Signs on Third Avenue

sidewalk, nyc
Photo by myself, around 17th Street and Third Avenue, near Union Square.

Signs and old storefronts make up a lot of each street. Not everything is brand-spanking new here, thank goodness. You can get free newspapers in the colored plastic bins on the sidewalk.

Third Avenue is crowded with dry cleaners, grocery stores, specialty stores and the like. Most of the time, there are apartments on the upper floors.

Stores are usually located on the north-south running avenues, and the majority of brownstones and apartments are located on the narrower streets.

A real colorful composition. Like the paper dispensers ( don't know if it is the correct word) and the neon sign in the shop window. Also the white door with the lead glass above. I suspect a very shabby stair behind.

I think you're right...a shabby stair and a dingy elevator. Eek.

Thanks Lily!!
