422 West 57th Street. New York, NY 10019 (Between 9th Avenue and 10th Avenue) (Hells Kitchen area)
One of many many churches dotted around NYC, not the big fancy ones but the local ones serving the community and looking for any donations and help they can get to do this.
This particular one had a sale going on with all sorts on show as they try to keep going.
I can't remember what i was in the area for but i know it was around 10am so it could have been the day i was up seeing the Anderson Cooper show being made. Its shot a block or 2 from there at 528 west 57th. But for the life of me i cannot remember taking my camera with me to the show and i never took any other images just this one.
They have a website here

You have a knack for capturing the "personality" of whatever you shoot. I really like this scene. It looks similar to what one might find on the Lower East Side, with the type of architecture and the fire escapes. The older man with the broom is great; he looks tired, but is still determined to help. The light-colored boots under the table jump out, too. Great B/W presentation. This is another gritty urban photo that is timeless.

I just love this kind of photo. It is rare on TE and under appreciated. A daily life seen with architectural interest as well as social commentary.Black and white is a perfect choice as this highlights the gritty realism.
