This woman lovingly fed the birds, but loudly refused money offered to her by a passerby. I wanted to know her story, but she didn’t seem too approachable.(Bowery & Doyers St, Manhattan)Related post:Lost Amongst the Pigeons and the Crumbs

Thank goodness, Fay-Da on Mott has re-opened. I haven’t built up the courage to buy anything there yet — let alone ask why exactly they were closed in the first place, which is what I really wanna know — but I will soon. Buy something, that is.(Fay-Da Bakery, Mott St & Canal St, Manhattan)More Fay-Da:Yikes! BakeryYour Pork Chop House ExcellencyFay-Da Window

I felt no message could have been any clearer.”If you want to make the world a better place,” I said. “Take a look at yourself — and make that change.””Leave me alone or I’ll smash that cameraphone of yours,” he repiled.(Egg Custard Cafe, Mott St, Manhattan)

Whenever my out-of-town town friends mock my tolerance for the daily inconveniences and humiliations of NYC life, I can usually chalk it up to their obvious jealousy and feelings of inferiority of living in a lesser city. But after spending ten minutes in the rain to enter, twenty minutes to check-out, and $130 on barely a week’s worth of food at a store that’s only just now come to New York, all I can say is: hey, at least we have a 24 hour subway.(Trader Joe’s, 14 St, Manhattan)
