A Much-Needed Nap

Napping on the Train
Photo by myself on the subway.

Yet another photo of a New Yorker catching some shuteye on the train. A suited passenger served as a human shield.


Thanks for all the recent comments. Sorry I haven't been visiting many blogs recently; I've been busy and on the verge of a cold.

I'm sure everyone is looking forward to trick-or-treating and the weekend.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Fall From Above

Above Central Park
Photo by myself high above Central Park.

I took a picture from the job site of one of my projects, a three-bedroom apartment on Central Park West, Wednesday morning. The sky was overcast, but the park below was awash in the color of fall foliage.

Not a bad view, eh?


Happy Autumn, everyone!

The Space of Chance Encounters

Subway Ride Home
Photo by myself on the subway ride home.

I like the above photo for the man in the poster, who seemed to be a part of the scene. I also like how dark the shadows are, and how bright the highlights.


I love the subway, but the ride to and fro can be stressful. When you can't get a seat, when the trains are late, when they seem to careen out of control, when you're 5'-3" and clinging to a pole. But the subway is also the space of possibilities.

A friend of mine met a fling on the subway. There were flirtatious looks passed back and forth. Later, my friend looked on the 'Missed Connections' page of Craigslist and found a message posted to him. (It would be a short-lived encounter).

And of course there was the story this summer about a fellow who was smitten by a woman he spotted on the subway...so much so that he created a website with a hand sketch to help track her down. The story made it to major newspapers and tv shows.

And he found her. And they dated. And they broke up.

Ah well, c'est la vie!

Cold Noodles and Hot Shows

East Village, NYC
Photo by myself in the East Village, around 10th Street and Second Avenue.

Mark and I are quite smitten by the noodle dishes at this tiny Japanese restaurant that has a handful of seats. They have a couple cold noodle dishes here that are perfect for summer days.

Alas, the cold noodles will have to wait until next year!


Speaking of food, this season's Top Chef takes place here in New York, which premieres November 12. I'm sure I will be addicted to the show even more than usual.

And speaking of Top Chef, you can meet this season's contestants today in a Five Borough tasting event.

That's right. Between noon and 3pm, Bravo TV is hosting a tasting event at Vanderbuilt Hall, at Grand Central Terminal. Fancy restaurants from each of the five boroughs will be showing their food.

Tickets are 30 bucks and all proceeds will go to charity. The list of restaurants looks scrumptious.

I wish I had known about this event earlier. I would have taken the day off to eat well and go to the gym!

On Fish, Cats and Dogs

Choosing FIsh
Another snapshot from the fish market in Brooklyn, Chinatown.


The last couple weeks I've been digging into the photo stash. Our new puppy has been a handful.

Rupert, who is three months old, has been great. He's learned to sit on command, and has adjusted well. The cat and he have slept near each other, without any injuries.

The only thing is, we wake up around 5 am to take him out to pee. The cat has also been very needy, meowing late into the night. The result? Mark and I are very, very, very tired.

So we took the Friday off to relax. I slept in a little. Then we drove into Sunset Park for lunch, where I snapped a couple photos. The weekend has been pretty low key.

Hats off to all parents of human and animal children out there, who manage to care for their little ones, get spotty sleep and somehow function. I honestly don't know how you do it without going nuts.

Fish Market, Chinatown

Fish Market, Chinatown
Photo by myself in Chinatown, Brooklyn.

Sunset Park in Brooklyn, around 60th Street and 8th Avenue, has a large Chinese and Vietnamese population. There, you can find open fish markets and restaurants that rival those in Manhattan.

Riding High

NYPD on Horseback
Photo by myself, in midtown, around 6th Avenue and 40th Street.

There's something about horses that inspire a bit of fear.

I've been told by horse people that these animals doesn't really know how big they are, so despite their size, they can be easily spooked.

We The People

Columbus Circle, NYC
Photo by myself near Columbus Circle, earlier this year.

