I started NYC Grid in November 2008 and at the time I don't think I could have foreseen the project continuing past a year let alone nearly two. In that time I've posted over 13,000 photos covering nearly every neighborhood in Manhattan and a few in Brooklyn. This Friday will mark the 400th block covered on the site and the ridiculousness of that number still hasn't quite sunk in yet.
If you've visited before you may notice a few changes today – namely everything. When I first designed the blog, the focus (oddly enough) wasn't on the photography. It wasn't until a few weeks after the initial launch that I began to focus on the images rather than the words and the true voice of the blog was found. Unfortunately the old blog was narrow and less-than-ideal for showing nice, big photos of the city. A change was long overdue.
The new site is wider, brighter, simpler and designed to be a true photo blog. If everything goes smoothly, you'll see even more changes in the coming weeks. I hope everyone enjoys the new digs and as always, feel free to drop me a line.
