The New Museum

I used to live on Stanton Street, just off Bowery. In fact, I lived in three apartments on that one block alone from 2000 to 2005. I always compared Bowery to a river with a strong current, and that little stretch of Stanton as being a kind of "offshoot" from the main river: calm, but not far removed from the action.

I'm pretty sure it was early 2006 when they broke ground on the New Museum of Contemporary Art, which is on Bowery just around the corner from Stanton. Even though I was no longer living on Stanton, I'd pass by there at least once a week to check out the progress. For my most recent birthday my wife got me a much-needed external 320 GB hard drive. The first thing I did was dump all my scans since 2000 onto it. In this way I now have what is essentially a searchable database of images, and now it's much easier to find a picture. My old method of finding images involved a lot of guesswork and digging through 20 or so backup CDs. One of the first searches I did on the new hard drive was for "New Museum" and the above pictures were several of many that showed up.