A crowd tries to get a view of a large screen television, near 59th Street and Columbus Avenue.


For those of you not living in New York, here's an update on local news. Today (Thursday) we find out whether the mayor can extend the usual maximum of eight years in office.

Traditionally, mayors have adhered to term limits, however Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the self-made businessman and billionaire, is petitioning to extend his stay due to the current economy.

So far, I think Bloomberg has done a good job. Quality of life has remained the same for residents, and energy has been put into making the city a desirable place to visit.

We'll see today whether New York has the chance to have Bloomberg around another four years.

To those New Yorkers out there, what do you think?

On Street Corners in the East Village

Mosaic in the East Village

A number of lamp posts in the East Village are adorned with hand made mosaics commemorating New York and 9/11.

It's nice to run into these intimate creations accidentally on a street corner.

Stray Cat, Brooklyn

Stray Cat, Brooklyn
Photo by myself of a stray cat in Brooklyn.

Between seeing homeless humans and animals, I've come to realize that one of the most important things to any living thing is the sense of 'home'.

Animal have homes, but not always ones with human guardians. These guys tend to stay within a distinct territory. Homeless humans are the same. They stay on particular street corners, subway stations or benches.

It's unimaginable to me to be completely without a home. To not have a home is to not have an identity or sense of safety.


I've noticed a lot more stray cats recently. I'm not sure whether it's because of the areas I frequent or because of the economy.

I sometimes see homeless people sitting on the sidewalk with a dog or cat, and it's a heartbreaking aight. It's easy to assume that the homeless person uses the animal to provoke more donations, but the animal is never on a leash or held against its will.

Live Music, Union Square

Street Musicians, Union Square
Photo by myself at the Union Square subway station.

Jam sessions at bigger, well-trafficked subway stations are typical. Many of them sell cds of their work.

Here's a nice picture to start off the work week. These fellows were playing a feisty tune for commuters during rush hour.

On Bowling and Critters

Bowlmore, University Place
Photo by myself, from the lanes at Bowlmor, a bowling alley on University Place.

There are bowling alleys in the city, but you have to know where to find them. I went to one last week for a friend's birthday party, which was fun.


Meanwhile, Mark and I have been homebodies with Rupert, the puppy we brought home last week.

Rupert and the cat have been getting along surprisingly well. There's been some hissing and some wary looks, but generally it's been fine. The two share a love for napping and not doing much. Sometimes they will sleep on the sofa, next to each other.

Rupert is lucky to have Mark as a devoted Dad. Already, Rupert understands the idea of wee wee pads, and the words 'no', 'sit', 'come', 'good boy' and his own name. There have been some accidents, of course - but much fewer than I'd expected.

All those episodes of The Dog Whisperer have paid off!

Bright Lights, Big City

Night shot, Midtown
Photo by myself in Midtown.

By the time I leave the office, the sky is dark. But there are always streetlights, headlights and store lights brightly lit.

Just ahead, a street vendor sells water and pretzels. Across the street lies Duane Reade, a popular pharmacy chain in the city.


My apologies for not writing much this week. Between trying to train the dog to poop (actually, watching Mark training the dog) and my intense work load, there's little time for anything.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

The Bandshell, Central Park

Central Park bandshell
Photo by myself of the bandshell in Central Park.

The shadow cast by the half dome reveals that the concrete surface is curved and coffered.


If you're planning to visit New York soon, it's perfect timing. Not only is the weather wonderful, but the New York Times featured The City in its travel section.

One article makes some economical suggestions to those on a budget. The attempt to stick to a $500 budget for two people over a weekend proved very difficult. The hotel stay ate up most of the money, while galleries and parks provided free sources of entertainment.

The second article lists other suggestions of what to do while here.

At least we can be sure that the city parks will always be free.

Radio City and Rupert, Day Two

Radio City
Photo by myself of Radio City Music Hall, around 6th Avenue and 50th Street.

