On Eighth Avenue, on the West Side

On Eighth Ave
Photo by myself on Eighth Avenue around 39th Street.

You'd be surprised how homely some blocks still are, in New York.

Eighth Avenue is still decidedly un-fancy. There are x-rated video stores and peep shows still, some stores selling inexpensive clothing and pizza joints.

Up ahead on the left, is the hulking Port Authority Terminal, with gigantic green trusses on all sides. Buses leave there for New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and upstate New York.

Funny that people still buy x-rated videos in stores. Very last Century I think!

When I look at the pavement layering cables and piping must give a lot of trouble with these concrete slabs but perhaps there are service strokes inside.

Those are the oddest blocks up there...
