Week Ten: November 13-19
|New cup design
|Baxter & Canal
With so many flags around, it’s inevitable that many will be thrown away.
Deli and billboard displays will end, some sooner than others.
|Sidewalk in Kearny, NJ
But other reminders will be with us for a while.
|The fine print
|Red, white, and rhinestone
By now the souvenirs for sale on Canal Street have gone through several iterations. Most are designed in the U.S. and manufactured overseas.
|The all-inclusive FDNYPD
Weekends are always busiest on Canal Street. The hand-knit sweaters and hats for sale outside my door are replaced with more patriotic designs.
|Nor the soles of her shoe?
Reminders can be found anywhere. Tacked up in a bar, taped to windows, well-lit in store fronts.
Some clearly took a lot of time to make.
|245th Anniversary Saint Andrew’s Day Banquet, Waldorf-Astoria
Fall is always benefit season in New York, though this year it feels a little more intense.
|Raffle to benefit the Twin Towers Fund
Saturday night I go Scottish country dancing with some high-school friends at a benefit in Midtown, then head down to Tribeca to catch the final night of fund-raising at my local bar.
