Paris vs. New York

Several people have sent me the link to this blog called Paris vs New York and I  absolutely love it. It doesn’t really have anything to do with mothers and children, but I thought you might appreciate it as well. I think the illustrations perfectly pick up on so many of the idiosyncrasies of Paris and New York and compare them perfectly.

My favourites are the taxis, (as it is completely true that there are never any taxis in Paris, while New York is full of them), the tips (the Parisian only leave a couple of coins, while in New York tipping is serious business) and the directors (I love the intense stare of Goddard versus the neurotic look of Woody Allen).

Which one do you like?

very cool. fyi: I am still a bit traumatized by the few taxi rides I have taken in Paris. Talk about break-neck speed!!!…they make NYC drivers look like a bunch of grandmothers… : )

Which ONE do I like? I’m the queen of indecision – what a question! Every one of them is brilliant and provocative. The taxi scene is like a New Yorker cartoon.
