Walking New York City, May 7th, 2007.
These photos were taken on a walk I took on Monday, May 7th, 2007.

I walked along Metropolitan Ave. from Hillside Ave. in Jamaica, Queens to the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The distance was about seven miles or so.

I started at 10am and got to the river around 6:30pm.I occasionally took side streets in my exploration along the way and stopped at a Polish restaurant for lunch.

180 photos were taken that documented this walk. They are my discoveries on this given day.

I also collected treasures along the way that I still have. I collected 44 treasures that I photographed at the end of my walk. I still have them and keep them in a Chinese food take out container.

Documenting this walk in this way made it all the more special and memorable. I knew I was leaving New York in a few months and I wanted to pay homage to walking in New York and and all of that wonderful world of noticing.
