Weekly Recap: 9/4 - 9/10
This past week brought some new sounds and an exciting announcement. On Labor Day I took you to the border of the East Village and the Bowery for a Shepard Fairey mural on the side of the Cooper Square Hotel. On Wednesday we strolled down into the Bowery and stopped by the former Deitch wall on Houston. There we discovered JR’s photographic mural which is a part of his Inside Out Project. On Thursday, I made the exciting announcement of my trip to couple of cities in the next couple of months, the first one being Montreal! Finally on Friday, we had some fellow love as Katie featured my sounds for her Sounds of My City Project.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks. As a native New Yorker and with the heart of this project in New York, I would like to say that this project serves as a reminder of how resilient and vibrant the city is. The sounds paint a contemporary portrait of the city I have and will always love. My prayers and thoughts are with everyone and anyone affected by this great tragedy.
As always check out the maps below to look for the finds yourselves and always remember you can become a part of the project as well! Also Montrealites (is that the right word?) send me your tips before my trip this Thursday!
