Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Rainy Day Photo Walk
Last week during a strangely comforting rainy day I decided upon an impromptu photo walk around the upper east side. The following are the result.
I haven’t had my favorite Thai Food chain in a while and seeing it during this rainy day photo walk was an ambivalent feeling of happiness and sadness. Happy that I’d found yet another location of Spice, but sad that it wouldn’t be this day that I would dine there.Bagel Shops. Mmmm I sure do love the taste of a good bagel! As I crossed the street I came across this American nouveau retro muscle car – The Dodge Challenger. I look at this model of the Challenger and think Knight Rider meets Dukes of Hazard 2014.
I continued my journey east toward the FDR
From here I headed back west away from the water and back towards the west side and came across this.

Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Trader Joes Experience Shoctober 2013
Why should one’s shopping experience be so forced cramped and hurried? I know it’s great for buying quality with good prices but the whole shopping experience in Trader Joes is nothing short of high stress requiring a high patience threshold.
The aisles are so congested and narrow stopping to look at something on the shelf in order to determine whether or not you want to buy a product becomes very difficult with carts blocking the shelves and aisles and barely enough room to have foot traffic navigate the store in a coming and going orderly fashion.
The best piece of advice I can give anyone who shops there is to get there early. Plan out your course of attack for what you absolutely must leave the store with and go for those items first.
Try to find spots where you can tuck your cart away while grabbing all that your arms can carry back to the cart in order to minimize the likelihood of traffic jams with shopping carts.
Trader Joes, yes prices are awesome but the shopping experience leaves a great deal to be desired. Can you guys figure out how to either make your aisles wider and have traffic flow to where one doesn’t feel guilty or rushed while trying to pick products from the shelves?
