Take Out The Trash

I saw this colorful trash bags left outside the CITE furniture store in SoHo earlier this week. It's that eye catching?

So who takes out your trash?

Husband & Wife

I was at Petal Belle, the lovely cafe on Sullivan Street in SoHo, a few weeks ago when I saw this beautiful couple leaving St. Anthony's Church across the street. Although I don't know the bride or groom, I would like to wish them a beautiful and happy life together.

So when was the last time you were at a wedding?

Tribal Mural

This young lady had more important things on her mind than admire the interesting tribal mural on the wall at Houston Street.

So have you ever been so engrossed with your electronic gadgets that your miss what is around you?

Houston & Mercer

This beautiful building is located on the northeast corner of Houston and Mercer Street in SoHo. I took this photo because of the amazing details on the walls. They don't make them like this anymore.

So what are you plans for the weekend? The weather is supposed to warm up a bit in NYC so I hope to go out and take lots of photos. My archive is running a little low of photos.

Keith Haring Grafitti

This graffiti is actually a re-creation of Keith Haring's work on the original site (wall) located on Houston Street near Bowery. According to a NYTimes article, the original graffiti has faded away and this was actually a 'paint over' to commemorate the artist's 50th birthday in May 2008.

So how would you like to be remembered when you are gone?

Angelika Film Center

This is the lobby/lounge/cafe area at the Angelika Film Center on Houston and Mercer Street in SoHo where I went to see the movie, I've Love You So Long (Il Y A Longtemps Que Je T'aime) recently. The movie was good but what was even more amazing was getting out of the cold (below freezing temperature these last couple of days) and spending a couple of hours inside a warm and toasty theater watching Kristin Scott Thomas speak French.

So what movie have you seen lately?

Houston and West Broadway

The street along the bottom of the photo is Houston Street and the street where the yellow cab is turning into is West Broadway. SoHo (short for South of Houston Street), a highly desirable shopping district, begins here.

New Yorkers like to give acronyms to the districts in the city like NoHo (North of Houston Street), Nolita (North of Little Italy), Tribeca (Triangle Below Canal Street) and DUMBO (District under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).

So does your city have an acronym?
