Richard Howe has taken on an interesting art project: Shoot images of various Manhattan street corners in New York City. Here’s one shot of “Malcolm X Boulevard (Lenox / Sixth) from 111th Street to 147th Street.”
The Manhattan Street Corners is my working title for a project to produce a comprehensive photographic portrait of everyday life at street level in daytime Manhattan. Between March and November, 2006, I systematically photographed each and every one of the island’s roughly 11,000 street corners (the exact number is a matter of definition and, in some ambiguous instances, even a matter of judgment).
We appreciate Richard’s effort and we look forward to seeing the grittier side of Manhattan.
We want to see Alphabet City in all its grimy glory.
