A couple of months ago I was out shooting on Visitation Street, and the girl in the middle here called me over to take a photo. The guys were a little reluctant at first, but when we all got a closer look at each other it seemed like a group photo would be a good idea and so we made this one. They were hanging out right next to the Community Justice Center so it's a little ironic that they're throwing up signs.

A snake-like hose. A sinking green cone. A plywood bridge over a driveway stream. A right-angled street light that doesn't reach the ground. I just found something (or everything) unexpected and un-New York City about this humble lot on Van Brunt Street. (as always, the photos look better bigger. and you can see them that way if you click on them.)
