New York City alley. Lower East Side.

When I was younger, I thought that New York City was teeming with alleys and narrow streets fueled by an over-active imagination and a predilection for film noir cityscapes. I wanted to believe that New York City harbored the best and brightest of in-between places and worn out spaces. The truth is that while New York City does have alleys, they are a pretty rare sight. Perhaps that is why I am so drawn to the ones that do exist.

Freeman Alley and Freemans Restaurant. Lower East Side, Manhattan.

Freeman Alley is one of my favorite alleys in New York City. At the very end of it is a restaurant aptly named Freemans Restaurant. While I have never been to the restaurant since it’s a bit out of my price range currently, the lights that indicate life for wary first-time patrons are a warm sight for cold eyes on a bitter winter night.
