walking past Mo’s butcher shop on Elizabeth. A late model BMW with Jersey tags,parked
a large breed thirty- something Lab bounded out of his car, and retrieved a grafitti covered skateboard and then he assumed a casual demeanor atop his board skating along the sidewalk across to Cafe Habana’s , where a crowd congregates every evening to munch corn on the cob. I spotted a guy on the bench with a top hat , narrow black jeans and striped shirt boom box at his side.. he has his route,from avenue of the americas at La Dolce Vita to the bowery then rounding back on prince st… this is his hangout. I wondered how many subways he took to
to sit there and smoke and say, there’s nowhere like nolita.
