Orchard Street

I took a break from sorting and resizing photos to meet my friend Jayne for an early brunch at Cafe Katja on the Lower East Side. The neighborhood is a hipster paradise these days, but all the cool is a veneer over the very old wrought iron and brick bones.

For all the glossy super-high rises and luxury this and that everywhere, much of Manhattan still looks the way it did a century ago. For which I am profoundly grateful.
