Hey, gidday mates! I did something I never usually do yesterday, and spent the afternoon in the Financial District with my Italian mate Jacopo Moschin (he shot these photos, then we played a rowdy game of squash).

It doesn’t snow, temperatures hardly drop below a balmy 10 degrees, and it might rain all the time, but that’s what cars are for. Here in New York, things are different: Chuck Taylors don’t cut it in snow, and wet feet will give you the man flu faster than drinking a cup full of pneumonia. So for the past few months I’ve been jumping puddles, holding umbrellas over my sneakers and walking miles in the wrong direction to avoid patchesClick to Continue!
