Bookseller Way

Here is a picture of the sidewalk in front of the formerly-beloved branch of Chase Bank, on the corner of Second Avenue and St. Mark's Place, the day after it snowed:

The day after.

Apparently, the shoveller couldn't be bothered to make a path wider than the shovel itself!

If you are familiar with this corner, you will recall that this is where an East Village street vendor sells books. He was not set up on the day I took this picture, but the very next day, there he was again:

The very next day.

Notice how he set up his table alongside the path, causing people who stopped at his tables to divert foot-traffic into the hazardous area behind them!
