Writing on the Wall (Part 2)

When I realized that we should caption Asha Agnish‘s photographs of Tribeca’s signs with the exact address of the building that each sign is on, I set off with my notepad. As a New Yorker for almost 20 years now, I don’t look up so often—I just go where I’m going. It was a revelation! There was so much I had never noticed. That’s how I feel about these photographs in general (part one is here, by the way). They make me see what’s right in front of—or at least above—my eyes.

Without further ado, here’s part two, the signs above N. Moore and White Streets….
