Spitzer Stakeout

Unless you’ve been hiding somewhere, or are coming to this site from another country, you’ve probably been hearing the news about New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and his current scandal.

This isn’t a forum that I want to use for politics, but it does turn out that he has an office that is on my way to work.  This morning, as I approached the corner of 41st Street and 3rd Avenue, I saw some news trucks.  I happened to have my camera with me so I took some quick pictures, but wasn’t too expectant of anything (thinking it was just some little news story or human interest event going on that I’d never know anything about). 

I didn’t know that the Governor had an office there until I came home from work and mentioned that two news crews had apparently spent the whole day at this relatively obscure corner.  The doorman told me that there’s a long-time office for him there.  Apparently, Spitzer has been hiding out all day in NYC and there’s speculation that he’s in this office.

I wish I had taken better pictures.  There was one camera crew in evidence and two trucks.  First, Channel 11 (independent).

Second, Channel 5 (Fox) was also there.

I didn’t use my flash so the focus wasn’t very successful.

Anyway, it goes to show that there are interesting things nearly everyplace in NYC and that I oughta be a little more careful when I take a picture when the sun ain’t fully up.
