Photo by myself at 50th Street and Fifth Avenue.
I wish I could say this fellow was presenting me with money, but alas, it was not the case. He was making change for a customer, out of frame.
There are loads of visitors right now in the city, and street food carts on the sidewalks at all hours. This cart sold large pretzels, hot dogs and drinks. In the wintertime, many carts also sell hot chestnuts.
