Harlem 1985

Beautiful signage, but I wasn’t thrilled by the BBQ. Then again, what do I know?

“The Deuce” 1985

This has to have been the smallest “Multiplex Theater” of all time! Yes, I can print this in all sizes at very affordable prices…

NYC 1988

This old lady would sleep on the corner of 86th & Broadway, and one night she used her “Red Apple” shopping bag to create a pillow. I have recently seen a new wave of homelessness which rivals the 1980’s, hit New York. This time it’s mostly runaways from other towns who are young, white, and addicted to heroin. It is not an easy time to walk down the street…

“Death Becomes You” 2006

Look at the poison leaching out onto the cement. Everywhere I look, I still see teenagers  smoking and I find it hard to believe. When I was a kid of 13, smokes were 45¢ a pack. Fast forward 13 years and I can not finish a cigarette. My lymph nodes started burning so bad after a couple of puffs, that I had throw the cigarettes away. Maybe I was lucky that my lungs were shot…
