Best Place to People-Watch

Bus Stops

Bus stops are a truly multisensory experience. On an average day you can hear women with voices like bassoons, watch men pace in peanut-colored suits, and get a waft of the occasional citizen who actually smells good. Bus stops also provide the perfect opportunity to view the latest in portable technology or shirts with profound or dumb quotes (usually interchangeable), or peer at what others are reading. And there is always the inexplicable mystery of how people who fall asleep on the bench somehow manage to wake up the moment their bus arrives. KRISTY HAMILTON
