Thank you for the link. I love this man and his accent is my favourite American accent - actually I think it's just my favourite accent.

Thanks. I think Bill Cunningham gives a nice view and commentary on of-the-moment Manhattan. Of course no one expects tourists to dress this way, although some may.

NYC is such a fashion capital, an artistic and creative capital that you usually see well dressed people on the streets. Also many other forms of dressed people. Yesterday I saw an older woman riding a bike near Columbus Circle with the much of her bike and her bike basket covered with artificial flowers and a dog in it. Lots of people were waving as she passed by and she had a big smile on her face. She looked good!

Visitors should check Cunningham just to keep up with NYC!

Bill C is fabulous these video vignettes are a delight, and I thought the documentary about him was a gem.

I actually met him the other day...well sort of...unfortunately I wasn't cool...it was on Wed 2nd Jan if you want to look up my Trip Report for details.

I love his photos as well as his commentary.

I'm curious though. His accent? I have read that he was born in Boston and then moved to New York aged around 19. Is his accent Bostonian?
