The Flower District

I was in the Flower District today, looking for planters. It used to be a much larger area with plants spilling out along Sixth Avenue making it feel like a walk through the rainforest.

Now the area is mostly limited to one block on 29th street where the greenery abounds.

It is still beautiful and unexpected.

I love the way the buildings rise up out of the plants.

The traffic seems calmer on this block, muffled by the fronds.

The subway is lurking in the potted palms,

as is Lady Gaga.

This is a really fun post. A total urban jungle out there! I was expecting some tigers and monkeys to show up!
