Waiting Around 34th Street for Buses

2009-10-19 2

I get buses to Philly from here, sometimes i am early and i walk around. this is what i see.

The bus stop is on 34th and 8th. Its right by Penn station and Madison square gardens and tick tock, a 24 hours diner that serves American comfort food, I had eggs Benedict. It was ok, not the best but fine.

When people wait, some like to read a magazine, some talk incessantly on their phones, others like to stare at the floor, hands in pockets. Not me. I like to watch people. We are fascinating aren’t we? None more so than when we are just going about our business.

These pictures were taken over a few trips to the bus stop and a few were in rush hour, loads of people all busy (except for the man who had time to put his dog in a bag!)

Also its close to the empire state building, so if you like tall things like giraffes and giants you should hang out here.
