The Amazing FAO Schwarz
While I was in New York City for the big book party, we took some time out for shopping! This is the famous FAO Schwarz, which holds a special place in the hearts of many people. I'm sure at one point, you could call it the greatest toy store in the world. I'm sure other places hold that title now. In fact, I think I heard about FAO going bankrupt or something a few years back? I can't remember... but, either way, the store was still alive and hopping while we were there!
I figured this is most certainly the kind of place you cannot use a tripod, which made me determined to use a tripod. I quickly set up on the second floor after surveying the whole store for about 30 minutes, looking for the most interesting vantage. I quickly extended the tripod, fired away, and then retracted back into stealth-mode.
