I should do this more often, considering all there is to see on these New York City streets. Even in my own iPod world or simply following the same old routine -- Port Authority Bus Terminal, A (or C or E) train downtown, walking the north side of 15th Street from 8th Avenue to 9th -- there are things that stand out, things that make you say, "Only in New York." Unless you see them elsewhere.
The other day, as I passed St. Vincent Hospital's Comprehensive Cancer Center on 15th, I spotted someone who had clearly just emerged from the hospital pause to light up a cigarette.
Yesterday, from the misspelled signage file, was a store awning promoting their inventory of "LINGERIES."
I would be even better if I'd had a camera.
