On this spot, at lunch

This past summer I took a 10-week design course at General Assembly, a tech bootcamp in New York City. Staring at a computer all day can be numbing, so everyday I went outside, crossed Fifth Avenue, bought a spicy lamb gyro from the nearest halal vendor (what my classmates liked to call “street meat”) and went and sat on the same open bench in the shade between 21st and 22nd Street. This is what I saw.
