Just a bunch of really cool folks over at Astor Row Cafe. My recommendation? Dominican Hot Chocolate. Do it.
This initially was intended to be a portrait of a pair until the lady declined. This fellow however, still wanted his lens-time.

So apparently, I’ve met a YouTube celebrity. As previously stated, you just never know in New York. Ladies and gents, I present to you, thezombiunicorn.
I’ve been called laid back before. Then there’s this fellow.
Find Freddie Rankin @freddierankin and let him know what a dope artist he is.

Interruption, parte deux. Happy Friday.
This was an instance of a much longer conversation that could have taken place since we both happened to be travelling the exact same route. Note to self: just say hi.
