Pianist in Washington Square Park
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.
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.
