***************

This set of photos is based on a very simple concept: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To avoid missing anything, walk both sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, more adventurous photographers.

Oh, actually, there’s one more small detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the first of these "every-block" photos, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take photos. So I don’t expect to be emotionally attached to any of the "every-block" photos, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to select the small subset of every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I’ll upload any photo that I think is "great," and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, "I have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it’s really a terrific picture!"

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some photos that clearly say, "This is New York!" to anyone who looks at it. Obviously, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion; but I’m hoping that I’ll find other, more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a "local" viewer say, "Well, even if that’s not recognizable to someone from another part of the country, or another part of the world, I know that that’s New York!" And there might be some photos where a "non-local" viewer might say, "I had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/spectacular."

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually looking at the photos about five years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Little by little, store by store, day by day, things change … and when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s even more amazing to go back and look at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, "Was it really like that back then? Seriously, did people really wear bell-bottom jeans?"

So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block photos five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no idea what we’re calling this decade yet). Or maybe they’ll just say to us, "This is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11".

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-specific image; I’ve already taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I’ll ultimately decide that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another obvious example of a time-specific phenomenon; and even though I’m definitely not a fashion expert, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, "Did we really wear shirts like that? Did women really wear those weird skirts that are short in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?"

Another example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has one, which certainly wasn’t true a decade ago; and it seems that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious attention riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (among other things, that makes it very easy for me to photograph them without their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I can’t help wondering whether this kind of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, one last thing: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each day’s photo-walk. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most recent part of my every-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it each day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any suggestions about places that I should definitely visit to get some good photos, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your little corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can email me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …

And I like it much more for being a Victorian girl (though she might be Edwardian). However since she’s far back in time, I have no chance to understand (yet) who she is.

I love her hat, however I need to question if she just used such a thing on extremely rare specific occasions. Maybe the only reason this girl desired this picture taken of herself was due to the fact that she had this hat! Many questions unanswered.

What rules use in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside?

Ken MacQueen on monetary accountability in Canada’s poorest postcode

There has in current years been a sense that the normal rules do not use, can’t use, in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. It is a difficult place, its homeowners are complicated. The majority of them are bad, countless them are druggie and/or fighting with mental health problems. They are special. They are worthy of a break.

So its citizens wander across East Hastings Street, oblivious to traffic lights and traffic laws, and predictably they are slaughtered with terrific regularity. Vancouver Cops release a ticket campaign and are accused of an attack on the poor. So the response is to slow traffic on Hastings, a significant artery, to 30km/hr. What’s a police to do?

On any given day you can stroll past the streets and see homeowners smoking fracture or purchasing and selling a regular drug store of illegal drugs. Frequently addicted women spend for the transaction on their knees, or in the rear seat of a cars and truck. But exactly what’s a cop to do? Perhaps they bust a couple of dealerships and the occasional John, but the open drug and street-corner sex markets continue– since things are various here.

It’s now quite clear that rule-blindness likewise applies to monetary responsibility, as revealed March 20 in the release of 2 damning KPMG audits of the PHS Neighborhood Solutions Society (PHS), the leading government-subsidized service supplier in Canada’s poorest postal code. The excesses consist of:,600 in limo expenses for one executive in 2013;,300 for a trip to the U.K. to check out a heroin prescription program, necessitating, apparently, a 0-a-night hotel room;,800 for a cruise as a present to a society director;,000 for a “celebration of life” for a dead worker; a trip to Disneyland for another director. In truth, 0,000 in travel costs in between 2010 and 2012 consisting of journeys to Istanbul, Paris, Vienna, Los Angeles and New York City. And on and on.

By the time the province released the audits by B.C. Housing and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, PHS co-founders Liz Evans and her partner, Mark Townsend, and their combined 0,000-plus salaries, had actually been pushed out the door, in addition to the remainder of the board. The audits blew apart the credibility of PHS, which has, as even the auditors concede, done a great job of managing a hard customers.

