VIEWS FROM THE STREET

What are you carrying with you today?

Telecommunications, 38
Nothing really, except my camera, a CD, some language handbooks, an empty bottle of water, a Larabar, rail maps and a microzen player with Engelbert Humperdink.

Hand cream, my digital camera, the Tokyo Bilingual Atlas, a manuscript of my new book, "Moroccan Journal," my computer, a hat and umbrella (unfortunately, not matching), poems, and sketchbook and pen.

Thurston Moore
Sculptor, 46
I have my record store map -- it's published annually. I only have the 2002 version, which is a bit out of date. I have subway and train maps, toothpicks, tissues, a bottle of water and royal milk tea.

Just shirts and a magazine and underwear. I'm staying at my friend's place. No toothbrush because I have toothbrushes at all my friends' places, so I can crash wherever.

Eugene Roussin
Teacher, 23
An iPod playing Fugazi, a cell phone and keys and my wallet. I don't have any pics of my mom, but I have some purikura with my ex-girlfriend. I don't know why I still have that.
