Out and about. Here are some photos Clayton Patterson sent us from the last couple months…

…Chris Stein, Power Malu, Debbie Harry, Shepard Fairey in front of the new Debbie Harry mural at Bowery and Bleecker Street…

…Marvin Moskowitz, tattoo artist son of Walter Moskowitz of the famous Old Bowery Boys tattoo artist. His dad left city after tattooing was made illegal in 1961. Serge from 3rd Street joined with his brother…

…Bridge Runners doing their Wednesday run around the city and across the bridges. The group shot includes John Joseph from the Cro Mags (holding bottle), Power Malu, and SASE (wearing BR t-shirt)…

…Me at the Martha P. Johnson documentary. MPJ was a transgender activist whose body was found in the Hudson river years ago. Cops said suicide, but there are many people who think it was murder…

…On Ludlow Street watching a fashion skateboard shoot…

…An interesting man I shot a photo of on the street…

…Roaming Ludlow Street during the solar eclipse on August 21…

…Dancing Queen on Houston and Avenue A, wearing a shirt that reads “I love you to the moon and back”…
