I found this in the back of a used Spanish textbook ordered on Amazon.com.
Walking down 11th Avenue, I spot this family photo on the sidewalk next to a car dealership. Dad, two lovely daughters and the photographer mom. The picture find was two blocks distant from the Hudson River. They abandoned ship and subsequent boating memories to urban turf.
In a box of discarded pictures from cleaning out the yearbook’s cabinets, this one jumped out at me as a favorite.
One of the last of the pictures found in the back of the old desk drawer – this one is a different style.
I found this a few months ago at a bus-stop. Apparently the staff do not understand that liquids don’t go in rice boxes.
I’ve been doing major housekeeping in my classroom, and I found some more pictures! On the back it says “Mother was a Freshman, 1950.”
Found this negative on 7th Street between 4th and 5th Avenues on trash day on a street where many old timers live. Must have been a two-for-one sale on hats and shoes that day the picture was taken! The negative was unusually large, 7mm x 11mm. They sure had cool cameras back in the day.
I sat down at a table in a diner and this was left with the previous party’s dirty dishes. I grabbed it before the waitress could clean everything up.

Found in the stairwell of a former residence in South Williamsburg. Someone needs to get it together. After all, NYC can be a tough place to reside if you are shit right now.
