I came upon this female figure on the corner of 14th and West. Her eye glasses were knocked off. Thought she was dead and called an ambulance. Went into a nearby apartment building and told the doorman. He said -- Oh, she came in earlier. She was really drunk --. (could she be a casuality of the Rusty Knot?)

Actively pursuing change begins young with this one.

 

Some information about planned changes to Union Square here:

The piers are coming down and a new park is being built along the Brooklyn Waterfront.

Thanks to the CA supreme court ruling in May, however, this one was for real.

How many countless stories have played themselves out here at the corner of Lexington Avenue and 42nd in Manhattan? The light enchants. The city could never sleep. Change is a constant seduction.

Selected for www.wnyc.org/slideshows2/potshow - see the slideshow. Change for the Better, Change for the Worse and will be in a Slideluck Potshow at the McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn on August 2nd

 

Changing populations in many neighborhoods create some very interesting juxtapositions. Old style Irish Pub next to a Boutique with Arabic signage and group of Muslim women walking by - note the woman on the right is wearing a tartan plaid jacket as though she has a foot in both worlds and it's possible that she does.

This abandoned movie theater on Northern Blvd. and Main St. in Flushing is where I saw Star Wars as a kid. I don't know who is in the limo.

This site has been boarded up for a long time, in November I took a photo at this same place - it showed a mural covered by graffitti, this time only the bottom part of the wall remains, the rest of the wall and the entire building has been torn down. I wonder what will be replacing it.

All the amazing and newly renovated and expanded Museums in New York and with that the enormous access to the best art in the world is truly a treat for a New Yorker and its visitors. Here a man who truly dressed to meet Pollack this morning and so did at the MoMa.

One enormous change that has happened over the last few years is the transformation of New York Waterfronts which is now accessable almost all around Manhattan and part of Brooklyn. Though it is really tasefully done part of it in my opinion is over done meaning it has destroyed part of the feeling but must say over all positive.

Hot Bird was located at 665 Vanderbilt Avenue...

What is change, but a subtle documentation of the changing of the light? This beauty appeared out of no where and the lighting was just right at the 2008 Mermaid Parade. She showed the ephemeral, changing beauty of that careful afternoon light at Coney Island. May I continue to dream of afternoon mermaids.

Landmark Building on 42nd Street

One amazing thing with New York is the positive stance it has with the arts (even though one might argue what art they ar supporting). Here a photo of the latest public installation New York Waterfalls at the Brooklyn Bridge.

Until the Hudson River Park was completed, we were unable to experience the beauty of our waterfront with such immediacy. It was five minutes from our home, may as well been five million miles away. Now I really feel i live in a port town.It is a mini vacation to walk , run or bike along the water. Or just to gaze at the waterfront from a bench with greenery nearby. Nirvana!

This parking lot, which was once a dilapidated rug store (and occasionally used to display art) is across the street from the City Hall of Jersey City. This banner appeared recently on it. Is this a developer's humor or something else?

What can happen when a group of people try to prevent the destruction of a neighborhood and landmark. The bulletin board was later completely removed and has not been replaced- what are the odds?! (Change for the worse).

42nd Street Looking East

I guess you could call this the BEFORE photo from another I submitted-although the building was well on its way of being demolished. There is definitely a change both GOOD and BAD!

this is a 6 image composite, shot at the north end of hunter's point in LIC, queens. the new towers are to the left, and cleared space is waiting for more sometime soon.

Fireworks over the east river, July 4th, 2008; moved south and launched between 10th and 24th Streets.

For the past several years I've been photographing in the Manhattanville area under the Riverside Drive Viaduct now changing daily as Columbia University buys out the old meatpackers and expands its campus.

 

Once while I was photographing from around this spot, a sidewalk art critic asked me why so many people photograph this structure, so I said that I thought it was a beautiful and historic structure worth photographing. Then he asked me why there needed to be so many photographs of this one place, and I said that each person sees it differently and the neighborhood is constantly changing, there are vehicles and people moving through the space, and the light changes from moment to moment. As Columbia develops this area, it will be radically different in the next ten to twenty years. Midtown Packing on the left side of the frame was already surrounded by scaffolding when I was in the neighborhood , and the tire repair shop to its right has been moved out.

 

While I was making this photograph, 23 August 2003 (the print was made in 2004), painter Rackstraw Downes was set up across the street from me working on a huge canvas spread across two easels.

 

This was made with an 8x10" camera. To see a high resolution version, visit--

The environment anywhere around 34th Street in Manhattan is in a constant state of flux. Like New York in general, every lifestyle is represented everyday on the streets. I thought this juxtaposition of sorts was interesting.

this is a composite of 5 images shot on the waterfront in greenpoint, a few blocks south of greenpoint ave.. the whole area was being cleared and readied for something big to go in here when i shot this.
