For quite a while I have been enjoying the store front windows at 243 Warren St. A mysterious person has been changing the displays in these windows in response to the world outside them. Last night as Karen and I were walking home, I noticed that the windows had changed again. This time to blank white illuminated by the ever present two white lights. So, I walked across the street to take a picture. As I approached, a man walking his dog came up to the door of 243. I asked, “Are you responsible for the windows?” “Yes” came the response. So here I was, in a serendipity of the local, meeting the person responsible for these simple little statements about passing events. ( I hesitate to give his name. Perhaps he will give permission.)
Turns out that what I thought to be blank is in fact his comment on the day as the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
Below in reverse chronological order are the pictures I have snapped over the past year of his commentary.
