During a recent trip to New York, my first in 15 years, I wanted to stay near the old neighbourhood I lived in back in the 70's down on East 4th between 1st & 2nd. Well I found the perfect hotel situated on the corner of East 9th and 1st Avenue called the East Village Hotel.
During my recent trip to New York I had a Sunday free to wander around this great city that I was visiting for the first time in almost 15 years. One location that I'd read about and had wanted to see was the Highline, a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side, but more on that in another blog.
About a third of the way into the park I came to an area called the "Chelsea Market Passage", it was here that I came across Michel's stall and his amazing photographs. There was quite a collection of photographs on display and an introduction into his photographic process.
