Photo by myself just north of Chinatown, around Elizabeth and Broome Streets.
A group of older folks were sitting outside in the warm air. It was very humid on Friday, after a week of cooler temperatures.
I wasn't sure if I preferred the color version or the black and white. What do you think?
Well, it had to happen at some point. The 20-year old New York-based television series Law and Order will end this May 24th.
I can't say I've watched a majority of the 450+ episodes. However the show has been dependable entertainment, when not much else is on. You can flip between the classic flavor, SVU and Criminal Intent, often running at the same time.
Each episode followed the same format - a crime is committed somewhere in the city. The address is displayed as a subtitle. Gradually the detectives bring the suspect to trial, before justice is more or less served.
I'll miss seeing the film crews on the streets and the myth of New York as a dangerous city. Not to say there won't be years of reruns in our future. But you know what I mean. It's the end of an era.
