Both of these sites are quite extraordinary collections of images of New York, one focusing on the now, the daily, the quotidian delight of looking at the city; the other on the history of the city, its hidden past, the delight of discovering memories.
A reminder that "New York exists as many times as many times as there are New Yorkers."
"This is a Brooklyn-based photolog with an emphasis on strange signage, urban decay, and general weirdness."

"The infrastructure of a lost metropolis: The past is all around us in New York. It’s on the buildings high above and in the subways and tunnels deep below. It’s even in the paths the streets take. This site is your gateway to a New York City that existed long ago — and still exists in a hidden form today. On this site we’ll show you remnants of a NYC of long ago, as well as unusual scenes not ordinarily associated with New York."
