Shoe Repair; "Love My Soup"

Little shops and restaurants still exist on Second Avenue, such as the shoe repair place with the little shoe maker in the window ( hard to see here, unfortunately).

Soup lovers have a little place to enjoy themselves nearby...though not probably what most people want on hot days in the summer.

Friday evening finds people hanging out and enjoying the view of the sun fading in the East...

Tudor City , Saturday afternoon

More from Tudor City.

It's a great place to be on a cool, breezy Saturday afternoon in August, with its views of the United Nations and the East river and beyond...seems so apart from the bustle of Midtown Manhattan.
