A stroll downtown in late September, when the bull could still pretend it had brass balls, what's left of little Italy was celebrating, and NYU students were bakin' for Barack. (Nikon)

Random Shots Around New York City, October 2008



Random photographs taken in New York City over the course of the summer that give me, at least, a sense of my time there: a poster of Ruth Orkin's "American Girl in Italy" in a little food shop on 1st Avenue; oatmeal and fresh berries for breakfast on the roof of the Yale Club; looking up from Vanderbilt Ave.; eroded iron covers on 2nd Ave.; Madame de Pompadour reading the New York Times in Corrado on 72nd; medical supplies with flags and falling stockings on 72nd and 2nd; the Little Mermaid on 5th Ave.; a redtail hawk chowing down outside a 17th floor window overlooking 57th Street; sunset on 57th; firemen pay tribute to themselves, never forgetting 9/11; and the FBI remembers its own with a plaque in the field office at 26 Federal Plaza. - Chris
