A piece of art that warms our heart.

"Hardly anyone knows that a secret tunnel runs deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2008, more than a century after it was begun, the tunnel has finally been completed. An extraordinary optical device called a Telectroscope has been installed at both ends which miraculously allows people to see right through the Earth from London to New York and vice versa."

New York of Yesteryear


It was in early months of 1990 when filmmaker Michael Galinsky turned his still photo lens on one of the many 'street markets' that found a home in New York City's East Village.

This particular market was on the perimeter of the parking lot on Astor between Cooper Sq. and Lafayette, now the site of the neighborhood's newest architectural atrocity.

Galinsky sums up not just the street market but the east village itself, "I loved the mixture of goods; as you can see in the book, one "store" carried a Trump book next to a text on Marxism, next to some porn, next to some hinduism next to a book about Van Gogh."

Watch the slide show here.
