Morning Walk #35 - Union Square Park
64 degrees and sunny. A perfect first day of summer!
The pink & blue matching houses on 15th Street
The ever present construction...this time with a huge crane hoisting supplies to the 6th floor of a new building
Interesting architecture at 33 Irving Place, built in 1909
A television crew setting up a shoot
Ichabod's on Irving Place...with an entrance labeled Headless Horseman in stone carved letters
Another restaurant "Closed by Order of the Commissioner of Health & Mental Hygiene". An official sign on the door and the front window under which someone has taped another sign: "Closed due to Refrigeration Problems" --- That would be some serious refrigeration problems.
A man in the park wearing a hat presumably of his own design...it looks like lots of colorful plastic bags were tied together to make a huge Afro sort of plastic wig
I'm just thinking I never see the same people in the park when the cantaloupe eating man walks to a bench and pops open his container of cantaloupe chunks
An Irish-sounding woman asks me to take a couple photos of her on her iPhone. I try to pose her in the foreground of the sign she wants included in the shot...but she wants the standard tourist photo of a distant tiny figure in front of the park sign
I make a few purchases at the GreenMarket after dropping off my compost
I see that time has flown and the pet store is opening so I stop in to buy some pet food. The woman behind me in the checkout line is buying a "cute" rat for her fiancé...
