Harlem: 1970-2009 Photographs by Carmilo José Vergara

from The New York Times

In portraits, as in architectural pictures, time marches on. We learn that this man is Eddie from Selma, Ala., and that he farmed an empty lot on Frederick Douglass Boulevard between 118th and 119th St. in 1990.

We further learn that today, a luxury apartment occupies the lot and “a Starbucks has opened on the exact spot where Eddie stands.”