The scandal raises serious concerns about the poverty market that grows in the area. A few years back The Province paper, after months of research, concluded that more than million a day in federal government and charitable cash was pouring into the neighbourhood. While it’s unfair to tar every charity, group, soup kitchen and store ministry with the exact same brush, one questions where the cash goes. And why so little appears to change. Every new company or housing task in the area that doesn’t cater solely to the poor or addicted is condemned by activists as “gentrification,” a dirty word for those who seem to choose the sorrowful nobility of the status quo. Outside of this neighbourhood such projects are commemorated as “urban renewal.” Even the language is different here.

PHS took root more than Twenty Years back when Liz Evans, a nurse, was worked with to run the flea bag Portland Hotel. She was expected to fill it with the tame bad, however she had other ideas. “We felt like we had descended into an area where individuals were getting sick and dying, really nice individuals that we learnt more about and no one else offered a shit about,” she said in a past interview with Maclean’s. “Junkies were junk and if you helped and supported individuals who were addicted, you were part of the issue.”

So Evans, and quickly sufficient Townsend, who became her hubby, broke the guidelines and turned the Portland into a home for the especially difficult to home– those with enormous dependencies, typically integrated with psychological health concerns. “We became sort of counter to the common logic of the day, which was if you take this population in off the street you’re making it even worse for them due to the fact that you’re allowing them.” Today, the common logic has actually changed. Stable real estate is undoubtedly thought about the initial step to a much better, longer, healthier life for the most susceptible. Evans and Townsend broke the rules, and they were right.

The years went by and PHS expanded. Drug overdoses and HIV/AIDS were taking a massive toll in the community. The heath authority stated an emergency situation. Extreme steps are required. A questionable monitored injection center called Insite opened in 2003. It is moneyed by the provincial Ministry of Health, through Vancouver Coastal Health, and its operations were committed PHS– among its earliest, and a lot of singing, proponents.

The federal Conservative government waged a legal war aiming to shut the facility down, lastly losing in the Supreme Court of Canada. Meantime, research study after clinical research study shows that Insite’s harm-reduction model has actually saved lives by taking addicts out of the alleys and into a safe place, and by lowering the spread of disease through filthy needles and without treatment conditions. Evans, Townsend and PHS staff were among those who broke the rules, and by any unbiased procedure, they were right.

Some years back I walked through the area with Evans and Townsend and was astonished at the scope of PHS’s endeavours. They have leveraged some million a year in government funds into housing, Insite, detox and treatment beds, a meal preparation and bicycle delivery service, clothing and craft shops run by the poor and recovering addicts, a cost savings bank ran through a regional trust company, a cafe, in addition to rent-paying companies in refurbished PHS-run buildings. A floor of one PHS structure has even been converted into a series of acute-care rooms, essentially an arm of St. Paul’s Medical facility, due to the fact that the seriously ill are less likely to leave treatment if they remain in familiar environments.

“This is a neighborhood of housing and connected things that is attempting to fit together like a gigantic jigsaw puzzle,” Evans stated at the time.

What went wrong? Townsend, in a series of interviews considering that his termination, firmly insisted PHS never spent federal government loan on anything other than programming and its nine-per-cent cut for administrative overhead. The other costs, like journeys for stressed team member, originated from “personal and non-government funding,” he said. Perhaps so, but it’s doubtful donors would knowingly have footed the expense for, state, a remain at New york city’s Plaza Hotel or a 0 baby shower.

Perhaps PHS got too huge. Possibly Evans and Townsend, after years of bumping heads and breaking rules, grew negative. Possibly, like a lot of activists in the area, they developed an entitled sense that this is their turf and they understand best; just leave the cash at the door and bugger off.

It’s a pity, really, so many advantages have actually been cast in doubt. But possibly now federal governments, charities and funding agencies will take a more difficult take a look at where the loan goes. Certainly a million dollars a day can purchase more than a daily dose of anguish. It’s time to work within the rules. The citizens are special. They do should have a break.
