(Jun 19) Roosevelt Island is about to get a large dose of change. It’s going to be change they won’t like one bit. It’s inevitable though. Underscoring this, it’s a Bruce Ratner project now, who will co-own the buildings, which come with free land, courtesy of the city. I can’t help but think the city is poor at selling itself to have to give so much away to those who will directly profit from this initiative. The idea that anyone has gotten a piece of Roosevelt Island free just seems scandalous.

the one and only subway stop
Arrival. Deep underground.

hello, manhattan
It is a beautiful place, with a view of the east side.

currently in working order
Aside from the subway, and a bridge to Astoria, the tram is the only other way on and off the island.

goldwater hospital
And then on the other side of the tram bridge… you’re there already.

catch it before it's gone forever
Now you see it… soon you won’t.

A familiar sight

(Oct 6) preed came to town, his first visit since 2007. I didn’t get to spend enough time with him the last time because Billy had just begun his death spiral. This time Paul probably saw more than enough of me. This is that story. <insert Law & Order sound here />

welcome back to new york
Paul came to town

big. metal. earth.
He stayed in the Columbus Circle area

larouchies
The crazy people were there to greet us

i finally held an event at the atrium
He gave a talk at the Wall St. Atrium

viza identified the deli from the photo of the food
We had lunch at Katz’s. The live entertainment was a family that repeatedly left their baby unattended at the table where it sucked on a mustard bottle.

the future rudolph guiliani bridge
We walked to Brooklyn across the Brooklyn Bridge

eventually to be renamed the mario cuomo bridge
Then walked back to Manhattan across the Manhattan Bridge

where many things are for sale
We made landfall in Chinatown.

mugged in ny, high tech style
Someone in the Bronx who works at the Irish bar he ate at cloned his card to buy a $1000 phone.

(Aug 1) The second half of my trip from downtown to Penn Station.

dog urinal
The suburban hydrants are all painted yellow. I like this better.

i love it not
Even the buildings want to be loved

birds are evil dinosaur progeny
How inviting

damaged, though
This undoubtedly is a Jim Power mosaic.

grace church
When these churches went up, they were probably the tallest things around. Today, they seem small indeed.

creepy, yo
Patriotism meets Halloween

this is what amazon.com eats
A relic that will doubtless soon be gone

get your super-expensive produce here!
Passing through the farmer’s market

it sure is shiny though
The statue of Andy Warhol for no apparent reason

no longer the tallest in the city though
Empire, revealed

city rats don't hang out and chill
What have we here?

i wonder who's behind it?
The hoax of the day

but it's cheap to feed
This faux rat probably ended the day stolen

purpleness
Then back to the land of ‘meh’

(Aug 1) A trip to see a client downtown. I walked back up Broadway as I have many times before, knowing this time, like the other times, would be different from any other time.

lollerblades
Seen passing through Jamaica Station… WTF.

probably not
They abbreviate all the bad things. Coincidence?

i've only photographed it a dozen times now
I need to find out what this is

a tower rises again
It’s still a surprise anything ever got started

up broadway
I set out after visiting a client, and passed through City Hall Park

i might have the wrong title/artist
Thomas Schütte
“Memorial for Unknown Artist”

that's a lot of ketchup

oh yes it is
Elmgreen & Dragset
“It’s Never Too Late to Say Sorry”

Plaques from a simpler time?

One more sentinel
