Re-appropriating space – making sidewalks sacred


Global Wanderer writes:

“Walking to the 23rd street/6th av subway station after my wed night yoga class, i waw this taxi cab driver offering his daily Namaz (Muslim prayer which is to be performed 5 times a day) right on the street of New York. It must have been like 9.30pm. Every period of Namaz in the day as a specific time (and the last prayer of the day is to be read around that time) and since this cab driver probably was on the road, his only option was to park his cab and attend to his call of duty and prayer.

Immensely admirable devotion. I have seen Friday Namaz prayers being offered in mosques with flowing number of attendees having to make space on the sidewalks. But never something like that. Hats of to you my man! And again, the city never ceases to amaze. From wasted after-party revelers to cab drivers observing their faith and prayers in the busiest of streets of the city”
