When I walk out of my apartment there are bakeries and butchers, churches, and restaurants that have been there for decades and I get a greater sense of that history. It’s easier to see it tucked in my small neighborhood than in the center of crowded Manhattan.
Lost City honors a lot of ‘lost’ landmarks in this constantly evolving place. And, despite its often harsh stance against real estate development, it usually invokes a lot of curiousity in me. When I learn about a place that no longer exists or threatens to vanish, I wonder about the past, present, and future. For that reason, I find the blog and all the places it features very inspiring.
Are there blogs you enjoy that feature places that inspire you?
