Gloves of Manhattan

Here are some pictures of gloves I've seen laying around in the street. My original intent was to make this a Gloves of Harlem feature, but I keep seeing them in Midtown and the Village, so I thought I'd broaden my scope. Also I keep forgetting to note specific addresses, so this isn't very helpful to people missing gloves. But I do what I can.

That one doesn't really look like a glove, but I promise it is. It's one of those plastic foodservice ones. 

This nice pink glove is my favorite of the bunch. I hope its owner can track it down. 

This one was a few blocks from Madison Square Garden, I think. 


  1. Interesting, visually and conceptually. Tie in in to all the election hoopla going on. It's not what people say anymore, but how it's said.

  2. That last picture particularly reminds me of that creepy story about the disembodied hand that I think Poe wrote. Also that Poe meme that says "I'm just a Poe boy from a Poe family" is so fantastic it has almost made me stop being grumpy about memes. I mean, Poe + Queen in one witty frame??!! Does life get any better than that?
