Loyal readers might remember a brief post of mine from 2009 about local L.E.S. legend Clayton Patterson and his film "Captured." If you're not familiar with him (that's the man up top, as captured by Phillip Greenberg of the New York Times), his film is really worth your time.
In any case, I spotted this on Clayton's Facebook page and thought I'd pass it on. Herewith the Lower East Side's own resident shutterbug/historian taking a walk down Ludlow Street in 2015, and offering his observations on the toll of the last several years.
