The best place to get plants in all of New York is on 28th street early morning on a weekend. The streets are lined with flower and plants. Shop after shop offer any plant you can imagine.
At the very start of the weekend Clara and I park on 29th street. Cappuccinos in hand we examine all of our options. We're looking for new house plants, something larger then we have now. A little hunting and we find what we want.
This street is full of photographic opportunities, come with an empty camera card, and a macro lens.
