Big Box Not

Living in suburbia, I am quite used to the big commercial highways speckled by the ubiquitous big box stores and familiar national retail chains that conveniently frame my daily travels.

That kind of sprawling square footage doesn’t happen in downtown Manhattan. No how, no way. Retailers adjust.

Still, it tickled my funny bone to see a well-known hardware brand tucked inside a rather ornate (and lovely) nineteenth-century facade. I took out my smartphone and took a quickie-shot, as my gawking tourist behavior annoys my New York City daughter to no end!

Everything is different in the Big Apple!


The refracted reflections skew the shape of the buildings across the street, giving them a jittery, almost double-exposed look.
