Nolita

I spent 3 hours in Nolita on Friday afternoon. I wandered its streets and ate lunch in the park on Spring Street. I got there just after 1 p.m. just in time to find people enjoying their lunch hour.

Nolita starts at Lafayette Street and ends at the Bowery. It runs from Spring up to Houston. It lies just north of Little Italy

  3. I ate at Pomodoro’s (corner of Spring and Mulberry) last weekend. I live in North Carolina, so seeing this picture is very cool. They’re all great.

  4. These pictures are wonderful! Last time I was in NYC, I didn’t get a chance to really explore Lower Manhattan. I really want to go back and just spend all of my time down there – there seems to be so much interesting stuff that I haven’t even seen! I’ll have to refer back to this site when I do go.

  5. WTO & Human rights law- involves lots of reading of WTO papers. you can see why fine bloggs prove a welcome distraction. pics & anecdotes are great for being transported from sterile libraries.

  6. Nice again Mihow! I need to learn how to develop B&W in my bathroom…. I just took my Holga out for the first time!

  7. Lana – it’s easy as pie and you can pick up all you need for very little money. For the Holga, you’ll need different reels than for 35mm, but reels are only like $5 anyway. Let me know if you want a checklist!

  8. For sure. He’s absolutely right. It’s so easy, as a matter of fact, I have often wondered why everyone doesn’t do it. :] We’re more than happy to list out what you need, etc. (I’ll let TJ do it. He’s better at staying focused.)

  9. Is developing b/w film dangerous? With proper adult supervision, could kids do it?

  10. Charlie, how old are we talking?

  11. if they’re old enough to not put it in their mouth, lick their fingers, splash things in eyes, etc, then they could potentially do it

    the stuff isn’t much of an irritant on the skin—but you don’t want it on an open wound, an eye, or your mouth

  12. Charlie – with supervision, they can totally do it. It’s not that bad. Get some lab goggles to protect their eyes, and don’t let them drink it. That’s about it. The vapors and such from the developers we use aren’t a problem.

  13. The talk of your boys learning how to develop film just reminded me of a story. there was a girl in middle school. Her name was ellen. She was teased endlessly for being a huge geek (huge curly, frizzy hair, thick glasses, never spoke, a huge geek. poor gal). Anyway, she was picked on all the time no matter what. But what made it worse for her was when she discovered photography. She would come into chorus class right after photography smelling of fixer, which, to the untrained nose, can smell like pee. I knew the smell because i developed film, but other more popular and therefore vicious bitches were RUTHLESS to poor Ellen. Man, I feel badly knowing I never stuck up for her but instead just sat back and watched in horror. There was one time where I took her aside and told her what was going on. I told her they’re asking if she pees her pants because of the fixer. But she didn’t seem to understand. Poor gal.
    I thought about her last night, however, and imagined her to be a brilliant photographer. I wish I could remember her last name. I’d google her. :]

  14. God how I love your photography. You are shedding some much needed light on this poor woman who has never been further east than Wisconsin and who dreams of one day visiting your fine city. A real life glimpse into your everyday just blows me mind and makes me think of just how different everything is here compared to there, but yet, here we are very much alike n’ shit

    Thank you so much damnit!

  15. I really enjoyed your pictures. I love seeing photos of NY that aren’t postcard-ish skyline shots. These are just snapshots of life.
