After my semi-successful image of the skyline from the park, I rushed back to the hotel. I needed to get to the airport as my six-day New York City trip was ending.
I ventured the equivalent of a few blocks into Central Park, roughly around 61st street. My hotel, where I temporarily stored my suitcase, was on 44th, about a mile away or a 20-minute walk. Luckily, I had time to shoot the street as I traveled south.
Not remembering my path, I did some sleuthing via Google Maps and shops I found in this photo. I took this shot on 8th Avenue near 51st street — roughly halfway to my destination. I didn’t have GPS, but often Google is all you need in New York to find the location.

It’s good to see that there are plenty of places that still look like New York. Having been a fire escape kid in the sweltering evenings of more than one New York summer (no air conditioning) that’s a bit of a nostalgia shot.
I never experienced the fire escape life in NYC. But it does evoke a quintessential New York feel.
