Washington Heights, Broadway at Sherman Avenue

Last Saturday, 9/9, I needed catfood from the vet on 187th Street. A walking opportunity. So I took the A train to Dyckman Street. Yes, one stop! Well, I'm not a good walker, okay? My leg hurts after a time. And I have a 30 day unlimited Metro Card, so the ride was free. Thank you MTA! Awful though the MTA is, you have to give them that. So, I'm walking down Broadway from Dyckman, along Fort Tryon Park, past Thayer, Arden, Dongan and now here's Sherman Avenue where I come to a dead stop. I'm a fool for the sign at Rivas Grocery – love, love love those colors. And that gray building. I took about 15 shots and wanted to post about 8 of them, but I won't. Just one more.

But I'm thinking I want to come back when it snows. Be sure to notice the green curtain in the window above.

(I feel especially bad when there are zero comments, so I'm making it #1--not that I wouldn't comment anyway, I add, hastily.) So, here goes nuttin': Love that green window curtin and the whole photo. Beautiful and so New York. 10-Q, Mary!

One other thing, re the first photo in this little grouping: Lord love the MTA, even though they have added pounds to everyone's bodies (well, not mine).
This gritty-yet-charming scene brings me back to Howard Avenue, Brownsville, Brooklyn, ca. 1955 or so (but do I want to be there?).

I like the way you intergrate color, black and white and gray tones.
