One Step at a Time

Most times, the pictures I take have stories already attached to them. Other times, they have what I'll call "story receptors", where the story is as yet unknown.

This ramshackle bottom step on East 9th Street was one of those story-receptor pictures:

Ramshackle step.

I took this picture back in early March, but other than calling attention to its ramshackleness, I couldn't think of anything to say about it.

And then…

Ramshackle step, repaired.

…it was repaired! Not only that, but the staircase it's a part of was cleaned!

They should get some paint that matches the brown of the other steps, and paint it. Or maybe they can paint the entire set with another color — anything but that seafoam green that seems to be so popular on East 9th Street!

Fixing up the East Village… one step at a time!
