107. NEW YORK ON FOOT. Upper East Side. An homage to Edward Hopper and the two remaining firms in the city that build wooden water towers. Calling them “NYC’s misunderstood icons”, a local news report claims that “the average wood tank holds 10,000 gallons of water and costs around $30,000. A steel tank would cost up to $120,000.”
104. NEW YORK ON FOOT. Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Looking northwest down Washington Avenue from Eastern Parkway (the Manhattan skyline in the background). The photo gives a clue as to why its called Crown Heights.
102. NEW YORK ON FOOT. Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn. A shoreline community in south Brooklyn that was flooded out by Hurricane Sandy. I made a short video to publicize their plight, and thanks to heroic volunteers it was not the end for this fascinating neighborhood. Link to the video here.
101. NEW YORK ON FOOT. East Midtown, Manhattan. This image reminds me somehow of the Manhattan short stories by O Henry. They are worth reading, certainly not for their literary value, but they capture something of the restless aspirations of “The City”.
