Family promotions

July 12, 2011

Some families have a tendency toward adornment. The girls in this family advertise their devotion for Justin Bieber, that’s how I can tell they are from out of town. A teenaged girl in NYC would not declare her feelings for the singer on a shirt.


Crossing Broadway

April 28, 2011

We have accepted spring and shed most of our cold-weather clothing. What to wear now, though? Cardigans, shorts, flip flops, sun dresses, sunglasses, and baseball caps are favorites, worn according to gender and tolerance to sun and cold.

Prufrock on Broadway

December 4, 2010

These stick-on letters are on the door of a deserted store on Broadway in the 50’s. They seem a likely reference to the last line of T.S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J.

That is real hair

April 6, 2010

He’s a hair-hopper from John Waters’ movie “Hairspray.” Kid, you’re not in Baltimore! But if you’re aiming for Broadway, walk straight ahead for a block, take a left, and you’ll be there in no time.

Eighth Avenue bar

February 22, 2010

Brasserie Athenee is about as close to sidewalk dining as one can get without being outside. 90 minutes of God of Carnage drove me here, to the bar. The play’s original cast is long gone; people in the audience were either guffawing or could not believe they had spent money to watch the show, which was like a mediocre TV sitcom with cursing. The Athenee was a find, though, and the evening was partly salvaged. (In the background, the you can see the giant neon sign of the Scientology center.)

Contractor tries out the bike lane

January 12, 2010

Seems to work pretty well, this bike lane on Broadway, though you don’t see that many cyclists using it yet.
