Taking A Break, on Sixth Avenue

Waitstaff, NYC
Photo by myself around Sixth Avenue and 35th Street, in Midtown.

What looked like restaurant cooks took a break on a street corner, last week.

I was walking to the office and these guys made a noticeable sight. I believe they were cooking for an event held later for the UN and President Obama.

Scores of streets were shut down for the UN last Tuesday, by the way. The sidewalks were hemmed in with metal barricades, to prevent pedestrian traffic. It made the commute home difficult.

Correction - A Flickr friend told me these guys actually work around the corner at a steakhouse.

In scenes like this I always wonder if there's as much sense of . . . fellowship? . . . as there appears to be. Work is often a social thing as well as labor, and these guys look very comfortable together, except for the YOUNG one eating his cell phone.
