I originally started this site with the intention of recording a particular street corner - 2nd Avenue and 1st Street - each morning. The inspiration came from the man I found there every morning sitting in the sun in front of Mars Bar, reading the paper or doing the crossword. He was my constant - as the wall behind him changed almost daily, the man remained the same. I took it for granted that he'd be there every morning, thinking as long as Mars Bar stood, he'd be there, too.
