I recently had a fascinating interview with photographer Alex Harsley, the owner of the 4th Street Photo Gallery. His life story will have you on the edge of your seat.
Part one on Evgrieve.com, where Alex talks about growing up on a farm in the south under 'corporal punishment,' escaping to the Bronx, and eventually becoming a photographer for the District Attorney's office, before being drafted into the army, working on 'chemical, radiological, and biological warfare.'
Part two on Evgrieve.com, where Alex talks about moving to the East Village, opening the gallery in 1972 to rampant racism, starting the Minority Photographers organization, photographing Muhammad Ali, and the story behind his famous and constantly photographed Dodge GTS Dart, with the penguin and owl in the front seat.

Any Olivia Benson fans out there.
It annoys me that this courthouse, the most beautiful in the area, has full time barricades keeping people off the steps, and the only time these barricades come down is when they film Law and Order.
