And some random NYC notes


– An absolutely astonishing number of people wear black here. And about eighty percent of them head to toe.

– I hear a lot of complaining about a wide variety of things on the subway. Including the subway itself.

– So far, it seems like a lot of people are nice enough to hold the door for the person behind them, but a much smaller number care to give up their seat on the subway.

    When I told Stephen that he was a flâneur, he thought I was implying that he was lazy; I meant that he seems to honed his sense of urban wandering and social observation around the world. It seems that there is a different understanding of that word in France proper and in the U.S.!
