The Little Lebowski Shop opened up in the West Village about 3 years ago after its owner, who was on the verge of eviction after running a failed comic book shop, started displaying his Lebowski memorabilia in the front windows. It had been a year since I last went and this weekend I walked by totally expecting (in a sad way) for it to have gone out of business, but the Dude abides.


That this store is still open makes me feel very secure. It makes me feel very warm inside.

The Lebowski poster is signed by the cast and is selling for $3,000+, if you happen to have a fuckin' million fuckin' dollars sittin' in the trunk of your car

The rug, and Jesus, really tie the room together.

The best surprise in re-visiting the store: they've got a marmot!

Last time I went, bought a t-shirt that said JESUS with Jesus Quintana licking his bowling ball. The first day I wore it, people gave me really weird looks, before I realized it was Easter.

For more than 3 years, I’ve been a regular customer at @ThinkCoffeeNYC . I was always confused why so many Asian tourists (busloads) would come by to obsessively photograph the place as if it were Strawberry Fields or Times Square. The New York Times finally has the answer: A Coffee Shop, as Seen on TV, Becomes a Must-See for South Koreans

The video posted above is an absolute riot.

The West Side Highway as clouds clear after a storm in time for the sunset. I like rainstorms in the summer anywhere, but they seem especially beautiful — before, during, and after — in New York

Another photo along Manhattan’s west side after the rain. I saw this guy with the red umbrella and his family from about two blocks away and waited for him to walk in front of me. I wish I had taken a closer picture with tighter framing of him and his umbrella, especially since he and his family asked me to take photos of them with their own cameras.

West Village: Another (unused) product shot for proof shorts (proofny.com). We needed a bike shot to illustrate how the shorts work well in more active situations so we just borrowed a bike and found one of the nice brick streets on the west side.
Read more about the shorts here: message me if you’re interested in a discount code.
