Korean Deli, Night

In New York, and I guess in other cities as well, the Korean Deli is always open all night. I once asked the owner of this one if he had many customers at night. No, not really, he said. Maybe around midnight we have a few but after 2 a.m. you don’t see anyone until maybe 5 a.m. (which is when this was taken).

So why, I asked don’t you close down at night, I asked. He seemed genuinely puzzled, but after a moment said - it was because his father always had it opened all night. We both looked around the deserted store and smiled at each other. I asked him for permission to take a few pictures and he shrugged his shoulders as if to say - knock yourself out.

I’m not going to say that the Lipstick Building is my favorite New York building - but it is one of them.  I returned several times at night trying to figure out why I couldn’t get this shot right - and of course it turns out that it needed to be in color.

This city: what a bunch of boxes within boxes . You’re probably sitting in a box right now as am I. How could anyone possibly escape.

Took a quick trip to the Top of the Rock this morning. Air quality was awful, but I managed a few interesting shots of nearby buildings.
