Day 3: Earlier this summer Fallon and I went to The Met for the Manus X Machina exhibit. We took the subway to 59th so we could have a quick peek at the Bergdorf Goodman windows, then walked into Central Park, passing the zoo and Conservatory Pond (where they float the little sail boats) then swung back to 5th Ave to arrive at the museum. Here are the covers found along the way. Some shadows couldn't be avoided. One sidewalk vendor parked right over a sewer cover so my view was blocked. Not all photos are to scale - some of these are HUGE. I even jumped into the street as a bus was approaching to get the ConEdison. So here you go - a tiny collection from a 20 minute walk. Making the point that there are a lot of finds - even on a twenty minute walk.
It's amazing what you see when you're looking down. I have many more NYC sightings as last year I began a collaboration with The Ink Pad NYC and my first idea was to design manhole cover stencils and stamps. More on that soon.
