But not necessarily seven days a week ( Rite Aid is not 24 hrs on the weekends)...
A couple of delis are open all night but have a buzzer at the door...
Well, traffic never completely stops, not here around the Midtown tunnel, that's for sure.
You can hear one motorcyclist from my apartment late at night some times ( I assume it is the same person) who really revs up his engine as he heads through the local brick canyon on his way to the tunnel...
Yes. Another Psychic. Is there a "Psychic Community" around here or something?
Some of them use Yoga symbols and some seem more oriented towards astrology or perhaps palmistry.
If you believe in conspiracy theories, I am sure you can find some wicked purpose to why so many of these places are located around here.

What the hell is it doing here? Is someone coming back for it?
Meanwhile, someone has put food out for pigeons. Really not necessary...
Day is another hot and humid one...relief promised for tomorrow.

Some kind of summer flower sweats in the terrific heat and humidity as the rain moves in.
Hair and nail salon boasts Japanese straightening. What is that?

All I saw were some stragglers like this couple and tons of cops soaking up overtime and tropic heat.
Heard one of the cops complaining about the heat...very unusual, NYC cops are real stoics about the weather. They are out in everything all the time...
Just when I thought I had seen all of them, voila, another new psychic shop pops up in my path. This neighborhood has too many psychic places for it not to mean something....but what?

Yet another Psychic in the neighborhood...
Neighbor out on a park bench.Wouldn't sit still so he is out of focus...why is it so hard to get decent shots of some people?

I don't buy Newsday every day any more...and I don't buy cigarettes, which by the way are going way up again due to a new tax to try and close the State's deficit.
Those Green Condos over on Second Avenue seem to be ready but don't look like many people gave moved in...real estate market is still poor here.

Meanwhile, on Fifth Avenue, people advertise....yet another Psychic! What is it with all these psychics in Midtown Manhattan?

Wish I had a polarizing filter built in on my camera to block distracting reflections in shop window.
Particularly like the reference to fish fossils...

Bar flags for World's Cup in bar window ...
This tablet at the Southwest corner of Park Avenue and 35th Street marks the center of the old Murray farm-- the true center of Murray Hill?

Sports bars at 34th Street and 3rd Avenue are seeing a lot more interest in this than in the past...
This may just be for today, as the U.S. plays England and U.S. fans are hoping for an upset.

Maybe this was as close a parking spot as they could get to where they wanted to go.
Two cafes catering to two different types of clientele--maybe--exist side by side.
Wanted to get shot of vendor at this street place selling food to someone but felt it would be an unwelcome intrusion...there are some places in Midtown where you are free to photograph anything, but this quiet corner didn't seem like one of them.

A lot of trucks showed up ( not just the two shown here)...I walked by as they were coming and was back ten minutes later as some trucks were leaving, but a few more were coming in from farther away, probably!
This was possibly a heart attack... wonder if woman on cell phone nearby called in a false alarm just to relieve her boredom on lazy, hot afternoon. Hope not!
