fruits of a summer past

Thompson Street / New York, New York
One of the things that defines New York to me are the open-air fruit (and vegetable) stands located along the sidewalks of the city. They can be found in virtually every neighborhood and know no economic boundaries - from corner bodegas to gourmet specialty shops. The produce always seems much more appealing to me when it's offered in natural light, stacked up and ready for picking - conjuring up images of country roadside stands - which I'm sure is the intention.
