This Way to Subway, in Midtown

Subway sandwiches, Midtown Photo by myself, around 39th Street and Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.

A snapshot from busy Midtown. A woman in Middle Eastern clothing held a sign advertising Subway sandwiches, last week.

In most of Manhattan, the avenues are the main streets and run north-south. They're lined with stores and delis.

Streets run east-west and are narrower and less trafficked. Restaurants can be found on the side streets, too. And so some places hire people to stand on the busier avenues or near subway stations as human signs, to draw traffic their way.

I hope everyone had a good weekend and a good Mother's Day.

We had a warm and sunny weekend, here. Sorry for the lack of posts...I took a little impromptu vacation this weekend, doing virtually nothing. Happy Monday, everyone!

you have an absolutely fantastic blog, i stumbled across it randomly and love it! however just a little comment: it's not "middle eastern clothing" she's wearing, that is generalizing that everyone from the middle east is muslim. which is not the case.
