Riding Along Lafayette Street, in Soho

Lafayette Street, NYC
Photo by myself on Lafayette Street and Bleeker Street.

Many stores and restaurants were closed on Sunday, New Year's Day.

People were walking around, regardless. Mark, Rupert and I went into the city, since it was sunny and felt oddly like Spring. The brave couple above rode their bikes in traffic, without helmets.


It used to be that Lafayette Street felt like the edge of the world.

Lafayette is a wide-ish street that runs north-south. Pedestrians are sensitive to the width of streets, and some of the stores along Lafayette were industrial and not inviting. Walking around Soho, you used to get to Lafayette, then stop and turn around.

Not so, today. There are clothing stores and eateries along the street. Soho continues, east of Lafayette, with more fancy boutiques.

I live in rural Oklahoma and although I have travel to some places in Europe I have never been to NYC. I would love to visit someday but until then your photos are the next best thing. I love the daily life and scenes you photo. Thanks, Cheri
