This old man was standing outside taking a photo of the gallery with his cell phone... he was taking photos up and down the street. I asked him why he was taking all of these photos and he said because he had lived here for 25 years and it was his first time back in 50 years.
I took this photo of Israel at 5 Rivington, where Thierry Goldberg is now. ArtLoversNewYork's Simon Cerigo and Nancy Smith had their studio and home here, from 1987 through 1996. Richard Prince's Spiritual America was at this address, 1983.
