Some sort of mass one-on-one debating thing was happening in Union Square on Thursday night.

In the recent months, it wasn't evident anything significant happened on this corner. There are many corners in Bed-Stuy like this. Few get similar attention, if any. Most are unmarked.
This summer, one spot on my street had a prayer candle out for a few nights after the shooting and a NYPD flyer promising a reward for information for a day before wind blew it away. It wasn't replaced. The scene returned to be just a public sidewalk.

It's easier to peer into a life being lived inside when the lights are on and drapes are drawn.

When I stepped out from the gym at 8pm, I saw an NYPD surveillance helicopter hovering over the neighborhood.

Seafood Ice Cream is one of those emergent artisanal flavors forecasted for trending in Spring 2015, right?

After dinner with Ma at Lulu's, where our waitress recognized me as a regular from my college days, and sorting through the client tasks that amassed while I was preoccupied with Life Itself, I began the drive back to NYC.

The birthday festivities over, my parents have gone to a hotel near the hospital to prepare for Dad's early morning surgery.
My way to process things was to take a night drive in and through and out of the city. And while there, wander quiet, empty Pittsburgh streets with a camera.

After I left Sonny's, I noticed this sign across the street from where I'd parked my car. Poor Posh Tomato, their sign lights are 70% burnt out, leaving them only with SH T lit.

A friend and her boo were hanging at Sonny's bar. I dropped in to have a beer and unwind.
As I sat at our table, I kept thinking about the Instagram photos I've been seeing from David Alan Harvey. He's a photographer who lives down this way, I think, at least as far as I can tell from the images he posts from his workspace.

I'm on Swoomer's rooftop somewhere around 5th Avenue in Brooklyn.

There are far fewer people on the streets here in Bed-Stuy than there were in Williamsburg. What people there are on the streets at this hour aren't on their way to a destination. They're seated and stationary, their activity extending to holding group conversations on stoops or in unfolded folding chairs near the entrances of their buildings. I'm on a folding chair on my roof. I purchased two of them from Ikea recently, along with a folding table.
