I did a commercial in an area of the city I don’t usually go in to: the Lower East Side. It’s been pretty much overrun by Chinatown, but there are still bars and clubs. The area I shot in is Mechanics Alley. I’d never been there before and it was really interesting looking, so I went back the next week with my camera. The morning started out with an audition by Delancey St, and then I headed south from there. Afterwards I just wandered around for a bit enjoying the day. Since it was the middle of the day in the middle of the week, most of these streets were really empty resulting in pictures of places without crowds of people (my own personal preference).
Next week: An interrupted walk on the Upper West Side.
