Yay for the internet! After our post on how NYC and Dusseldorf would swap advertising space to promote each other's cities, An American in Dusseldorf, James, let us know he would take pictures of the NYC-themed ads while we'd stay on our toes for the "Visit Dusseldorf" ones that are supposed to break here later this month. The ads show NYC in all its big building and Brooklyn Bridge glory.

When translated via Babelfish, we got:"Visit themselves they the city, in that the world night football wm", but thanks to Dan, we now know it really reads "Visit the city in which the world meets - right after the World Cup". So, perhaps we'll be seeing some Dusseldorf tourists in July, as the World Cup final is on July 9. Too bad there isn't much left to Germantown anymore.
