Photo by myself in the village, around 12th Street and Broadway.
This photo was taken a while ago, when it was colder. For some reason I like it, perhaps because it shows the gritty side of the old New York City.
Yes, I am nuts. I have a strange nostalgia for those days when New York was much more dangerous, gritty and 'authentic'.
In comparison, the city is very safe now. You can park shiny SUVs on the street without worrying if it will be intact in the morning!
