"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute

How many people do we see each day walking through the streets of the city? Hundreds? Sometimes thousands? If you stop and look it is easy to imagine a story in behind everything you see.

I have that thought all the time. Sometimes I'll be on the LIRR at night, and see a few random lit windows as we make our way through Queens and think how each window holds its own story.

You're also making me think of Sondheim's great song "Another Hundred People" from Company.

Yeah, I looked up at an apartment building on upper Broadway last week. It was the evening, dark out, and I saw all the windows lit up, some yellow lit, others had that cool, flickering light that meant a TV was on. And I just wondered...what's going on up in there?
