Re: Gutter Critter

Yes, I think it's one of those New York raccoons!

Raccoon, Rat or a Cat??

What is that in the gutter? Looked like a raccoon at first glance...maybe a cat?

Re: Eviction Day

Maybe to a better apartment. I think they were involved in a rent strike that was in the news that year in New York.

Eviction Day

I wonder where these poor people went on eviction day?

Worth more than a thousand words

Wow, this photo is rich with stories—from the patient horses to the anxious family sitting on the steps to the woman walking in the street towards the camera. Personal possessions, loss of home, daily city life. Thanks for sharing it with the world!
