2nd Ave Deli
88 Laight, not as acclaimed as its neighbors but pretty cool for having "solarail" balconies. Apparently the glass on the balconies is made of some kind of solar panel. There's more on the building's website.
There used to be a big sign on the building about Solarail, that's how I knew about it.
The usual suspects

This is a crappy hip shot, out of focus, etc but since I'm always looking for people pictures that show some kind of emtion, I'm at least pleased with the body language in this. They don't need to be in focus to recognize the emotional dynamic.
For what it's worth, this is Greenwich Ave across from Benny's. On zooming in I'm not sure the person in blue is entirely a woman.

I'm really pleased with how this came out. I took a few, with different crowds and configuations of people but I like how the people are spaced in this one and I like that they each almost have their own story. Even the bicycle and the hydrant look like they have a story.

Wheels on fire
I can't remember if I've photographed this before - or something like it. The flame-looking color is cast in the wheel rubber. Very neat.
Truck stop in Connecticut. Fox News on the TV, gambling screens at the counter, NASCAR jackets in the store area. It's like a wormhole to Alabama.
I wish I could remember the name. Something like "Food America."

It has horns
Under the tree
I don't know, it was something about the colors. For some reason every storfront and building facade looked good to me this weekend. Even with cars in front.
32nd and 5th Ave
I can't think of the last time I walked up 5th Avenue. I took this on the way to take some shots of the new 2nd Ave Deli and was really amazed at all the cool buildings in the area. Cool old hotels, some great old row houses. It only makes sense, it's an old part of town. Still, we don't think of it because it's all in the shadow of the Empire State Building.

Red Mango opening on Bleeker near MacDougal
This guy just walked right up and stood in the doorway like he was in charge of the place. Eventually he wandered off with some addled muttering. If he's been in the neighborhood for as long as it looks like he has, I can't even imagine how many places he's seen come and go in this storefront on Bleeker near MacDougal. What does he see when he looks in that door?
That corner is now a seafood restaurant but I still see the poster shop that was there in the late 80s/early 90s.

N6th Street Art Gallery
I haven't been down this block in a couple weeks so these may not be new but given the activities of "the splasher" it's best to shoot these things quick before they disappear.

Everything's opening at once!
It's like Spring!
Lokal is open
Lokal is open
That new Japanese place on Bedford, Mizu is open:
Miranda didn't open yet but it got a sign:
And it looks like I missed a couple. Alia opened, if you can believe that, and a new place with no name across the street from it.

I once saw a series of photographs of common American small town (not cute-small, just not city) intersections and parking lots. I was amazed that the photographer was able to see beauty in these settings. Even though I still thought the parking lot was ugly I could appreciate his application of an artistic eye to the setting. Anyway, whenever I'm in a setting where I wish there was either more trees or more concrete I think of that photo series and try to see a picture.
