Sep 29, 2011 KAT HAT 7th Avenue NYC


THURSDAY  |  September 29, 2011

Very long day in nyc with so much visual variety and interesting people and places. At the end of the day we saw a cat “walking” his person on 7th avenue and West 37th into the night … intriguing. It really was you hear of people training their pets to do specific things then you see a cat sitting on someone’s head.   I just had to stop him.

DIGNA POLLANCO CIGARS  |  265 WEST 30TH STREET

We just happen to stumble upon this place while walking and ran across Digna Polanco Cigars (a very small family owned business)  the people were very friendly and didn’t mind me taking a few photographs.  I very very tempted to buy a cigar and smoke it but I wasn’t with the right company and the time was short.

They roll their own (Dominican rolled) cigars.  The cigars are very inexpensive and you may buy them in a box of 25.  The boxes are made of cedar and are very nice looking.

A whole box of Corona’s is around $70.00.  If you are looking for name brands and have a particular favorite then you won’t find it here.  They only sell their own personal hand rolled stogies which is not necessarily a bad thing but it’s a matter of preference.  The store itself is very small so if you plan on relaxing inside it can feel claustrophobic cause space is so small but, for me, it looks nice and inviting at night.

A SACRED PLACE  |  AFRICAN BURIAL GROUNDS  290 BROADWAY AVENUE

From about the 1690s until 1794, both free and enslaved Africans were buried in a 6.6-acre burial ground in Lower Manhattan, outside the boundaries of the settlement of New Amsterdam, later known as New York. Lost to history due to landfill and development, the grounds were rediscovered in 1991 as a consequence of the planned construction of a Federal office building.
