On the way walking home by good luck I saw an elusive Google Maps Street View car parked on W.30th St. that had driven all the way from California to New York City, notice the high-tech equipment and California plates, highly-interesting!

I hope nobody breaks in the car, often happens when equipment is left in parked cars in New York City (happened 6 times to me personally)

*note: as soon as I started taking pictures of the Google Maps Street View mobile car, other people started to also and soon there was a crowd of people taking pictures
check the hefty cables:

Jon Hammond for Alcatel-Lucent / Bell Labs: “On stage, on television or on the radio waves 
everyday I feel lucky because I’m ALWAYS ON! Jon HammondMusician, television personality and radio broadcaster Jon Hammond boarded a Concorde in 1981 to travel from New York to Paris at supersonic speed, and he never slowed down.Jon travels the world, touring in Europe and Asia two or three times each year while broadcasting his “HammondCast” morning radio show seven days a week. At home in the United States, Jon splits his time between New York City and San Francisco and performs four to five concerts each month at local hospitals, nursing homes and prisons. His cable television program, “The Jon Hammond Show,” is in its 25th year and going strong.”In my business, it’s essential to be contactable 24/7. I couldn’t organize as much as I do without being ALWAYS ON.” Inspired by the Beatles and fascinated by the radio (he built a crystal radio at the age of five), Jon knew he was destined to be a musician. Although that’s a departure from tradition – Jon’s father and grandfather were physicians – Jon carries on the family business in his own way by performing in some of the very hospitals where his father once practiced medicine.”I’ve seen people get out of their wheelchairs and dance more times than I can count, so I’m happy I can make a difference playing for those who are less fortunate than me.”Jon has not forgotten those who opened doors for him when he was first starting out in music and broadcasting, and now he uses his radio and cable television shows to do the same for deserving young talent.Like Jon, we at Alcatel-Lucent are passionate about connecting people through communications technology. In our Bell Labs locations around the world, we’re working on new and exciting innovations in next-generation broadband technology to ensure people like Jon can find even more creative ways to share music, moments and memories.
