Carmine Street Series #1

Welcome to the Carmine Street Tour, a companion to the previous Bleecker Street Tour. As you can see on the map, Carmine is a short street, just two and a half blocks between Seventh Avenue South and Sixth Avenue (also known as Avenue of the Americas).

Tip to tourists: Although we natives are aware that New York City would not be nearly as vibrant and exciting without you, we also have a bit of disdain for those who don’t know our ways. We consider “Avenue of the Americas” to be a municipal designation of monumental pomposity, not to mention too much of a mouthful. You will fit right in – and taxi drivers won’t sneer – if you call it Sixth Avenue.

Sixth Avenue is that big green stripe on the map, running north/south. Carmine Street begins at that intersection. The Tour will follow along the northwest side of the street to Seventh Avenue. Then we will reverse direction and return to Sixth Avenue along the southeast side of Carmine. Note that Carmine crosses Bleecker at the point where we began that tour [ <A HREF="http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?photo_id=6907957" TARGET=_top>http://www.fotolog.net/ronni/?photo_id=6907957</A> ] several months ago.

(Ignore that big red star. This is an old map that`s been marked up a lot.)

Bleecker Street was such a great tour! I`m glad to see there`s another one on the way. This is so much better than those cheezy big red double decker buses. ;)

There`s a really good record shop on Carmine Street (the name of which I do not recall right now) where I bought some excellent 45`s.

I looked at several shots last night but didn`t see him. Unlike AV I take just about 600 a month. It`s time to start digging at the red smudge. No mattter what you say there is something buried there. The fact you say its an old map proves there is something there.

    War is the plague that human beings bring upon themselves. It is also a plague we might be able to end. On any given day since you and I were born, some part of the world has been at war–in 2003 the total number of open conflicts was thirty. In the twentieth century at least 108 million people died in wars. Of the 20 largest military budgets on earth, 14 belong to developing countries. The United States spends more on its military than the next 16 countries combined

    "Echolalia" is an interactive installation based on images, sound and expressive typography.

    What I am after is to create a bank of images related to the theme "Echo” .
