New Yorkers aren't known for their friendliness, so when Brian and I first moved to Brooklyn, we were worried that we'd be the odd couple on the stoop smoking and smiling at our neighbors who pass by rolling their eyes or staring vacantly ahead. While that is sometimes the case, we have been blessed to live near some very artistic, friendly people, especially those in our building. While we live here, Brian and I intend to photograph all of our friends and neighbors to dispel to some extent the cold, hard New Yorker stereotype that is, for the most part, a gross exaggeration.
This week, Brian photographed one of our favorite people, Adam, who lives one floor below us with his girlfriend. He and his girlfriend both finished law school last year and now work as lawyers in Manhattan.
