On Hipsters and Rupert, Downtown

Hipster, NYC
Photo by myself at Houston Street and First Avenue, on the Lower East Side.

A photo from last weekend, in front of Yonah Schimmel, a knishery that first opened in 1890.

Catching sight of a hipster fellow in this spot was just dumb luck. Both the haircut and the signage harken back a few decades.

The above was taken a couple weekends ago, during a long walk in town. This past weekend, we did almost nothing, since Mark was laid up with a bad back. He is now extremely crooked, and the smallest movements issue groans of pain. Poor kid.

Anyway, see below for another photo from the same walk. We found a little painting of a Boston Terrier named 'Pickles', outside the Alias Restaurant.

Rupert obliged me with a pose. He is not 'breedist', however, and treats all dogs pretty much equally.

Rupert may not be breedist, but he is obviously related to Pickles.

Rupert poses very well, he looks much nicer than the painting.

Shame on me for forgetting to stop by and visit Rupert. I love hearing about New York dogs and what they get up to. And besides he's so darned handsome and worthy of his own blog!
No posts for a while - is he OK? Have I missed something. Hugs to Rupert
