Walking Home from Work: Poster on Mercer St.

When I walk to work there’s the natural tendency to walk home from work too—a kind of obvious thing. But what’s not so obvious is that in NYC there are many different views from the same street, more so than the usual street. Depending whether it’s east/west, north/south or day/night the same street can look be quite different. Take Mercer St. for instance. My preference is to take it in the morning starting on Houston heading south to Grand St. near were I work. The short answer to why is that I like seeing who’s hanging outside the Mercer Hotel or who I might recognize walking their dog that later in the day might be on TMZ. On the way home I usually take Wooster as a nice mellow walk to clear the head. Once in a while Greene St. is thrown into the mix. Last night was a bit different. To shake things up I took my typical morning route in reverse. Right on the corner was a Fidel poster that had been updated with a different face mask. I’ve probably walked by the mailbox a handful of times but never noticed the poster until I went in reverse. It was too dark to take a pic so I decided that would be my next #walkingtoworktoday pic. I’ve found that things change instantly on the streets here, so it’s best not to put things off too long if there’s a poster/sticker/mark outside worth noting. Luck would have it that this morning nothing had changed and here is the pic. The take away I suppose it to do things in reverse once in a while to see what might be blindly obvious, and make sure not to put things off because who knows what it will look like tomorrow.
