Milk truck in the window of a Huntington Avenue drug store

Last fall, Marc Hermann juxtaposed old crime and accident photos from the archives of the New York Daily News with photos of the scenes in modern times. The results are wicked cool.

On cue, a green sardine can came hurtling towards me, but then proceeded all the way up to the intersection before speeding off and blowing it's horn. That was certainly not typical. From my knowledge of... Read more
