"Things I Love" Thursdays - People Watching

I saw the sweetest thing from the third floor window of my dermatolgist's office during my lunch break this afternoon. Overlooking Madison Avenue, I spied a young couple in an embrace, kissing each other goodbye. They parted reluctantly, lingering with their fingers interlocked as they slipped in opposite directions. She does not know it, but he watched her walk away.

As she disappeared into the shadow of the cave-like entryway to 415 Madison Avenue, she hesitated at the glass doors, turned back and peeked around the corner to where he was already walking toward East 49th Street. He does not know it, but she watched him walk away.
"Things I Love" Thursdays are inspired by "I Love New York" (BNY, February 14, 2007).
