Right when I was taking this photo, some random Asian 20-year-old couple walked by, saying "Ugh, international tourists with their DSLRs". I laughed with my friend, because we're such "international tourists" from the next state over.

I got off at the 5th Ave. subway stop mistakenly (I had thought a place that we were going was close by, but I was way off) so I decided to walk around.
This is a reference to George Orwell's Animal Farm. While most of the allusions were rather shallow, I still thought it was cool.
I had no idea what this alluded to but after some Googling, it's an allusion to Marcel Proust, who's a French novelist. One of his famous quotes from his novels was "Longtemps je me suis couché de bonne heure (For a long time, I've been going to bed early)."
I thought this was pretty neat to have the season’s clothes displayed in this fashion (no pun intended, har har har). Have you seen any other pop culture references to literature?
