the quiet side of new york

(April 25, 2009)
Yes, it's the city that never sleeps, and while the first image of the big apple that pops into many heads is Times Square, there are many little alcoves of serenity, too.

In Central Park, if you slow down enough to take in your surroundings, you'll sometimes find faces carved into the rocks (first photo). And some of the old Mom 'n' Pop cafes that reek of history are a dying breed worth supporting.

Here are a few photos of a quiet day in the big city. It may not be the typical New York City experience, but it's a nice one nonetheless.
