Street Photography: 210 West 14th Street

In a previous blog post, I described my experience revisiting West 14th Street, an area I frequented many years ago when I worked in the music industry.  Although the area has changed, I photographed a residential building — number 200 — that stood on West 14th for over one hundred years. As I continued walkingContinue reading “Street Photography: 210 West 14th Street”

Cathedral of St. John the Divine

For some, Easter is not complete without attending a church service. For the Episcopal church in Morningside Heights, commonly known as St. John’s, that sense of incompleteness has lingered for well over a century.

There is a building with its entrance right on the corner of West 4th Street and Grove Street. I’ve walked past manyContinue reading “Street Photography: Looking Up”

Street Photography: Icons of New York

After photographing the Presbyterian Church and the gate detail of the Harry Winston jewelry store – both on Fifth Avenue and described in the last two posts – I walked down and took a side street.
