One of the good things about the city - as against the suburbs - is that in the city one tends to walk more.
Because I have a dog I'm forced to walk somewhere four times a day which is very good for me.
So recent things seen include
- the very last leaves on a tree on 21st Street
berries on 20th Street
last yellows of of the climbing hydrangea on 20th Street too.
I can walk to Chelsea Market where the bakers at Sarabeth's were extra busy yesterday,
and later buy apples and cranberries at Union Square.
8th Avenue in the evening is utterly urban.
This last photo shows something I'm rather thankful for. They seem to have stopped adding stories to the building on the left - so we still get to see the Empire State Building. Now what on earth will happen when/if they they get planning permission to build on poor little one storey Rite Aid....?
