lower east side alley

I spent today wandering around the Lower East Side, ducking into tiny back alley shops as well as traipsing through posh storefronts. I got a $5 handmade green tea lemongrass candle from a sidewalk vender in Soho, savored some actual green tea in Chinatown, and picked up a pair of hand-rolled cigars in little Italy.

I now plan on thoroughly enjoying a lazy evening on rooftops while sharing the day’s spoils with friends.
