the 508 project: faith

 

508 project: faith
86th & 87th streets

i call this trip 'faith' because of the number of churches, synagogues, etc that we passed on just two streets. starting at our local hot dog shop (which apparently also makes fresh juices, but i have never visited this place in search of anything that isn't deep fried..), we headed east on 86th:
