hitting the streets!

While I loved getting away to Maine last week, it was also wonderful coming home!  Truth is, I am a city girl at heart and there are only so many days I can go without a taste of the hustle-bustle of the streets of NYC.  These first three photos were taken on Bowery Street.  There is a lot of good street flavor and character on the Lower East Side...there is an interesting photo everywhere you look.




I can't remember where I took this next one--I think it was Prince Street a few blocks off Bowery.  A totally different scene, but just a few blocks away.


This last one was taken with my iPhone.  I couldn't resist this woman taking her smoke break on the window ledge of the Banana Republic on 5th Avenue.


Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Great shots although I have to agree with the first one...I miss the old NY too.

Loved your Maine shots...but I will always think of you as an urban muser:) Love that garage door with "Been down so long it looks like up to me" on it:)

Glad you enjoyed visiting Maine. I too like your city shots though. The first is my favorite, but that last one with the reclined woman next to the sale sign is super as well.
