When I visit NYC, I walk just like everyone else. My hotel, The Tryp, is in the Garment/Fashion District. There are lots of fabric and clothing stores, mostly wholesale. On Saturdays, you can even find racks of "bargains" out on the sidewalks. This dramatic vest had attracted a crowd of viewers. We oohed and awed, in several languages about how beautiful it was.
These were taken from my hotel window. This building is on 36th street. I think it must have been a workspace. The windows were open and the "curtains" were billowing during the day, each day except Sunday.
34th Street, looking left, then right.
