What is today?

Wednesday. I make the mistake of reading most of the health articles in the Times and the conclusion seems to be: move all the time. Never sit still. Otherwise you will DIE.

I used to walk for an hour every day, for the pleasure of it and for the exercise, but I don’t do that so much anymore. I’m pretty sure I still walk more than most people, but maybe I should go back to that. I exercise regularly, and would keep that up, but maybe I should add the daily walk back in.

I shot this small wooden house tucked behind some other buildings off Canal Street. Wooden buildings always get my attention because there’s so few of them. I love spotting them in old photographs of Manhattan as well.

  1. Stacy, you might enjoy a book called Blockology written a few years ago by a fellow who recently died, a friend of a friend of mine. He used to walk Lower Manhattan when he lived here, and, unlike most “self-guided walking tour” books, Blockology covers in great detail
    specific blocks he found interesting. His blog, permanently frozen in time, which has info about the book, is

  2. That looks like a great site. How sad that he died, he looks pretty young. What happened?
