On Thursday night, President Obama made an unexpected visit to the Upper West Side to dine and politick at a private residence near the Museum of Natural History. An area comprising several blocks from Amsterdam Avenue to Central Park was blocked off entirely. Some of our readers were pissed that no one could get in or out (including delivery guys!).
The photo above is of the residence where Obama dined on Columbus Avenue. The video below is of the motorcade leaving along 81st street between Columbus and Central Park West. The video slows as the president passes, in an eerie reminder of the Zapruder film. Photo and video courtesy of Shannon O’Neill.
