Today On Second Avenue – the Brooklyn Bridge!
As I previously blogged here and here, in college I loved walking around with my dslr camera and blindly experimenting with different shutter speeds and apertures while shooting in black and white. At the time I had a weak Toshiba laptop that barely served me while writing esoteric college papers, so I didn’t have access to Photoshop or any real photo editing software.
Something about Chinatown makes me feel nostalgic about all the time I spent in Passaic, New Jersey. I previously mentioned that I immigrated from Poland. My first eight years in the United States were in immigrant communities, specifically Polish and Latino. While I mainly grew up in suburban Wallington, my grandparents lived in Passaic, a city that previously housed a large Polish population.
Snow On Second Avenue!
My senior year of college at NYU was particularly full of snow. Especially the Christmas blizzard of 2010!
Images of East Village snow include E4th Street, the Bowery, and E10th Street near Tompkins Square Park.
