5 years of Out and About in the East Village


On Aug. 1, 2012, we introduced a new weekly feature by East Village-based photographer James Maher called Out and About in The East Village. The ongoing feature takes a quick snapshot of someone who lives and/or works in the East Village.

Anyway, here we are five years (and a day) later. The first subject worked for Mama's Food Shop on Third Street at Avenue B. (Before our interview was published, Mama's announced its closure. That seems like a lot longer than five years ago.) Other Year One alum included Derek Berg, today a valued EVG contributor.

Many thanks to James for continuing to provide us with these features. And thank you to everyone who has shared their stories. You can find them all at the links below...

Recaps by year:

• 2012 here

• 2013 here

• 2014 here

• 2015 here

• 2016 here

• 2017 here

Thank you, Me, Maher, and Grieve, for this wonderful series. I always look forward to hearing about my neighbors, and love it when the old-timers talk about an aspect of the neighborhood from long ago that I had forgotten about.

Thanks so much Gojira, and thanks for the comments over the years! It's a pleasure to be able to do this and hear everyone's firsthand stories. I consider myself very lucky to be doing it.
