Kips Bay, 24th Street, off First Avenue

My lunch time walk of last Tuesday was directed toward picking up one little piece of 24th Street off First Avenue. 24th Street between First and Second Avenues is mainly one big plaza. Something to do with the East Midtown Plaza Apartments on that block? So walking or driving east, you think that 24th Street ends at Second Avenue. Come to find out there's the shortest little piece of it on the other side, a little dead end piece, but identified with an official street sign as 24th Street. I probably care more about this than the average person.

Here's a shot of the plaza, looking west.

I really like what you're doing here. I discovered your blog yesterday and became an instant fan, of the whole idea, of the terrific photos... I had to smile about what you wrote about caring more about this than the average person. I get the feeling sometimes that I'm the only person on the street who just exploring, just curious about what happens in the next block.
