8 Miles

It was an unusually warm and nice day yesterday, so I decided to walk the 8 miles from my apartment in Brooklyn to my photo lab in Midtown to drop off the film for Bringing Sexy Back.  Sure, the subway would get me there in 20 minutes, but there’s so much less to see.  To paraphrase Edward Abbey, “the first  thing you have to do in order to really explore is turn off the car and get out.”  What’s true for the deserts of Utah is also true for New York City.  You’ll never really get to know the city until you get out there and walk it.
