NYC is big and unique enough that it’s hard for me to say there’s one city street that is my favourite. I really like walking down Elizabeth early on a Saturday morning. The contrasting nuances between that street with Bowery and Canal are a plenty. I also like Thompson. It’s kind of cozy with the smaller shops and what feels like low hanging trees in the summer. A couple months ago I started switching up my walking to work paths. One day Thompson, the next Sullivan st. Over time I’d test out the different coffee shops for my early morning fix. My hands down favourite is Local. Easily the most consistently friendly people helping behind the counter and the fresh baking early in the morning is awesome. When I walk home it’s almost always a hundred percent going through Sullivan st. It has a different feel with all the shops and cafe’s with people, but not really crowded with tourists so it’s a fast walk to Washington Square Park.
Getting my coffee this morning at Local I couldn’t help but notice the large bench set out in front of it. As I was looking at it, it struck me suddenly that there’s a lot of public outdoor seating on Sullivan st. Walking a couple blocks between Houston and Spring st on Sullivan, here’s some of the great seats to take a moment to pause. There’s still more to shoot during the day when some of the other business open up, but these give a pretty good representation of why Sullivan st is my favourite street.
