2011 was the last time I saw Manhattanhenge, and it feels like it’s been cloudy every year since, including today. Oh well.

if you ever get a chance to see it on a non-cloudy day, but you don’t have the time to get in position 3 to 4 hours beforehand (because of the crowds), you can always try hailing a cab and have it drive you north-south as you shoot through the window, as I did for the shots above in 2009.

Goodbye East Village Radio; I took these photos were taken the week before EVR shut down after 11 years being on-air. Because of licensing fees, the station could no longer break even on its expenses.

I remember stumbling across the tiny radio station on one of my first nights in the East Village. I had no idea what it was then, the small space and full-glass door made it look like a DJ booth for some nearby party. I can understand in this age of Pandora and Spotify why a place like EVR can’t make ends meet, but I’ll miss walking by it at night.

About two years ago, the East Village’s cute Japanese JAS Mart grocery on St. Marks shut down and a 7-Eleven took its spot, and offered prices so low that everyone thought they were going to put the (admittedly expensive) neighborhood bodegas out of business. The local conflict even made it to the pages of the New York Times, and the St. Marks store suffered at least one broken window during a protest.

Just this morning I noticed the St. Marks 7-11 is now shut down…I’m sure it’s been that way for a little while but had so expected 7-Eleven to dominate (in the same corporate-backed way that Starbucks has) that I mentally didn’t even picture it closing down. So here’s photographic proof.

The Kentile Floors sign over Gowanus lit up last night for the first time in 100…er 20 years. Here’s what it looked like from the Smith-9th St. stop.
