There’s a hydrant (Still looking out the window)

January 25, 2013

The car moves into the illegal spot, and a new pedestrian comes by. I haven’t changed position, though.


Looking out the window (Don’t park there)

& a man in brown

That’s what I do when the weather is extreme: find a window to look out. It’s like having a private cinema.

Midtown in August

August 8, 2012

In August, the people on the street are a mix of natives getting lunch or coffee and tourists shopping and taking in a sight or two. There’s no measurement of culture consumed to justify expenditures, but maybe there should be: two hours in a museum equals a piece of clothing; three hours on the Circle Line equals a pair of shoes. If rain starts coming down during an outdoor activity…JACKPOT! Spend even more on the shoes!

The future of banking

August 6, 2012

Before it disappears, go and enjoy the vision of the future that is the Chase branch that stretches from 51st to 52nd Streets between 5th and 6th Avenues. Consider it a shortcut with overly polite bank employees stationed to say hello occasionally. The branch was built when people thought the space needed for a retail banking outlet only going to grow. The average bank in NYC is about 1/10 the size of this.

Eat a banana

Patterns are good

There’s a chance of gray in midtown, so we will welcome some patterns and color.

Someone is usually watching

July 18, 2012

Step out a door, and you might be on a security camera or… in someone’s line of vision.

Life on the side streets

June 4, 2012

The avenues get the north-south traffic and hustle-bustle, but the side streets are where people are more likely to slow down, have a chat, conduct business.

It happens without thinking, you fall into step with a friend en route to a destination. That doesn’t explain the similar handbags on the left arm or hairdos, though.

High chairs

March 25, 2012

A restaurant is probably having an event and needs more seats. The chairs were photogenic and no one was paying them any attention.
