TODAY I have decided to show you the meaning of cool. “Oh thank you Blackmarket Boo, how kind of you, omg at last omgggg!!!” you respond, which makes me vaguely suspicious. But seriously I have found the land of cool, its name is Alphabet City. I explored this region of Manattan when I was documenting a few neighborhoods for Inside New York, and I found such a great synthesis between street art and people, plus skateboard culture, friendly music venues like Banjo Jim’s, and highly rawthentic trash cans which ESPECIALLY pleased me. Behold! Your As, Bs, Cs.
