Urban Reawakening

This Kerouac cop pulled me in on flickr, a sort of blogspot for budding artists rather than Caribbean vacation souvenir swappers.

Montana-based photographer Josh Schwartzmann has a Robert Frank-like vision of New York that will move you equally as a narrative or as freestanding micro-moments.

Here, take this city that grows from the street.

Collections like Schwartzmann's help me slow down and remember that New York's details are always patient with we prodigal pedestrians who usually pass them right by.
