NYC Grid is an exploration and documentation of New York neighborhoods showing photos of its buildings in the past and present.
NYC Grid is a photo blog dedicated to exploring New York city block-by-block and corner-by-corner. Each post at NYC Grid focuses on one block, a small segment of street (for example: 26th street between 8th and 9th avenues, or Ludlow between Grand and Broome) where it attempts to document anything of interest, be it architectural, cultural, or just a good place to get a burrito.
NYC Grid‘s creator, Paul Sahner, doesn’t dislike modern architecture or fear gentrification, he enjoys change and relish new ideas. He mainly feels that there’s something special about the time we’re experiencing. “Visual documentation is not the rarity it once was. While it may be unrealistic, and even a little ego-centric, I like to think that taking these photos and documenting the city like this is providing a glimpse into this moment for future generations.” It’s an amazing blog, both visually and literally and I highly recommend you to check it out.
