Edwards' photo is very cool. And that's the east side of Avenue A between 6th and 5th, BTW, for you art historians who will be writing about this photo in years to come.

Yep, that's the bus stop across from Benny's, and the guy sitting there looks like the white haired homeless fellow who's been in the neighborhood for some time. Any idea about him? He definitely drinks way too much -- I wish I could do something to help, but he's pretty far gone.

The piece on Russ and Daughters was excellent....
