This is the shit I love about New York City. For way too long, I was surrounded by the “New” New York, and lately, I’ve been hanging out within the Old New York. I love the ghettos, being fearful of whether or not I am going to be robbed or shot, and the beautiful people that hustle every day to put food on their tables. As crazy as it sounds, I admire it. Life isn’t easy, and going to these parts remind me of that.
These are photos from the Heights. A little on the nicer side of things. I look forward to photographing more parts of New York that we have forgotten. NEW POP!
