Eden

As I say goodbye to the East Village (I'm moving to Greentpoint, Brooklyn this weekend) I want to capture some of my favorite spots in the hood before I leave for cheaper rent and bigger spaces.

This is one of the few remaining vacant lots in the East Village, found on 6th street. This neighborhood used to be a crap hole. I can't stress enough how bad it was here, but now it's like Times Square. A tourist trap and land of sky rocketing rents.

This is one of my favorite spots in the EV because it's a reminder of what it used to be. What New York used to be. It's a reminder to me that if you look hard enough, you can find the past, the history, anywhere.

    Love that, love the photo.

    I feel like I say this all the time, but I mean: this is one of my faves of yours. I think it's all the tones of the buildings.
