I love the immediacy of walking in New York. The city rushes by in a smear of lights, cars, pavement. Everyone is in a hurry to get somewhere. Or so it seems.
Not me. I’m going nowhere in particular with a camera banging at my hip and I like it this way.
To eat grilled corn
and a falafel sandwich for a Midtown breakfast.
To visit the deKooning retrospective at MoMA and photograph behind the gallery walls
then wander through Chinatown
the next day, before leaving the city.
To find Sol LeWitt’s structures in City Hall Park
before a walk to Zuccotti Park in the Financial District
to witness Occupy Wall Street.
To end with a quick stop at Babycakes for Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies filled with Vanilla Frosting before driving home. Until next time, New York.
