Herman

Working my way home today, but I got to see my good friend Herman this morning on Elizabeth Street.  I think he just got this new hat.

Big thanks to Judy Berde at the Roosevelt Island Historical Society for inviting me to speak about the suitcases.  We had a great crowd with lots of interesting questions.  And a note to any of you who are involved in organizations that might like to sponsor a talk.  I am starting to travel quite a bit and really look forward to presenting the project.  Next Wednesday the 17th, I be talking about some of my other work to the Schenectady Photographic Society.  If you live in the Albany area, stop by.

I first met Herman Boykin in Ithaca when our friend Warren roped us all into working on the Strand Theatre renovation.  In the late 70s he moved to New York City.  It is always so great to get together and hang out.  Had time to meet the new puppies and have a few beers before catching the train home.

This block of Elizabeth Street runs just south of Houston, and I know it really well because my good friend Herman Boykin started living there in 1979.  Before I moved to the City in 1986 and while I was living there I would spend a lot of time in the neighborhood.  There were many more shops like Albanese’s back then, but the area is really different now.
