Pepe: Bushwick Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above portrait) writes:

Pepe was outside a corner bodega when I complemented him on his appearance. Eighty- five, a retired truck driver, he raised eight children in Bushwick. “The worst thing about being old is having to bury a child. I have done that three times. One was shot working the bodega, another passed from illness, and the third in the World Trade Center.”

Today as I was knocking I spied a wheat paste mural being erected to commemorate 9/11 on North 5th Street. Those of you who have the opportunity really should check it out.

Before and After 911nys

The above photograph is probably in some part responsible for motivating me to write about Greenpoint. Like most things in my life, it was an accident. I had shot a roll of film, then 9/11 happened. Not having the means to buy more film I rewound it, thus creating this double exposure of life on Manhattan Avenue juxtaposed with Manhattan going black.

I do not want to suggest that this photo set is dark. It isn’t. The Garden Spot of the Universe and the people who live here are resilient and vibrant. But it does make one wonder about how things have changed since these photographs were taken.

My favorite is this one, lest you are wondering.
