Gap Window Inadvertently Obscene

Couldn't help but to notice the shadow cast on this Gap window at 85th and Third Avenue. What exactly are the selling here? Is this truth in advertising? And, if that's what they are selling, I guess, on a relative basis, the Urban Outfitters to open soon next door doesn't seem all that bad!

Shake Shack On E 86th Open, And They Are Lining Up!

It's here, it' happening! Shake Shack is up and running and I find myself in the garden of the place slowly digesting. Until rush hour the line for the unannounced opening was averaging around 20, but come rush hour they are working a line of 50 plus. The garden seating is ample and comfortable. My order was a bit messed up (no fixins on the burgers), but I chalk that up to first day issues. If there was any doubt that the UES has an appetite for the shack, that has been erased in a soft and very successful opening. Viva the shack!
