Ink & Fur

Much of life in New York takes place upon the city’s ubiquitous stoops . The spacey stairways lining every street represent the original social network, with neighbors hanging in front of their buildings sharing stories, gossip, refreshments and a desire for some fresh air.

Modern conveniences may keep more folks indoors, but not this troika of interesting characters spied on a recent stroll. A man covered in ink, a mutt covered in fur and a scene dripping in Lower East Side ambiance.
