Overlooked New York.
'Overlooked New York is a collection of portraits and interviews with ardent New Yorkers about their joyous obsessions.'
'It all started with the Puerto Rico Schwinn Club. I've seen them all my life, but I never knew why these old guys would be tricking out their bicycles with flags and horns and fox tails and mirrors. So I tracked them down and painted their portraits and interviewed them. That began my mission to discover the seemingly endless variety of enthusiasms pursued by New Yorkers, whether they were carried from immigrants' cultures from overseas or indigenous to the city landscape.'
'These are real New Yorkers who have found fascinating ways to unleash their joy on the roofs and rivers and parks and streets of New York.'
