Afternoon View – East River Bike Path

Today was the final Summer Streets for the year and Farmboy C and I biked from the Upper East Side to the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, then toured through Chinatown to the Bowery for brunch. We cut through the East Village on the way home, stopping for Mermaid cones at Big Gay Ice Cream before pausing to watch some Fringe Festival socialist street theater near Thompkins Square Park. Then it was back uptown via the bike path that hugs the East River. The weather was cool and perfect despite a dark drizzly start.
