Forgotten NY

forgotten-ny-2_535×230.jpg

Kevin Walsh has made it his mission to document those tiny bits of New York City history that many of us walk past everyday without even noticing. After moving to Queens from his native Brooklyn, he began photographing ancient street lamps, faded advertisements, and left over rail lines. He realized that most people have no idea how much of the old NYC is still all around us, but disappearing quickly. His desire to share his discoveries and preserve these memories led him to create a blog, and then a tour company to lead other people through the alleys, buildings and landmarks they might have missed on their own. Forgotten NY is now a book where this amateur historian shares his research, references and photographs of all these hidden gems. It is a true guide book to a New York that may not be visible much longer.
