I've been spending a lot of solo dad time with my kids in the past several weeks. A couple of weeks back, I took them out for one of our signature Bataan Death Marches around Manhattan, wherein we circumnavigated the lower portion of the island, with me snapping seemingly incongruous pictures along the way. After a zig-zagging through the Financial District and into Chinatown, we found ourselves walking north up Ludlow Street.
Being a devout fan of the Velvet Underground, I couldn't help but pose my little two on the fabled steps of the band's former L.E.S. headquarters. In my version, the subjects are drinking chocolate milk. Beyond that, it's pretty faithful.
