Description Columbus Avenue and 89th Street, New York City, 1983. . . back when the Upper West Side was still Frontierland. A few forsaken prewar buildings, proud of their habitable human scale, red brick and sculpted masonry, tried in vain to hold back the march of tinted cinder block boxes, AMC Pacers battled dumpsters for precious parking, trashcans doubled as space heaters, and snow made you her bitch.

I have always taken photographs. In 1972 I moved to Manhattan following careers as actor, singer, songwriter, taxi driver, waiter, projectionist, headshot photographer, wedding photographer, graphic artist and software engineer. In 2008 I moved to Penn Yan and opened La Belle Vie Bed & Breakfast. And I've always taken photographs.
