Old Time New York
My good friend, photographer Craig Cutler, has a new studio and it happens to be in Little Italy. The view from the rear window is really amazing. It felt like going back in time. Seeing clothes hanging on clotheslines was really cool. There used to be millions of clotheslines in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Now you don't see any. I was at the studio for a few days. One day I noticed that a Chinese lady was putting tons of clothes on all the clotheslines. She had stuff on hangers, on the fire escape and window sills. It looked like she was running a laundry service out of her apartment. There is always a story lurking behind the walls of New York city apartments.
