I’m very fond of this neighborhood, and have shot it and expressed that emotion before. I lived in the building on the right with the arched entrance for about 4 years in the early 90s, when the neighborhood was still mostly industrial and Brooklyn Bridge Park was not even an idea.
I shot this one morning earlier this year when I hit the park before dawn and seized the opportunity to get a night time shot of the deserted street with some timely headlight trails.
I was recently contacted and conducted a written interview with Street Photography London, an online magazine also available on Flipboard. It was a nice surprise to be approached for this interview, and I enjoyed considering the questions and writing up what I hope are thoughtful and interesting responses.
