A little snow . . . then oot 'n aboot in Bed-Stuy, Lower Manhattan, & Crown Heights, in that order.

After a few days, the snow turns brown and grey and one is walking in slush.

The Civil Service, a new cafe at Nostrand & Clifton - used to be the Tiny Cup

Complicated visuals on the B38 bus

The  optimism abounds in this unlikely film school scenario on a subway poster. I know... I teach in film school. 

A mural in Crown Heights - Nostrand or Marcy? - somewhere near Halsey.

This shot and the one above from a laundromat in Crown Heights

Ms. Dahlia's Cafe, Nostrand Ave.

A chance to make a few extra bucks.

Now onto Lower Manhattan, where I recently had some business to conduct...
A beautiful old loft building.

Erected 1869. A green metallic facade.
And this small brick gem, sandwiched between two other loft building.

A fire escape with substantial presence . . .

. . . and from below, one can see the dense weight that will bring the ladder down to the ground, if needed

Had to do it. Church Street near Walker.

A window display on Church St. near Canal Street.

Inside one of the loft buildings.

And on to Crown Heights.

Time to go home.
