V for Vendetta has no real relevance to this photo. I even looked it up to make sure. Vendetta stands for a private feud, originally between Corsican or Sicilian families, in which the relatives seek vengeance by the killing or murder of that persons family. I had no idea it started in Italy. Doesn’t surprise me though (no offense if you’re from Italy or Italian).
I often wonder what New York was like back in the day when mobster families and gangs controlled certain areas of the city. Contemporary society only catches a glimpse of what that life was like through Hollywood portrayals. This view of the West Village was most certainly controlled by some gang back in the day, but today the only gangs that wander these streets are fashionable nightlife seekers.

And it’s pouring rain again in New York City. It’s been a strange fall season. Cold, hot, hurricane, earthquake, rain, rain and more rain. I do enjoy the reflections in the city as a result of the rain. One of these days my camera is going to get drenched and stop working.
