In 2013 I ventured into Brooklyn and Queens to do street photography. The first photograph of the abandoned trolley car was shown at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition show in the fall. I shot the second one during the opening of that show.

Two of these photos recall two very different institutions that met their end in 2013: the beloved New York City Opera, whose sets were sold from a warehouse before the final demise of the company, and an unofficial museum of graffiti called 5 Pointz in Long Island City, Queens. What will be the fate of art and artists in 2014 and in the administration of Mayor De Blasio?
