Part Seven began my survey of lower Manhattan.

Shot through glass, the chaos inside a bar on the corner right across from the Seaport:
Aside from two toppled blue booths …

Waiting and waiting and waiting in the bitter wind for a bus to return me to a lightless and heatless home, I see a cruise ship depart:
They have lights, heat, hot food. I am so damn jealous.
