Gate of All Saints

I've passed this way many times, but never noticed the imposing script until last night. 97th and Broadway, the entrance to Central Park.

Santa is an alien!

Anybody seen Fred & Emma lately?
How bout the Browns?
I'd say they aren't coming back anytime soon...

A week in Boston, 4

A mom and pop sandwich shop in Roxbury. Closed. Who needs the tender care of a family joint when Micky Ds is around the corner?

classic signage in midtown

After searching high and low I finally found this 30s era sign on 8th and 48th street. It's two signs in one, for cigars and rooms. Housekeeping. Gotta love it. This is truly one of the last remaining vestiges of old New York in midtown, as buildings fall (including the one next to this soon) and developers continue to run amok. So eye this closely, soon it will be gone.
