In his new book, Time and Space on the Lower East Side, Brian Rose unveils beautiful portraits of the Village in 1980 and then again in 2010. The images captured by Rose and photographer Ed Fausty go beyond the trite “before and after gentrification” graphic trope and attempt to penetrate the particular nuances of how the LES has morphed over the past three decades. (Moscot Opticians on Orchard, for example, is still Moscot Opticians on Orchard. And they still have a sort of goofy pair of glasses on their signage.) Check out the Morning News for a more complete gallery, and an interview with Brian Rose who—spoiler alert—is a self-described “master” of naps.
