Timothy Saccenti - New York

To me the most interesting and inspiring thing aspect of  new york is how your perspective is created by the level you exist at, physically, and psychically. most of my inspiration comes to me while traveling on my way to my destinations, New York is an amazing town for that.  You can walk, take the train, be underground/overground, cross rivers, see skylines, all on your way to work. Here's a few things I see on my way to my travels around town.

Manhattan (Place)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

The view of Manhattan from Brooklyn. I live in Manhattan, it's a claustrophobic place but feels like a small community. Only when I leave the island do i get the perspective of how massive and beautiful it is.

Williamsburg Bridge (Bridge)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

It's hard describe the experience of walking across a bridge in New York, but let's say, people wise, it's where you are likely to see a jogging hasidic woman pushing a baby carriage trying to avoid being run over by a fixed gear bicyclist barreling down at 60MPH.

Williamsburg Bridge | Lower East Side | Williamsburg | New York

Chinatown (Place)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

I live in chinatown, in the lower section of manhattan. It's one of the most densely populated areas in the world, which makes for amazing people watching. The inhabitants re-use [and inadvertantly re-contextualize] any and all material left around. Here is a perfect example of that. He Loves Dub.

Chinatown | Manhattan, Orchard + Grand street | New York

Bike Polo (Park)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

These guys play polo on bike. They smash into one another alot, like an outtake from Mad Max in a way. Its in the Lower East Side. These guys are crazy.

Bike Polo | Sara D. Roosevelt Park | Lower East Side | New York

The High Line (Park) (Bridge)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

The High Line is an amazing architectural achievement, building a massive park on a disused elevated subway..it's possibly the more beautiful piece of public works recently completed in Manhattan. I actually prefer the view from the highline than the park itself, giving the chelsea area a feel of a scene from Bladerunner if it had a kiddie park built into it.

Address
The High Line | 529 west 20th street, Manhattan | New York

JMZ Train Line (Bridge)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

The view from the JMZ train. The only train that crosses the East River over the Williamsburg bridge, it's a stunning, graphic entry/exit, which brings us to another amazing part of New York..Bridges...

Address
JMZ Train line | Essex street station | New York

BirdMen (Park)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

These guys in Lower East Side are called the "BirdMen". Each weekened these elderly Chinese folk bring their pet birds out to sing in the park to one another. This day it was cold, hence the Bird-coseys.

Address
BirdMen | Sara D. Roosevelt Park | Lower East Side | New York

Monster Island (Place)

New York by Timothy Saccenti

The community effort put into street art in new york is nothing short of staggering at times. Here's a recent Paint Pour at the closing of the legendary "Monster Island" space in Brooklyn.
