Upper East Side, 78th Street Between Cherokee Place and East End Avenue

Almost to the end of the street and here’s this sun dappled scene with the bright blue scaffolding. They’re all over town this summer. Have they always been bright blue? Didn’t they use to be that dull green color? Anyway, they’re now bright blue and create quite a festive scene in the sunshine.

You’ve probably never heard of Cherokee Place. Cherokee Place is one block long between 77 and 78, lined with the sides of apartment buildings, about 6 stories tall,on one side, very narrow sidewalk, not really meant for much walking, and the fenced in John Jay Park on the other. Oh, what the hell, I’m going to show it to you.

And that's Cherokee Place.

These two are lovely, but I'm particularly fond of the lower photograph. The bruised expanse of gray, the stillness, the delicate geometry, the paleness of it all.
