A few shots from some afternoon walks around the office neighborhood, not far from the Manhattan side of the Holland Tunnel.

There’s something about the tunnel that feels very Old New York to me. It hails from an age of great public works and industrial ambitions, now strained by the city that keeps rising around it. Still, it remains stitched into the fabric of daily life in the city, overrun but not outlasted.
