Photo by myself, in Union Square.
A rapt audience listened to a woman preaching in Union Square. I was struck by the man in the hat, whose face had such wonderful shadow and highlights.
For some reason, this open area is known for political rallies, artistic performances, farmers markets and chess matches. There is always something of interest going on.

I never mentioned a client meeting I had the other day. The young couple just purchased an apartment on the Upper West Side, a beautiful duplex in a brownstone. We met in front of the building for a meeting.
The husband was boasting about his commute. 'Seven minutes on the train, two minute walk to the subway station'. But then he lamented his fate, 'Parking in the garage a block away costs 800 bucks a month!'
Leaving your car on the street is useless in Manhattan, since you have to move your car every other day. That's a lot of work. In Brooklyn, you only have to move your car once a week. (Yes, yes, it is safe in most Brooklyn neighborhoods. Your car will still be there the next morning!).
