New York nooks
I've found a couple of spots that are perfect for sitting still, watching the clouds move and the people pass, and listening to music or sounds of the city.
Some perfect "art-brain" locations:
Greenwich and Vestry (there's a little green cubbyhole in the side of a building)
4th St. and 2nd Ave (there's a mysterious post - you know, those mysterious posts that are sometimes close to fire hydrants ... the ones that serve no immediately apparent purpose, but that look like they should be for locking bikes or tying up horses)
When I get my hands on a new digital camera I will begin documenting my favorite nooks.
