Image of the Day

This photo, by the supremely talented photojournalist Nicole Bengiveno, is from an article and slideshow in the New York Times about a guy who has lived in the same apartment (above the Swatch store in Noho) since 1975. It's got these great round windows – I have noticed them from the street but didn't imagine that someone lived there – and one of them has a bunch of little bullet holes in it. "Mr. Hinman suspects that they date from the years that the law commune whose clients included the Black Panthers had its headquarters on this floor."
