Elizabeth Street

November 04, 2011 6 Comments

Hello, happy Friday! Yesterday someone told me I sketch the way Bill Cunningham photographs. And I think it might be the best compliment in the world. So I promptly went out into the streets to hunt for inspiration and found these two lingering on Elizabeth Street with their 1.5 pound dog and fabulous outerwear. I hear the phrase "you can only get ___ in NYC" all the time in reference to certain foods, certain shopping etc. BUT what no one tells you is that you can only find dogs THIS small here. I swear, I've never seen such a high concentration of miniscule dogs before anywhere else in the world. I think it must be a response to our tiny apartments. Once you realize you only need a 200 square foot living space, you realize one pound of dog is enough to warm your heart too.
