Designer bags here

April 19, 2014


There were sound effects that should accompany this picture. The man was shouting about the bags: Right here! Right now! Only $10! What are you waiting for?


Another cook on break

October 11, 2012

I’ll admit a fondness for pictures of cooks. Maybe it’s the hat or the white outfit. This one is for those of you who watch the food network and are contemplating becoming a celebrity chef. You may have to stop at 48th Street en route to the top.

Walking down the sidewalk in a shoe-scraping skirt while taking snapshots is about as dangerous as talking and texting, it’s just less common. There’s a drama happening in the background here, between the women and the man by the street.

During construction, the stairs to the AT&T store on Sixth Avenue have been replaced by a ramp. Though it’s only about 14 inches off the ground, the platform affords a new perspective on scenic, urban Sixth Avenue.

Today’s man

March 9, 2012

He dresses sharp, will make you a hot dog, and serve you a hot pretzel. But if you don’t want food, today’s man will hand hand you a napkin free of charge.

Where? Why?

February 21, 2012

Fifth Avenue is a sensory overload. It’s crowded, so attention must be paid to dodge other pedestrians. Then there are the stores with bright windows trying to distract anyone who will look. Sometimes it’s all too much.

Where’s the $&%@(# bus?

January 31, 2012

That’s a bicycle chained to the bus stop, as if to remind anyone who is waiting that there are alternative ways to get to one’s destination.
