I was walking home at 3am after taking the train the wrong way 7 stops. I decided to walk it back. I have always loved how useless all the stores look late at night in NYC. How they remain pristineĀ for the next day, showing off to no one. The spaces are left hollow, designed for bustling traffic, designed for certain times of day, specific purposes that are at once familiar and yet absurd. Department store. Hair and nail salon. We are all too rich
