Wilting Flower District

These are some of the flowers outside a store on 28th Street just off Sixth Avenue. I captured this photo last weekend when I visited this part of Manhattan, which has been called the "flower district" since the 1890s. Unfortunately, as apartment high-rises and hotels crept along the area, it has become apparent that the flower district would have to disintegrate or relocate somewhere else.
