I spent a few days, including the 4th of July, in NYC. It was my first time there and I was lucky enough to have friends (including the wonderful Aloha Rag New York Staff) show me around. Unfortunately, I woke up late on the 4th and missed a friendly excursion to Coney Island, so I took a cab to the corner of Broadway and W. Houston with my camera and a roll of film. I wasn't looking to go to anywhere specific...I just wanted to wander and get a feel for the amazing city.
The first photograph I took was of a stairway I walked past a few times the day I arrived. I've always been drawn to the look
of stairs but I almost always opt an the elevator...haha. I catch myself wondering where they lead, and what's on the next floor. This set was in the building that hosts Aloha Rag's Atelier.
Outside, I walked on the shady sides of the streets (it was 100 degrees out!) and couldn't help but think about how different New York was from Hawaii when I looked up.
This bicycle, or should I call it a tricycle, was parked outside of a little eatery on Mercer. It was old but still shined.
I've never heard so many honking car horns before...and I've never seen a street sign designed to stop it.
The yellow cab. Speed first, safety second.
