Scouting in New York

In New York today scouting locations for the upcoming shoot with Kirstie Simson, a improvisation dancer and a performer the New York Times once called “a force of nature”. Also meeting with another potential on-camera subject for Old School, New School. 

Lunch in Little Italy was delicious as always. Caffe Sorento. Great Chicken Marsala. 

Of all the little Italys in the US, the one bordering Chinatown in New York captivates my imagination the most. The tenements, the narrow streets, the vegetable stands, the wrought iron, the awnings. The people. Hardworking immigrants recreating a little piece from another world. (Alright, so maybe that’s every ethnic neighborhood in New York.) But this place still has the best Chicken Marsala.
