Friday Foto: Flipwalk #34

If you’re new to this site and you haven’t seen my flipwalks before, here’s what you need to know: while I was living in New York City, near the site of the former World Trade Center, I would take walks, leaving the route up to the flip(s) of a coin at every intersection.

Eventually he seemed to settle into a contented life in Battery Park, just one more immigrant in New York City.
