This was taken on 7th Ave South, in between Morton and Bleecker, in Greenwich Village.

When I first moved to New York City in 1968, I lived on Bleecker Street. As Kid Rock sang in All Summer Long, &quotwe didn’t have no World wide web, but, man, I in no way will forget …


This set of pictures is based on a very straightforward concept: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To avoid missing something, walk both sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

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

Oh, truly, there’s one particular far more little detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly focus on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot pictures, I will have taken much more than eight,000 photos on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another numerous thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different spots in NYC where I traditionally take pictures. So I never expect to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth seeking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve employed to select the little subset of every-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. Very first, I will upload any photo that I consider is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no thought when or where that photo was taken, but it’s truly a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some pictures that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any person who looks at it. Naturally, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I will uncover other, much more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be capable to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that’s not recognizable to someone from yet another portion of the country, or one more part of the planet, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may well be some photographs where a &quotnon-local&quot viewer may well say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so exciting/stunning/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually hunting at the photographs about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how significantly had changed. Small by small, store by store, day by day, things modify … and when you have been about as long as I have, it is even more wonderful to go back and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did men and women really wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be searching at these every-block pictures five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, as well), I’m going to be doing my greatest to capture scenes that convey the sense that they have been taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no notion what we’re calling this decade yet). Or perhaps they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years right after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-certain image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I never know if I will eventually make a decision that they are worth uploading. Women’s style/designs are yet another clear example of a time-particular phenomenon and even although I’m absolutely not a style professional, I suspected that I will be capable to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really put on shirts like that? Did girls genuinely wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and lengthy in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another instance: I’m fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has a single, which undoubtedly wasn’t true a decade ago and it appears that everybody walks down the street with their eyes and their complete conscious consideration riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about something else that may be going on (among other items, that makes it quite easy for me to photograph them with out their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I cannot support asking yourself whether or not this kind of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … specially if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

If you have any suggestions about places that I should absolutely check out to get some very good images, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your tiny corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can e mail me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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