A Work in Progress, Midtown

Street Repair, Midtown
Photo by myself in the Garment District, around 39th Street and Eighth Avenue.

I was in the Garment District shopping for my sewing addiction, Tuesday afternoon. Street repair was going on above and below ground.

Can you believe that there are water mains in lower Manhattan that date from the late 1800s that are still in use? In fact, one burst in Tribeca in early August, flooding buildings and the subway.
