Photo Friday (on, uh Saturday)

Yesterday was a killer day at work, and afterwards I was busy bartending at this, so I didn’t get a chance to post these:

 Pat. June 1882

The glass sidewalks of SoHo are amazing. Many are paved over or blocked or cracked or covered up, but at night some of them still glow from subterranean lights. I’ve never been under these sidewalks, but I imagine the basements of SoHo having a spooky, ethereal luminescence from all these little marble-like lites. They are some of my favorite sidewalks in the world.

Maybe when the weather warms a bit I’ll take night pictures…
