Share Article

From Josh Karns’ blog:

midtown is the cinema, and ciervo’s, and calder
midtown is HACC and herr and harris
midtown is the broad st. market and boas
midtown is nonna’s umbrellas and italian ice
midtown is a rose in the sunken garden, and riverfront park, and pontoon boats
midtown is the parkway apartments and the midtown tavern, and shady mcgrady’s, and al’s
midtown is fissel’s, and the midtown scholar used books, and the shining light thrift shop
midtown is ethnic foods and ethnic faces and the fresh baked smell of alvaro’s italian bakery
midtown is green and verbeke and reily and basin and cumberland and
union and bartine and sayford and penn and sassafrass streets
midtown is jackie blue and jupi’s gallery and good taste and the army & navy store
midtown is children in baggy jeans or parochial school uniforms walking in the street
midtown is blue collar and white collar and red-necked and refined and homeless
midtown is the salvation army and the side street cinema and pocket gardens
midtown is brownstones and clapboards and victorians and white farm houses
midtown is the ‘gayborhood’ filled with straights and marrieds and singles and dogs
midtown is the river, the river, the river, the river & glorious sunsets on the river
midtown is the heart of the city
