"The Central Park Five" "The Central Park Five" takes on the troublingly powerful impact that media can have on public perception.

"Park Avenue, New York 1953" I just came back from staying in a particularly famous hotel there for ten absolutely unforgettably amazing days! But what was outside the Hotel was where all the action was. Five minutes walk from The Rockefeller Centre. Twos items from Madison Avenue (of 'Madmen' fame). Ten minutes from Fifth Avenue Times Square. Fifteen minutes from Central Park. And I had my Camara with me. Bliss. See my Street Photography Boards over the coming weeks for images!).
