Caution! Some yucky images at 1:10 and beyond. But I actually had a nice talk with one of the construction crew. He shrugged, but then nodded and acknowledged the sad contrast of people sleeping on the street while luxury apartments are being built right in front of them. We’re in the middle of an economic depression. That’s right! Not a recession. When more than 10% of the population is unemployed, you’ve got yourself a full-blown depression. How long do they last? Years. This one is over a year old already, it’s just that nobody wants to call it what it is for fear of creating panic. I should get off at Pershing Square some time and roam about with my camera. What a horror that is! Like the veritable Black Hole of Calcutta.
