Citizen of the Month

the writing and photography of Neil Kramer

They Built This City



  1. thanks Neil. I love these pictures.
    Remember the construction sites with holes on the sides of the wooden walls so people could peer down into the hole and watch the construction? And the signs “dig we must for a better NY”? I thought that was about the coolest thing ever except for the semi-circular building on Central Park South and I believe Sixth or maybe Seventh–which I wanted to transport down to the Village where I was definitely going to live as an adult.

  2. My gosh you are good at this. Especially love the second to last shot with the young lady’s leg just visible.

  3. Amazing shots, especially the fifth one – the close-up picture of the guy with the construction helmet.
