Chalkboard Art #27

New York City streets are filled with a lot of things: people, dogs, trash, mysterious things you’re better off not knowing what they are…but my favorite things NYC sidewalks offer are Chalkboard Art.

mmmmm…tacos…and beer…and burgers, oh my!  they’re closed for the winter, so perhaps it’s a bit cruel of me to post this now, but I am hopeful they’ll be back when the weather warms up!




New Yorkers have a reputation for being cold and uncaring.  This is, of course, very far from the truth: most are just trying to get through their day.

Today as I was walking down 6th Avenue, I saw a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk with a sign that simply read:

I’m hungry and would appreciate any food you might have to spare.

As I got closer to the man, another man approached and offered him a drink and a bag.  The man offering food crouched in front of the man holding a sign, looked him in the eye and as I walked by, I heard him say: I know that you said you just wanted a burger, but you can’t enjoy a burger without fries and a coke.
