In the continuing battle of New York poster real estate, there is a constant shuffle of place and replace.  Strangely beautiful byproducts of this struggle are the humorous, surreal, abstract and artful pieces that emerge in-between.

The sheer range and variation of fellow citizenry always astounds.

We live in a photo-op city and its an interesting coincidence that the back street alley across from us has a 19th century bridge that makes for an extremely popular photo shoot location.  I rarely walk by without some picture taking activity going on. Here are a first and a last photo-op sandwich with a few other recent items thrown in,

Leaping cat people

Mom documenting a Halloween cape

East Village alley park

Water sports in Washington Square

another alley on the Lower East Side

of course, the wealth of backgrounds works for professional shoots as well...

Musicians from Philly do a portrait in front of a favorite mural in Williamsburg.

and winding up across the way on Staple Street,
 (the official name) in Tribeca.
