I've always loved walking down the alleys and side streets of cities and towns.  It gives you a chance to see what a place is really all about.  Apartment tenants' flowers (or laundry) on their fire escapes, restaurant / store employees on their smoke break, the unchanged portions of century old buildings, and street artwork.

Speaking of artwork, what's the deal with the pictures of the eyes in Gardiner?  Are they just artwork, or do they have another purpose?

Pretty sure they are the eyes of famous people and historical figures: Ben Franklin, the Mona Lisa, Sir Paul McCartney, etc.
