Why I like New York 26: art

photo (3)Art decorates the city.  One finds art almost everywhere – in the museums for certain, but also in unexpected places.

After my adventure at Riverside Cleaners, I made my way down Broadway toward Village Copier. At 117th Avenue, Aphrodite caught my eye. One of seven pieces by Saint Clair Cemin, she stands on the Broadway Malls.

As with most art, I am not sure, I understand the sculpture. I am sure I could not explain it. But I am glad New York has the sculpture and that art fills the city. It helps make me classy.

See you along the Trail.

Why I like New York 25: good people

The people. The good people. Of course no place is perfect. No group of people is perfect. Of course we meet good people everywhere. And anywhere. And any time. But I met one today and so I need to give a shout out.

I dropped off some dry cleaning at Riverside Cleaners. It was a bit complicated of an order involving some work for a tailor. Maybe I am getting too big for my britches.

In the process of explaining the situation, I put an envelope with some important papers down on the counter. Going in I made a mental note not to forget the envelope. Apparently my mind heard the mental not as saying, “Forget the envelope.” So I did.

As I entered a restaurant a few doors up the street, I felt someone tug on my arm. I turned around to find the manager from Riverside Cleaners with my envelope in her hand.

Imperfect we may be, but I gotta love New Yorkers.

Let me know if you need a recommendation for a dry cleaner.

See you along the Trail.