A photo taken a while ago of Radio City Music Hall. I liked the colors and curly-cue script.


The last couple of days have been spent nesting with Mark and our new dog, Rupert. I hope to get out of the house and taking more photos soon!

Only the second day that Rupert has been with us, and already we're a family of couch potatoes - me, Mark, the cat and wee Rupert nicely ensconced on the sofa. At times the cat and Rupert sleep on neighboring cushions.

Not all dogs and cats can adjust so quickly to each other, but Rupert is a very, very mellow pup. He keeps his distance and behaves like a pickle in a jar.

I imagine it's only a matter of time before I find Dida cat and Rupert pup locked in an embrace.

Boston (Terrier) in New York

Photo by myself in Brooklyn.

The long-awaited day came Saturday. Rupert, our new Boston Terrier, came home with Mark and me. It was a day full of getting acquainted, buying a leash and attempts to pee.

I'm happy to report success on all counts!


Yeah, yeah, this is a blog about New York, not Boston, but I can't help myself.

Rupert is eleven weeks old and a New York dog. Mark and I picked him up Saturday from his home in the Long Island suburbs.

During an afternoon walk, perfect strangers ran across the street to greet us and see the puppy. So the whole thing about attracting attention with a wee, cute animal is completely true.

There has been some nervous sniffing between Rupert and our cat, Dida. So far, both sides have been politely curious.

I'll post photos of Rupert now and again as he grows up. It's just been one puppy nap after another.

On Shaky Ground

Apartment buildings, Brooklyn
Photo by myself in Brooklyn, around Sunset Park.

I'm not sure whether the above photo shows subsidized housing or not, but you have to love the fake grass lining some of the balconies.


At the end of another week, it feels like the sky is falling.

I hear that landlords are cutting prices of rental apartments by hundreds of dollars, in order to lock tenants into a lease. In all the time I've lived in New York, I've not heard of such a thing.

New Yorkers always talk of the real estate here as its own animal, immune to the larger economy. Not so.

I've heard that many architectural offices that have let people go. Other employees are grumbling about the pithy raises they received, being short-handed or completely overworked. Meanwhile, clients are grumbling and avoiding phone calls.

Times are scary, people. Hopefully we'll hit bottom soon, so we can make the long journey upwards.

Under the Overpass, in Harlem

125th Street
Photo by myself around 125th Street, in Harlem.

Earlier this year, Mark and I drove by the elevated subway line in Harlem. The sheer size of the trusses struck me as being monumental.

New York doesn't have an elevated train as they do in Chicago. The subways typically run below ground, except for moments like these in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx.

Emailing Under The Influence...Not

Pronto Pizza, New York
Photo by myself in midtown, around 6th Avenue and 34th Street.

A small pizza place open to the sidewalk, is aglow with neon.


Yes, you can get pizza pretty much any time of the day or night here. It's especially tasty after too much drinking.

And speaking of drinking, there's a new function available on Google email, to prevent embarrassing email gaffes when you're too eager to click 'Send' to your secret crush, or to your insane boss.

Just enable 'Google Goggles'. You'll have to pass a sobriety test before being able to send emails. Answer math questions correctly within a certain amount of time, before anything leaves your fingertips.

Backstage in the West Village

Backstage on a photoshoot
Photo by myself backstage before a photoshoot in the West Village.

I had the chance to go backstage of a photoshoot recently, for a magazine. My time entailed a lot of sitting around and noshing on foods, while clothes were ironed and people were primped.

There are slews of photography studios around, many housed in the large warehouses on the fringes of the city.


I would have loved to watch the photographer during the shoot, but I only had a sidelong view. Instead, I hung out backstage and watched the make-up artist.

I wonder whether photographer asked the sitters to say cheese?

Smile, It's Happy Hour

Happy Hour sign
Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

A bar in our neighborhood posts funny quips to draw people in for happy hour. This one riffs on the Republican nominee for Vice President.


