Headed to NYC this afternoon, but not staying in Midtown, where this holga was taken, and where I’ve spent so much time over the last couple of years that it’s starting to feel like home. It’s close to Bryant Park and my favorite office away from the office, plus I know where all the drugstores are.
Instead I’ll be staying near Union Park, on the edge of the East Village, near Teddy’s birthplace, close to the only Louis Sullivan in New York and alongside the pub where O’Henry wrote the Gift of the Magi. And just around the corner from where the statue of John Wilkes Booth’s brother Edmund playing Hamlet adorns Gramercy Park.
(And yes: I’ve been reading the guide book. ;)
Working of course, but may be able to squeeze in a walk or two. Stay tuned.
