Hell's Kitchen, 46th Street Between Ninth and Tenth Avenues

Last Saturday I went to get a haircut at David Ryan's on West 46th Street. See map. If I were on top of things, I'd have a link to a photo of my haircut. Not on top of things. Afterwards I walked 46th Street to the river and back on 45th Street.

This is a pretty and frothy shot that reminds me in its prettiness and frothiness of this Cornelia Street shot last summer.

This is so Victorian. This looks like the delicate lace doillies my grandmother used to tat.

I don't think it's pretty and frothy. I think the scene is stunning in its blatant religiosity. And the dappled light and flat foreground add to that really still stage-set quality. I really like it.

Love those incidentals--this time, that smiling blue lips of that loopy schmatta--that, to me, make these photos odd as well as beautiful.

I don't understand the 'religiosity' comment, and I don't think it's frothy either. I like the colors, the small gothic arches, and the balance. It's not a typical NY street.

It's got something in it for everyone! I like those glowing windows - something is burning inside.
