounters with the late, great Lou Reed. This one, from our contributor Susan Keyloun, might just be the most unexpected encounter of them all.
As a native New Yorker, I tend to leave touristy things to the tourists. I have never taken a carriage ride through Central Park and I avoid Times Square. But when I was invited to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show last year, I accepted – – not a tourist destination per se, but not necessarily a place where you’ll find mobs of New Yorkers either. I could spend my time people-watching which was good enough for me.
