****************************************

This is a continuation of Flickr sets that I created in 2010 (shown here), 2009 (shown here), and 2008 (shown here) — which, collectively, illustrate a variety of scenes and people in the small "pocket park" known as Verdi Square, located at 72nd Street and Broadway in New York City’s Upper West Side, right by the 72nd St. IRT subway station.

I typically visit a local gym once or twice a week, and I get there by taking the downtown IRT express from my home (at 96th Street) down to the 72nd Street stop. Whenever possible, I try to schedule an extra 30-60 minutes to sit quietly on one of the park benches, and just watch the flow of people coming in and out of the park — sometimes just passing through, to get from 72nd Street up to 73rd Street, but mostly entering or exiting the subway station.

You see all kinds of people here: students, bums, tourists, office workers, homeless people, retired people, babysitters, children, soldiers, sanitation workers, lovers, friends, dogs, cats, pigeons, and a few things that simply defy description. Sometimes you see the same people over and over again; sometimes they follow a regular pattern at a particular time of the day.

If I focus on the people entering the park at 73rd Street, and walking southwards toward the subway entrance, I typically have five or ten seconds to (a) decide if they’re sufficiently interesting to bother photographing,(b) wait for them to get in a position where I can get a clear shot of them, and (c) focus my camera on them and take several shots, in the hope that at least one or two of them will be well-focused and really interesting.

While you might get the impression that I photograph every single person who moves through this park, it’s actually just the opposite: the vast majority of people that I see here are just not all that interesting. (It’s not that they’re ugly, it’s just that there’s nothing interesting, memorable, or distinctive about them.) Even so, I might well take, say, 200 shots in the space of an hour. But some of them are repetitive or redundant, and others are blurred or out-of-focus, or technically defective in some other way. Of the ones that survive this kind of scrutiny, many turn out to be well-focused, nicely-composed, but … well … just "okay". I’ll keep them on my computer, just in case, but I don’t bother uploading them.

Typically, only about 5-10% of the photos I’ve taken get uploaded to Flickr — e.g., about 10 photos from a one-hour session in which a thousand, or more, people have walked past me. There are some exceptions to this rule of thumb, as was the case with this particular set — but nevertheless, what you’re seeing it is indeed only a tiny, tiny subset of the "real" street scene in New York City. On the other hand, it is reassuring to see that there are at least a few "interesting" people in a city that often has a reputation of being mean, cold, and heartless…v

So you’ve got that first date, your dating profile obviously works and the hard work is done……….. Unfortunately not! Despite being granted your date, you still need to make sure it’s one that your partner will enjoy and remember. Follow our tried and tested tips for dating and relax in the knowledge that you have a great first date planned:

Get to know your date – Though taking your date out to the cinema may seem like a good and safe choice for a first date, it is one you should avoid. The best and most important part of a first date is getting to know each other; something like going to the cinema will prevent this. You could spend hours with your date, not talking, and leaving knowing barely more about him or her than when you came. Take your date somewhere public where you will have time and feel comfortable to get to know your date. This is particular important if you have found each other via online dating, it’s essential to plan a date that allows you to get to know the person.

 

Phone date – It may not seem like the most exciting of first dates but a phone date can be a great idea, especially if you haven’t met your date before. With the increased popularity of online dating sites more and more people have first dates with someone they’ve never met. Speaking for a while on the phone can really help get to know your date, this can help make the first meet easier and less nerve racking, plus getting to know your date before hand will really help you design a perfect day for them.

 

Dare to be different – It’s tempting to go with a tried and tested idea for a first date, there’s nothing wrong with that but even if the date goes well it may not be the most memorable. By doing something unique and different you ensure that even if your date doesn’t go perfectly, your partner will certainly remember it and you. Of course, that also means you’re much more likely to be thinking of ideas for a second date! Something like a roller disco or air show will give you things to do and talk about, and allow you time to get to know one another.

Be yourself – Though this is very cliché, being yourself is perhaps the best thing you can do on your first date. You want your date to like you for yourself, and they want to like you too. No one wants to find out the person they’ve got to know is just an act or a lie, these things will only come back to haunt you. If you’ve met via an online dating service its even more important to let your date get to know the real you, so just relax and be yourself.
