Real live people watching is my favorite thing, it’s better than Facebook as far as I am concerned Luckily I live on a busy block. With three salons, a preschool, a few teeny restaurants, and about a thousand dog walkers, there’s always something to look at. I especially love the building right across the street that has a bright turquoise fire escape where people smoke, get some air, and talk on the phone.
I think Alex has picked up the people watching gene. When she gets up in the morning, she runs to the window and calls out everything she sees. Then she looks for her ‘friend’. There’s a very busy flooring company across the street and the same man is always there, loading and unloading the trucks all day long. Every morning without fail, he looks up and waves to her, then she gets shy and runs away. Who says New Yorkers aren’t friendly? One day we’ll have to go down and properly introduce ourselves!
