For some reason I've lately been taking a lot ofphotos of people walking by interesting walls and backgrounds.
What's fascinates me about it that the same backdrop seems to have different meanings depending on the wprson walking by.
Is this a small laid back town in Australia or a New York City?
Ruby's on Mulberry at Spring Street.
In the neighborhood we call NoLiTa.
Lovely place for a burger and a beer.
And the coffee is outstanding.
The Aussies know their coffee.
Nice Green Bo, on 66 Bayard Street in Chinatown, New York City.
Fresh food in general.
A touch of Schezuan and a bit of Shanghai.
Not the typical greasy stuff although the menu reads as most others.
The room is just as ugly as most small China food joints most everywhere in the world.
New York's unfriendliest waiters, which says a lot,
consdering the stone faced,
over stressed (over stressing to turn table around as quickly as possible during lunch hours)
and generally unfriendly wait staff in most Chinese restaurants in NY.
But who cares.
The food is great, portions large
and the tab is small.
