    Was Upper East Side (like in a Warren Zevon song) in Manhattan on Sunday 16 September 2012 and captured a couple recordings at Bloomingdale's. I flipped a coin to decide which to submit to the Junto and this one won. This recording captures a journey from the 59th Street N/R/4/5/6 subway station under the store to the street. There is a proprietary entrance to the store from the station into the basement-level "Metro59" section of the Men's Department. Once inside, you can zig-zag up a couple 1/2 flight escalators, then up and down some stairs to arrive at the main street entrance on Lexington Avenue between 59th and 60th Streets.

    The 2nd recording was made on the 8th (top) floor in the children's section. The recording in the children's section involved a back-to-school mannequin display designed to be a fake rock band called "The Know-It-Alls," complete with guitars and drums that kids would play with as they passed by. Very different but equally interesting, that one is here:

    This Disquiet Junto project was done in association with the exhibit As Real As It Gets, organized by Rob Walker at the gallery Apex Art in Manhattan (November 15 - December 22, 2012): ;
