Remembrance, on 15th Street

Wreath, 15th Street, New York
Photo by myself around 15th Street and 8th Avenue, in Chelsea.

A white wreath and photo paid tribute to a man named Mario, who passed away just a few days ago. A sign nearby announced the funeral service.

One might be surprised that there are funeral homes in Manhattan. Just about every neighborhood has one.

Most people do not own cars in New York, and local funeral homes allow entire neighborhoods to come together to pay respect.

Awww... this makes me a little sad. He didn't look too old. It's nice that a community is free to come together and celebrate his life, though.
