55th Street between 5th and 6th is one of my favorite streets in New York. As soon as you walk by the Peninsula Hotel or the Presbyterian church (depending on what side you’re on) everything immediately becomes rugged. Shops and buildings are vacant but could be opened tomorrow. It’s as if the property owners of this small block are treating these buildings like antiques, buttressing them just enough to endure. Two blocks away is the Museum of Modern Art. The summer and fall are the best times to stroll down this street. The sun rips through the buildings to overcome the shade. People recline with their backs against the wall, waiting for life’s next call. All of a sudden a seemingly dead place becomes quietly alive. You’re guaranteed to get interesting vibes and photos on 55th Street between 5th and 6th. The places unknown ask to be explored. #nyc
