2. Stuyvesant Street

Nasir pulls over at the intersection of Stuyvesant Street, the only true east-west street in Manhattan, and 9th Street, across from the St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery. He’s trying to figure out how to turn on the off-duty light on the cab when two guys get in the car. A cop car comes, and after explaining that there’s an issue with his cab light, the cops kick out the guys. The cops give him directions, incredulously to Stanton Street, but then a girl, Andrea Cornish, gets in the cab. He’s drawn to her and when he can’t seem to kick her out, decides to take her where she wants to go. That place turns out to be the beach.
