THE HEIGHTS

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!

    About your post. The last two and a half months in my native East Flatbush taking a 90 minute commute home after finishing work 3AM or later walking thru Brownsville with mostly trouble makers on the lonely street. My camera and a laptop on my back and at my side def brought me back to my Old NY. I am tired of being on guard. Getting to old I think. Back to Willy B on Sunday where the only thing I have to worry about are loud hipsters.

    I read my reply again and it reads like a Film Noir script. Haha.
