Café Reggio is in Greenwich Village and is where I always go for breakfast whenever I visit New York City for the day. It is a place that simply reeks of atmosphere—several scenes from The Godfather were filmed there, for example—and it has delicious coffee and food. It was a great start to a great day of urban photography in the greatest city in the world. It was such a good time that I have since forgiven Dave Deuel (my good friend with whom I travelled that day) the blister I got as he forced me to walk over seven miles throughout lower Manhattan.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photos selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
This next photo was actually taken at Union Station in New London, as I was waiting for Dave to pick me up:
