A block away from Times Square, pedestrians witnessed a police shooting Saturday night September 14th, 2013. The NY Daily News reports the NYPD was after a suspect who “simulated a gun in his hands,” the NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly shared. In this pursuit, police shot at him and injured two bystanders, the NYTimes reports. And being the prime spot it is in New York City, Port Authority pedestrians live-tweeted photos and reports of the scene.

Once a mainstay of the Tin Pan Alley music scene, Colony is now the last man standing, and it shows. The creaky drawers and scarred slide-top cases of CDs; rows of faded, autographed celebrity head-shots; and bins of retro concert posters are all hallmarks of a business that still has one foot squarely in the past. Just like back then, the mainstay of the store is sheet music; scores and fake books take up the majority of the space, covering everything from Broadway shows to be-bop. There are also racks of showtune/soundtrack CDs, contemporary rock and reggae albums, and boxed-sets of classic vocalists like Bing Crosby and Sinatra. If you can’t find what you’re looking for among the substantial inventory, take heart—the motto of the “musicologist” staff is, “You hum the tune, we tell you the title.” (text via NYMag)
