The summer at 141 Worth Street is, I know now from experience, a constantly bustling building of people from all walks of life in all sorts of wonderful wedding costumes ranging from full on regalia to adorable matching white wedding shorts all buzzing about in a sea of giddiness and emotion and paperwork too as they wait their turn to marry or get their license to marry. Family, friends and children mill about while photos are taken,
flowers are arranged, kissing is popular too.
After a few hours of watching the hubbub and the happy couples, our number was called and we went through the
paperwork at the counter, each signing and snapping one another doing so.
I suggest when feeling low or cynical or in need of inspiration or simply to be among throngs of people in a
state of giddy expectation, go visit and sit on a bench for an hour and take it all in.