One thing I've noticed is that politicians are easy targets for great humor. Mark and I were cackling last week over David Letterman's commentary on the Vice Presidential debate.

I think it's the peanut gallery mentality of laughing at those in power. I feel guilty laughing at regular people. With politicians, though, I have no problems.

I love Letterman. He's a New York institution. New Yorkers tend to prefer Letterman's humor to that of Jay Leno on the West Coast. I think Jay is much too polite for our taste.

We're lucky to witness Letterman's snarky comments nightly. And he's got so much material to work with.

Fixing Flats in the Streets

Flat Fix, Brooklyn
Photo by myself in Brooklyn.

A NYC cab is repaired for a flat tire.


'Flat fixes' specialize in, well, you guessed it, fixing flats. I'm not sure whether they exist outside New York or not. I only heard of them since moving to Brooklyn.

A whole slew of them exist here, because the streets are so terrible. Cars park in the street and have their bum tires repaired within a minute, for a nominal fee.

If you ever intend on driving in New York, good luck. Mark has gone through two tires and several puncture repairs this year.

Live, From Chinatown

Shopping in Chinatown
Photo by myself in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, around 60th Street and 8th Avenue.

Mark and I only recently discovered a neighborhood of Chinese and Vietnamese markets and restaurants in Brooklyn. Now we don't have to travel to Manhattan for dim sum or a hearty bowl of noodles.

Many of the open markets sell live fish and shellfish. This young girl was put off by the crabs wriggling in the bin.


The Brooklyn version of Chinatown is located in Sunset Park. Take the N train to the 8th Avenue stop at 62nd Street.

With the fall season, vendors are selling Lichi, a delicious, delicate fruit.

Subway Jam Session

Subway players

Photo by myself in the subway at Penn Station.

A brass jazz group was jamming on Friday night, drawing a small crowd.


Typically when I need a second opinion about a photo, I ask Mark what he thinks.

Usually he'll say he likes one photo over the other, and usually I agree. We're lucky to have very similar taste.

Tonight we disagreed. I liked the photo above, and he liked the one below. What's your opinion?

Neither photo is very good in terms of color, and the chrome column is confusing against the metal instruments.

It was the content that drew me - three guys obviously enjoying themselves, sharing a moment together.

Asleep on the D Train

Sleeping on the subway
Photo by myself on the subway.

After a long day, people will take a nap anywhere they can.


The economic climate has definitely affected us. This morning I heard about another small design firm that laid off 6 of its 15 employees, because a couple major projects had fallen through.

Our clients are decidedly grouchy. Last night, a coworker found himself in a heated argument with an ornery client. Everyone stayed quiet, while my poor coworker found himself blamed for just about every little thing.

Wednesday morning, I talked with the decorator of the new project I'm working on, a modest renovation of a three-bedroom apartment on Central Park West. We commiserated about how clients want more for their money, while the amount of legwork remains the same.

(Yes, even the super wealthy want to save a few bucks).

The solution? Take a nap I guess, and dream sweet dreams.

CDP Theme Day - Lines

On Line at the Shake Shack
Photo by myself earlier this year at the Shake Shack, a popular eatery in Madison Square Park, around 23rd Street and 5th Avenue. The line for thick shakes and hot dogs wraps around the park.

It's the monthly City Daily Photo Theme Day again, and this month's theme is 'Lines'.

Click here to view thumbnails for all participants


If you spend any time at all in New York, you will stand on line.

No, not 'in line', but 'on it', on line.

The distinction can be confusing, now that being 'online' means tapping into the internet. But there you go. We New Yorkers have our little oddities.

When I first moved to New York, the term bothered me. What is being 'on line', anyhow? You are not on a line. You're standing in a line, for goodness sake.

Over time, I've come to accept the term for what it is - an understanding among us, like a code word or secret handshake. This is what we do, we crazed people who will brave extreme weather for a hot dog or a Barney's sample sale.

And this is how we say it.
