Take the L Train

The very first week I moved to New York I looked at a moldy basement apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with no windows. Later that day, I saw a room for rent from an old school Polish landlord who said he would collect rent from me on a weekly basis – the deal breaker there was sharing a kitchen and bathroom with 3 or 4 strangers. After sleeping on my friend’s sofa in Williamsburg for a few nights (right beside the elevated train tracks where the subway came past every 30 minutes or so in the middle of the night), I ended up in Manhattan in a rodent-friendly building in Alphabet City. Anyway, my friend Tracy who helped me get started in New York has moved away but sometimes I still like to get back to the old neighborhood…xxx eddie

Gotta love those Polish landlords! I had one that would literally wake me up at 5 am the 2nd to get rent. Fun times.

Your photos inspire me every morning. Loving it!
