Here is a daytime shot of a street usually associated with its nightlife. This is St. Mark's place in the East Village in Manhattan on a recent Saturday morning. It's been a while since I've been there at night, but I think it is known for its record stores, unusual boutiques and restaurants - and from the looks of it, its tattoo and piercing shops. It is also a popular spot for Japanese restaurants now. Things looked pretty quiet there that morning.
