Hell's Kitchen, 34th Street at Eighth Avenue

New walk, new month.  Only a week behind now.  Last Sunday, March 7th, I went downtown to meet up with the Booker Prize Book Club.  The book under discussion was The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid (short-listed, not a prize winner).  The main character is a Pakistani, and so we met at a Pakistani restaurant on Ninth Avenue.  Where else?

This photo was taken at 6:30 p.m.  One week later, it would still be daylight.  Let's hear it for Daylight Savings time!  It is a time when I am happy with my government.  It was George Bush (yes!) who extended DST by a month.  Three weeks earlier in the spring and 1 week later in the fall.  Way to go, George!  By the way, I just learned that it is not Daylight Savings Time; it is Daylight Saving Time.

And so, this is where I got off the A train at 34th and Eighth.
