I like bridges in gardens too. Something just so peaceful about them. Here's one from Rikugien Gardens Tokyo

Like the photo, PHeymont, but am surprised to see cigarette butts in a cafe photo from Europe. Is this one from the archives.

This is from summer of 2013. The disappearance of public smoking in Europe is slow and uneven; when the picture was taken, it was still allowed on the open terrace of the cafe. This summer, in England, I was surprised to note how much it persists there.

If you smoke under the open sky in New York is it not permitted ?

In fewer and fewer places, Garry. Not in parks, not within a specified distance of building doorways (to keep the smell and butts away from tenants, pupils, etc.) and not in outdoor cafes.

PortMoresby ·
I think PHeymont and DrFumblefinger are in cahoots today. The sandwich is made from the subject of "Where in the World". See the resemblence? Just picture it with sauce & frites.

Re: A Walk in Greenwich Village

Paul Heymont ·
As an even earlier 8th street walker (from the early 60s on) I also remember the wonderful 8th Street Bookshop, and numbers of artisan leather and jewelry shops...it was where you went for sandals...sad now, but nice to see Washington Square alive again, even if somewhat sanitized... The seemingly unstoppable expansion of NYU, like that of Columbia uptown, has changed the character of the area profoundly.

 Last summer, in Porto, Portugal we met a formidable sandwich and survived. But it took two of us to eat each of the ones we tried. All were good, and each was a little different. Our favorite recommended by our apartment host, was at Cafe...

A Walk in Greenwich Village

I had the chance to walk around Greenwich Village  (see map)  for the first time in several years. I know that this is going to sound like a "grandpa is complaining about change again" blog, but I was really disappointed in what I found....

It's in a museum, but is it art? Not intentionally; it was left behind by a cafe customer and cleared shortly after PHeymont found himself drawn to the image.
