East Village resident Sally Davies moved here in 1983 ... and has never stopped taking photos... the painter and photographer shared a few more recents shots with us...
"I like to shoot things that don't necessarily reveal their time, and there are still lots of those visuals here," she said.
"People often think my images are of the old days, but really they aren't," she said. "Those things are still around if you look."
"That wheelchair was on the roof of a buildilng directly outside my living-room window — a big party house. One morning after a wild party, the wheelchair was sitting there," she said. "And it sat there for about three years. So I got several pics of it, in different seasons. Then one day it was gone. Poof."
We also found a photo of neighborhood legend Eddie Boros in her portfolio... Boros, who erected the Tower of Toys in the Sixth Street and Avenue B Community Garden, died in April 2007...
"[There was] nobody like Eddie. I miss him."
Find more of her photos and info on her website.
