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…

86th St. & Broadway 1988

Michael, the guy with the broom was mute and probably deaf. He spent his entire day cleaning up our block. Nary a cigarette butt did he fail to pick up. A gentle man who had a very simple existence…©Matt Weber86-michael-checker-1988-copy

Recycler 2016

I read that the city is thinking about prosecuting the people who make their humble living recycling cans & bottles for 5¢. Apparently the city needs the cash to balance their books…
