In 1960 Ormond Gigli sat in his studio on E.58th Street watching as the brownstones across the street were being torn down and had an idea. He asked the head demolition guy if they could remove the window frames and the next day while the construction workers had lunch hour, with friends and models all in their own outfits, he took 15-18 shots from the fire escape with his 4 x 5 Speed Graphic. On a whim he got one of the most iconic shots of 1960 New York. Both his wife and the demolition guy’s wife are in the shot. “Girls in the Windows” ❤️ 💃🏼💯

  • Livin’ a little . This past weekend I got in the car and we just drove. I love road trips! It’s not for everybody but it’s something I enjoy and it’s usually spontaneous and just “wing it “ when the window of opportunity presents itself.  I remember my first long road trip, my gf’s from college and I jumped in the car and drove to Florida from Canada. No gps, just some clothes, a road map and a camera in a tiny car.  Another epic road trip was in 2017 I packed up my kids after the last day of school before summer break and drove across Canada. That was a bit challenging at times being the only driver but at least I had a SUV and gps lol we had so many amazing stops and created so many amazing memories. This past weekend was NYC! The time was short but just what I needed to get out of the funk I’ve been in. A break from the everyday routines. The winter blues. Some quick visits, a little shopping , sightseeing, great food and even stopped to hike some mountain trails ( Appalachian Trail) on the way back. 
These are my little soul adventures. Carpe Diem 😁
How do you feel about road trips??!

  • #Brownstone #IfYouLoveMe 🎶 I don’t want to rain on this parade but I’m starting to question the love that was made .. I’m not loving for just an affair, want a love that is based on truth not just dare .. you will not hurt my pride if right now you decide that you are not ready to settle down .. but if you want my heart then it’s time that you start to act like you’re mine in the light and the dark .. 🎶🎶

  • Our first #beforeandafter shot! Not a sexy one (we know) but the fact that the 2nd floor joist has been connected by a 2x4 is insane. Today, the joist officially became safe and we have our first after picture! It’s the small things. 🚧⚒🗜#brownstoneboys
