A scene from the new Bowery

I never posted the following slice-of-life from last year... Seems fitting now after the other posts for a little contrast...

The two women -- one with a hat, one with a J Crew bag -- provoke a mild outburst from the men sitting in the shade outside the former Kelley & Ping space on the Bowery. It's the usual stuff. "Woooo!" And "Hey what's the hurry?" The men laugh and go back about their business. And sneak a peek as the women continue walking closer to the Bowery Hotel.

If the women are aware of the attention, then they do not let on. One is talking loudly on her cell phone. Her friend listens, and shouts into her friend's phone every so often.
