Sitting Outside, on Broadway

72nd and Broadway
Photo by myself around 71st Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side.

There are fast food chain restaurants in Manhattan, like the McDonald's in the background, though not too many. You'll find burger and fried chicken chain restaurants in just about every neighborhood.

A median strip runs down the middle of Broadway, a major street that runs north-south in Manhattan. Two lanes of traffic and one bus lane run uptown and downtown on either side.

The median strip is used for plantings. Often, park benches are located at the intersections.


Temperatures on Friday were in the mid-60's. For one brief moment, in the middle of February, it felt like Spring. People were sitting outside and walking around in tee shirts.
