Street Seen

N.Y.-P.D. — New York plays a confusing game in late March through early April with a bewildering tug-of-war between a stubborn winter and a timid spring. One day it’s hot and the next day it’s freezing. And some days that extreme plays out all in the space of a morning and afternoon. Everyone seems perplexed. Fashion collides with function. The sentiment of the day seems built on varieties of scowls, grunts and barbs. People dress inappropriately. Style comes to a standstill. It’s time to go shopping for new eyewear folks.
