Brian Rose has an affinity for East 4th Street between Bowery and 2nd Ave. He used to live on the block and even worked at Cooper Square Committee for a period. On his blog, he recently posted an item about East 4th Street, remembering his experiences on the block as well as congratulating Cooper Square Committee on their 50th anniversary.
Rose is a photographer and uses his blog to show the parts of New York that strike him as interesting and compelling. We at Fourth Arts Block wanted to share his work and his attention to this block so that you could enjoy someone else's view of the East 4th Street Cultural District.
Rose's attention to detail and his appreciation of the simple, smaller aspects of New York come through in his photographs of stoops and sidewalk graffiti. He is able to find the grandiose in the niches of this city and for him to show his interest and appreciation for our block is appreciated. So check out his stuff and enjoy!
