For those of you that don't know, the man on the left is Jerry Delakas. Jerry, 62, has worked in the Astor Place newsstand for the last 24 years.
Recently, the city has been trying to evict Jerry because he is not the legal license holder for the stand. The original owner of the stand, who first allowed Jerry to work there, passed along the stand to him when she died. But since he is not technically the legal owner, the city is trying to take it away from him. He has been granted a reprieve till November.
It will be a huge loss if Jerry is evicted.

Like any art, doing street photography is about putting yourself out there. I am always interested to see which of my work other people enjoy and respond to.
Usually, my favorites are fairly similar to what other people like, but often there will be photos that I love that other people gloss over, or photos that were afterthoughts that other people love.
It's why I am fond of the social media 'like' buttons and comments as it gives me insight into what other people think about my work. Too often I am cooped up editing in front of my monitor without anyone else around. I am always curious of other people's perspectives and how they view this stuff.
Anyway, this photo taken last week is one that I love. Does it respond to you? My explanation of why I like it is in the comments.
A few photos from the crazy storm tonight. Ran over to my neighbor's apartment. Somehow I caught a lightning strike with the camera handheld.
I love looking at old photographs of Central Park. So much of it looks exactly the same and so much (including the outfits) looks completely different.

Did parents really allow their children to roll around in the park in these outfits? 1871.
