Sin of the City.
What does this mean, exactly?
This blog seeks the truth: the image of the true New York. What are the city's secrets? Messages? Cries for help?

This is who we are and what we do.

South Bronx United PanoramaLast Saturday, March 22nd, a group of concerned residents, activists and friends joined South Bronx United to boycott the encroachment of Fresh Direct upon the Harlem River Waterfront.The group wanted to plant flowers on the property of the Harlem River Rail Yard, but were denied. So, a few members decided to peacefully protest.Why are we protesting Fresh Direct?1. There are enough trucks passing through the South Bronx every day.2.

South Bronx United Panorama

Last Saturday, March 22nd, a group of concerned residents, activists and friends joined South Bronx United to boycott the encroachment of Fresh Direct upon the Harlem River Waterfront.

The group wanted to plant flowers on the property of the Harlem River Rail Yard, but were denied. So, a few members decided to peacefully protest.

Why are we protesting Fresh Direct?
1. There are enough trucks passing through the South Bronx every day.
2. The jobs that are promised do not pay a living wage.
3. South Bronx residents have virtually no access to the waterfront, and this obstacle would only make the problem worse.

Essentially, Bronxites are sick of living in Manhattan’s dumping ground.

I am in love with 5 pointz.

reblogging my 5-Pointz photoset, since, it is now a relic of the past.

I apologize for my lack of content. I’ve been trying to upload some Van Cortlandt Park pictures for the longest but every time it takes so damn long to upload. I’ll try to get some fresh stuff soon.

In the meantime, here’s a look back at some photos I took of 5-Pointz, a once famous graffiti Mecca that is now painted white, set to be demolished and turned into condominiums.

In New York, it’s illegal to destroy art, but lawyers of the developers argue that graffiti isn’t art.

Can you honestly tell me right now th at none of this is art?
