The Venice Chronicles, Part 2 of 6 - The Other Side
Aside from the Venice Skatepark, I usually spend my time in Venice Beach wandering around the neighborhoods brimming with street art.
If you’ve ever walked down Pacific Ave, you’ll undoubtedly see the beach paths cutting between the houses - and when the sunlight hits the paths just right, it gives off the eerie, yet alluring appeal to see what’s waiting on the other side.
I'm up here at @imperfectgallery in #Germantown , checking out #thememorymappingproject , a new photography series by my friend, Philadelphia photographer @jillsaull. She uses photos and ephemera to reconstruct a complex web of memories of her youth, growing up in the Far Northeast. Loved that she included a pair of child sized crutches and her bike from when she was 8 years old! Fascinating installation, congratulations Jill!! The last image is me with work by #KukuliVelarde entitled "Rocio" (1997) 😍😍
It feels like I never left. Good to be "home."
Aside from the technical aspects of a sale and the mistakes people can make in the paperwork, real estate agents know #neighborhoods and houses inside and out. Mendenhall calls it the "purple room" phenomenon. If a buyer wants a house with a purple room, she says, the #experienced real estate agent will know the house that's for sale that has that room. Just click on the link to bio to join us and get your #home expert by your side.
A study from realtor.com listed one Colorado city as one of the "Most Happening Hoods for Real Estate." The factors they based it on are affordability, number of older millennials residing there and who own properties, health of the job market and local salaries. Congrats, @Littleton, Colorado! You're one of the most in-demand places to live in the country! The Denver suburb is a hop, skip and jump to the Rocky Mountains (about 30 minutes), and you'll find plenty of fun things to do in Littleton's historic downtown. Oh, and did I mention you'll have a view of the mountains as well? Love it! Contact me if you're interested in moving closer to the Rockies! I'd be honored to help you in your search. #realtor#realtors#realestate#neigbhorhood#neighborhoods#millennial#millennials#rockymountains#littleton#colorado#denver#suburb#rockies
Take a walk through the footsteps of #history with @urbanarchiveny! 👣
. . .
Brooklyn Historical Society’s collections include more than 30,000 #photographs —7,500 of which can be searched in our online image gallery. You can also view BHS’s photographic collections in a few other locations online: the Digital Public Library of America is a rich resource of over 18,000,000 materials gathered from institutions throughout the country; and the newly released Urban Archive #app is a location-based mobile app that brings together digital collections from New York City #museums , #archives and #libraries . BHS has contributed over 5,000 images (and counting!) from our #collections to these #resources .
. . .
The Urban Archive app is particularly notable because of its #NewYorkCity focus. It allows you to access nearby #historical content, #walkingtours , and curated collections throughout the #fiveboroughs of #NYC , as well as interpret the images in new ways. For example, the #PhotoOfTheWeek by photographer John. D. Morrell depicts 5-7 Front Street in the #Dumbo neighborhood of #Brooklyn around 1958. John D. Morrell was a former Long Island Historical Society (now BHS) librarian who donated thousands of photographs that he took while walking through Brooklyn #neighborhoods . Since the collections are geo-tagged in the Urban Archive app, you can see some of Morrell’s walking patterns that show where he took photographs and the Brooklyn neighborhoods he frequented.
. . .
You can also learn interesting #facts about the buildings depicted in the photographs. For instance, you can learn how 5 Front Street (seen here) is one of the oldest surviving #office buildings in New York City. Long Island Insurance Company moved here in 1834. We hope you will check out the Urban Archive app to explore Brooklyn history in a new way!
