One of our readers asked for pictures of the streets of New York, especially Soho. The pictures below show a walk from the World Trade Center Path station up West Broadway, all the way to Soho.
This is a mural on the outside of a Mexican Restaurant on West Broadway a few blocks from Ground Zero. The painting pays tribute to the people who died on 9/11. The mural has been on the wall for so many years that the wall now also has graffiti on it. However, notice how even the graffiti artists show enough respect for the victims that they put their “tags” on the outside edges and do not deface the mural.

Continuing up West Broadway, we come to a store called Balloon Saloon, which claims to have been voted “the most fun store in New York.” Exactly when and where this vote took place they never actually say.
This graffiti covers a door next to a polished brass sigh which says, “The Goatsingers Upstairs”. We have no idea who or what the Goatsingers are, but they seem to always keep the brass sign polished but never remove the graffiti.
It is still early in the morning so it is not yet open. At night there is a line down the block just to get in. For more on Tribeca click here to see our pictures of the Tribeca Film Festival.
