"Some days are harder than others, though most days aren't very hard. Still, sometimes I wonder: what if I gave it all up and followed my dream of becoming a professional skateboarder."

"I don't know whether to buy a $6k vintage bass guitar, or a $4k custom amplifier first. It's hard in the city. I just can't afford both at once. I might have to ask my dad to get me one of the two so I can have both at the same time."

regarding Arthur Ave, not sure about seafood restaurants. The best restaurant there (actually it's on Crescent around the corner) is Roberto's, which is more of a pasta specialist.

But the two fish markets are outstanding.

White guys are finance types who work too much and wish they had more time for their kids, usually photographed in Grand Central on their commute home to Connecticut. Or homeless drug addicts who haven't seen their wife and kids in years. There's about 15-20 unique stories which he posts attached to hundreds of different people.

I'd buy oysters there every day of I lived nearby. Snack for the trip home, or a snack when I get home since I now have an oyster knife.

That's the name of the place where I ate! Thank you for reminding me the name. Food and service were very good.

He does. There was this one guy he photographed, who spoke about his favorite pair of Italian silk boxers. But really, who wants to hear about someone that never really struggled?

what do you mean by "really struggled"? As in 75 and clear as being oppressive and dangerous heat for Manton and Booth? Or more along the lines of "middle east conflict refugee" type of struggle? Or more of a "had to deal with a taxi driver from the middle east" type of struggle?

Some life changing refugee kinda struggle. Some hardcore stuff to top our own 1st world problems.

I suppose that getting cancer 5 times and then deciding to spend your night at a Mets or Yankees game is the true definition of a struggle.

I personally like hearing about all kinds of people. We all have our blessings and our curses. I feel like I have had it relatively easy compared to a lot of people, but everybody has had some sort of horrible shit happen to them whether it physical, emotional, or whatever, but get the fuck over it. I don't feel the need to bring it up constantly, I like focusing on the good things in my life, which far outweigh the horrible things.

Oh yeah, and the weather sucks this week.

I meant a snack at the small tables they have set up. Too much of a pain to do properly while in a moving vehicle, you'd spill oyster juice all over and that shit will stink after 2 hours and you'd be that dick responsible for it.

The weather has been terrible this week, I agree. I was at the Yankee game last night and the air was like soup. Temp was supposedly 78 but the humidity made everyone have constant sweat beads on their brows. Probably made good money selling beer though.
