Inside the Oasis

Inside the Oasis

 

On July 6th, I wrote an article about a grocery store. I spoke so highly about how crossing the street and onto their property was a transcendent moment - moving you from mass urbanity to a small town.

In all of the talk, I never ventured into the store. It was the moment outside that overtook me and led me in, but once I was inside all sense left me and no photos were taken. But, I've returned with pictures of the interior and a story to tell.

While the outside - garden and all - displaces you, the inside still carries the exterior character while thrusting the city back into the picture. The aisles are lined with street signs navigating through the city - but I still found it hard to find the cereal - and the check out lines are decorated with stoplights. Cute and incredibly practical.

Nonetheless with its confusingly charming interior, still high praise raining to the Morton Williams on Bleecker Street.
