140 Comes Alive..



The city was abuzz with colour and hungry crowds on Thursday evening to celebrate the launch of 140 Comes Alive. Aimee works in the 140 William St. building, how she deals with so many temptations on street level I can't imagine! Let's begin at the beginning and what better way to begin than chocolate.. it keeps me calm :) Interesting to see that as chilly as the weather gets in the evening in winter there is still the odd tee shirt amongst the coats and scarves..


Then into American style NYC diner East Village for a super delicious cheeseburger.. btw it's not as big as it looks :)


What the Flip! and Ribs & Burgers...


Not sure why but this was my own fav shot for the night.. Wassup Dog, one of the pavement food trucks cooking up a storm.. All this was and is going on around 140 William, pretty cool right! Bon weekend, take care and stay safe...

  2. My cholesterol shot up just looking at that burger and fries. I like the look of the place too. The area looks like it has a good "vibe" to it which is what the promotion was intended for I suppose.

  3. It looks like loads of fun there. Why did you let that drink machine get in front of the woman in East Village? You've got to move!

  6. If I worked in that building, I'd weigh about 600 pounds! How does Aimee resist temptation?

  13. For me, they're all my favorites! I always enjoy seeing folks out and about, especially in areas I've never been. How fun, everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.

  17. A series that really tells a story. You can get burgers at plenty of places in the original East Village but, in general, the cuisine tends to be a bit more exotic.

  26. Your photos are enticing me to pack and move to Perth. Only problem is it is just as hot and humid as here -- during the opposite half of the year.

  27. 140 William street is looking fabulous. Lovely night shots too Grace.
    I'll also be a bit "heavier" if I worked next to all those great restaurants!

  33. Grace, you have beautifully captured the vibrancy of Perth's urban night life with it's great color and reflections. Remember, chocolate, in moderation, is good for you. I didn't know that Aimee was your daughter until this post. I follow her blog also. You are both fine photographers.
