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.
