Photo by myself on the Lower East Side, on Houston Street.
A deli called Russ and Daughters on Houston seems to hail from a bygone era. Their beautiful display cases are filled with smoked fishes, sardines and caviar.
The employees were so friendly, they posed for photos. And the pumpernickel bagel and whitefish I had was delicious!
Sunday afternoon, I walked around the city in the cold rain. It was a typical New York wintry day - mid-30s, drizzling and chilly. (It was miserable).
It used to be that I'd be one of a few people on the street on the Lower East Side (LES). Now the streets were nearly busy. There are many new boutiques and restaurants. A long line could be seen inside Katz's deli, waiting patiently for lunch.
