42d Street 2015

Not many have that special something, that chutzpah, that sex appeal, that supreme confidence to wear sunglasses at night! And the ladies love it…

“Homeless and Fearless” 2015

They woke up a homeless man by kicking the box that he was sleeping in and insulting him, and he grabbed a homemade weapon of some sorts and took after the group.

Then I watched the group back down as they realized their joke had gone too far. The last time I saw one guy stand up to this many guys without displaying fear was in 1979…

Times Sq. “Wide” 1985

*TimesSq-WideAngle-Runner-1985 copyI never liked super wide angle lenses. This was taken with a 20mm 2.8 and I rarely took it with me when I traveled. You can see what was left of the Times Sq. bowling alley, and I wish I had taken a few shots inside when I bowled there. It was like walking back into the 1940’s with the old timers smoking their cigars, and placing bets on the ponies…

Amsterdam Ave. 1969

This is just a frame from an 8mm film I shot with a friend when I was a kid, but it is like looking into a lost world. The upper west side was. Not worth belaboring the obvious…

“The Little Building that Could” 1986

I really liked that this little building somehow survived the developers, who had attached their sign with a picture of a 34 story tower, proclaiming “1964 Fall Occupancy”. Twenty two years later the little greasy spoon was still serving affordable meals just one block south of Times sq.
