from July 23, 2005 from pseudo-intellectualism
Back to Clinton Street. One of my inspirations for the Clinton Street project was a a very original website made by one of its inhabitants a few year's ago (the block between Houston and Stanton). It's gone now. The site had pictures, primary documents, interview transcripts, some audio of the interviews and little panoramic movies. Here's the panoramic movie to Dr. Levine's optometrist's office (not there any more). Here's an audio of Dr. Levine. Panoramic movies are not hard to make. All you really need is a tripod to rotate a camera in a progressive circle and an application that stitches the stills together in a movie. The great Susan Abdulezer taught me how. Synchronicity you say. I got my first pair of glasses about 40 years ago from Dr. Levine in the office in that picture. I am sure many more have done so similarly. I don't know if the doc is still alive. Dr. Levine, I think, is the father-in-law of LES teacher and all star "hocker and banger" Marvin Chertok.
