St. Marks Place

I hear the best way to decrease soreness after a hard work out (or a 13.1 mile run) is to walk. Just keep walking, stretching and hydrating. So Monday evening, when I was feeling better, but still sore, I found myself urging to release some of the pain. I grabbed my camera knowing that I feel complete with that Nikon pressed between my fingers and set out to St. Marks Place to explore.

St. Marks Place spans only three short blocks in the heart of the East Village. Living in this area is as loud as the people you see walking down the street. It is vibrant, magical and captures a side of New York City that residents sometimes forget to appreciate. While there may be men wearing pig masks and women with tie-dye hair, this is also the place where Jimi Hendrix loved to jam and Andy Warhol lived. It attracts people of all backgrounds, making it the epicenter for what New York City stands for.

Here’s what I captured, if you’d like to take a look.

I started at one end and saw…

St. Marks is such an interesting little street. If you are visiting the city, I highly suggest taking a little time to walk it and people watch. I guarantee you will not get bored. Tempted?

Happy Thursday!
