Backstory: Randi is a social worker whose program was defunded. The State of NY has apparently concluded that there are no more mentally ill chemical abusers in need of case management services…who knew? (Here’s to a New Year that’s kinder to Randi — and New Yorkers in general).

Backstory: Bay Street, Clifton, Staten Island on December 27, 2012.

Another nor’easter, ‘another rainy day in New York City’ (Robert Lamm). I saw Chicago (finally) at NYC’s Beacon Theatre on August 21, 2011. The rear stage door was propped open as roadies brought in equipment. It was pouring outside.

Equipment: Fuji Z33WP (WP as in Water Proof)

Backstory: Hunter Avenue runs through the first neighborhood I lived in on Staten Island (Dongan Hills). Two months after the hurricane it is still reeling. There are portable toilets, generator powered streetlights and police radio cars on every block. To see a video of people from the area speaking out visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORHHryedd9c.

Equipment: Nikon D40 / Sigma 18-200mm f3.5/6.3
