A firehouse prepares for the July 4th Weekend

If you follow me on Tumblr, you know that I post a summary of pictures I take each week from my walks in New York.  Walking New York is an adventure, to say the least, with no two blocks nor people, nor moments, the same.  I always use my iPhone 6. 

I returned from a business trip on Wednesday afternoon anticipating new exploration.  After the bus dropped me off on 42nd and 10th, I walked up a block to 43rd and started my way east toward Grand Central.  

Below are some images all from the same street:  43rd between 8th and 9th.  I took all these with one snap because I had my suitcase in my left hand.

Here are some additional images.  For whatever reason, I felt like capturing sedentary people this week.
