West 38th Street, NYC / by Leslie

Leaving the Javits Center yesterday after the BEA book expo, which I will write about in another post, I spotted these iconic New York scenes within just one block of each other. The horse, getting a wash down after a long day pulling carriages in Central Park, looks terribly out of place on the street. Yet, it's classic New York to see a strange juxtaposition like this. The arches of a repurposed entrance, probably formerly for horses, now with a metal door. Finally, even taxi cabs need to go to an autobody shop. New York is so dense with such a variety of street scenes, it's definetly one of my favorite places to take pictures.
