Hello Spring!

This past winter was the coldest one in a long time. I stayed in my room scanning old negatives and considered myself very lucky for the distraction! This picture and the expression on these fellow New Yorkers, sums up the way I feel about winter. Not ready for Florida yet, but I’m getting long in the tooth and my bones don’t deal with 10º weather the way the once did…Good riddance! ©MATT WEBERnyc-winter-2015

89th Street Community Garden 1985

My dad fought against Ed Koch who suddenly wanted to build townhouses on this abandoned lot, where a few industrious upper west siders had been growing tomatoes. The real estate values had finally begun to climb after many years of stagnation. My dad was able to convince the city to leave one sliver of the garden alone, and now the garden known for its flowers is a place of relaxation for many, with occasional plays and music being performed there.
