My sublet is two doors down from a police station. I usually leave an hour earlier than I need to so I can do a little sketching, and this time a police officer (and his buddy) were leaving for duty at the same time or something. Anyways, he stopped me and asked what the little green book was, and I think he enjoyed flipping through my sketchbook. He recognized Union Square and the bank building from the previous day... makes me wonder if this is going to be a weekly occurrence.
After escaping the law: this is right next to the Flatiron (34th x 5th Ave and maybe Broadway?):
