January shoppers

January 10, 2014

sales are on

It’s been very cold out, but the stores are having big sales. The solution: bundling up and hitting the stores. The urge to shop trumps staying warm.


Hands in pockets, everyone

March 18, 2013


References to spring being in the air are hereby taken back. Winter has returned and hands should be jammed in pockets when they are not carrying shopping bags. I like the guy’s plaid duffel coat, though.

Looking up Broadway

December 7, 2012

uptown, downtown

I am trying to take a break from holiday stuff, though I do find it visually compelling. If you look closely you’re sure to find some bell-ringers.

Eating corn on broadway

July 15, 2012

The Winter Garden has “Mama Mia,” people are checking their phones, and barbecue smoke rises from collapsible grills. The corn looks good, but I’m still not ready for another street fair.

Trying to look like New Yorkers

August 7, 2011

This summer I’m noticing people who, it seems, learned about NYC from watching TV then came here trying to look the part. Hipster hats, man bags, long skirts, pants tucked in boots, and so on.

First I noticed how the sun was hitting the building to the left and making the bricks a yellowish color. Then the man with the envelope appeared, and so did the guy in the yellow t-shirt and black shorts.
