Pre-Inspiration

June 3, 2006 pm30 3:45 pm

For the first month of this blog’s existence, I linked to folk without saying a word or two. I am slowly correcting this.

Before teacher-bloggers existed, there was Kevin.

I first thought about doing something on line when serious New Yorker Kevin Walsh told me a few years ago that he had actually turned his crazy idea for a forgotten New York website into reality: forgotten NY. He’s got old streets and bridges, forgotten ads, forgotten neighborhoods. We’ve gone on walks where I’ve helped him find more stuff. (Not recently, which is entirely my fault). He does tours a few times a year. Cool guy. Cool site.

He was [at this photo-blogger gathering – (link inactive)] Friday with some others.

If I ever put up photos of the public outdoor staircases of Upper Manhattan and the Bronx, that will be entirely due to Kevin’s inspiration.

    I have been here since the dawn of time!

    (or the dawn of the photoblog, 1999)
