    thinking about you in....

    1-I am thinking about you in New York.

    Can't this mean two things
    a- I am thinking about how you are/were/will be in New York. (one could say this is three meanings)
    b- I am in New York and I am thinking about you.

    Gratefullly,
    Navi.

    Yes, it can mean all four of those things, depending on context.

    I agree with Probus, but I think the future meaning would be unusual.

    Maybe so, but that doesn't change the correct answer.
