Walking in Manhattan

South Street Seaport

"Walking in Manhattan is never just about getting from A to B. It’s also a form of self-expression and self-preservation. To escape home, no matter how tony your address, is to seek time and space for you to be you, whether you’re John Travolta strutting to the Bee Gees in Bay Ridge or Dustin Hoffman slamming the hood of a cab that dared to get in his way on Sixth Avenue. 'Hey! I’m walking here!' is every frustrated New Yorker’s cri de coeur, a curse as much as it is an affirmation."
John Brodie, Town & Country
