With over 50 trees, a three-story water sprinkler that can also hold a movie screen, and tons of play features, Somerville’s locally-designed Chuckie Harris Park represents a truly innovative reclamation of urban space for public use.
We love Revere Beach. The first public beach in North America, it’s right outside of Boston at the end of the MBTA Blue Line. This weekend, there was an added attraction: a traveling carnival. We stumbled upon the party and shot some of the action:
Boxers, kids on stilts, clowns and people in giant sun costumes – it was the SomerStreets Carnaval in East Somerville, Mass.
Civil war soldiers, prohibition era barkeeps, and a few name-brand charterers hit the stage during the third annual NYC Beard and Mustache Competition at the Warsaw in Greenpoint, New York.
Busan is said to be the San Francisco of Korea. It’s a city of 3.6 million and a hub of education and commerce, but much life there remains based on the sea. That’s very apparent at Jagalchi Market, the biggest fish market in Korea.
The tuna auction floor of Tsukiji fish market is supposedly tourist-friendly, but we ventured into other areas to capture the behind-the-scenes action.
If you go into the frantic heart of Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market, you get to see so much, including this worker hauling tuna steaks (and heads) out into the daylight.
A surreal tale of abandonment, hope lost, and an attempted return to a life that can no longer exist, as told from the point of view of Hestor and Nestor, the twin headless mannequins of Joplin, Mo.
