    story: i recently was invited onto a chatroom for my neighborhood, which was nice, and i thought i might connect with some locals. it turns out to be populated by whingers for whom everything sucks and is deblasio's fault, including the presence of bicycles (which now have their own lanes, an intolerable thing), the completely out of control crime (there have been some muggings around here recently, which means everything is going to hell despite the fact that crimes in all seven felony categories is at an all-time low), trash is sometimes left on sidewalks (pictures! look at it!), and the state of the subways. do you know that someone saw a rat at the local subway station recently, and that some homeless people sleep on the benches? things never heard before in the history of new york city. so i had the instinct to post this bit of guerilla advertising, but i wouldn't get away with it.

    Saul Leiter also did some amazing colour shots in NYC.

    Saul Leiter - A Master of Color Photography

    I saw some prints of his in Somerset House a few years ago and they were stunning. All these people were shooting with slide film that we'd now consider super-slow, too.

    point of order though, these look like state cops, not NYPD
