How does your website or entity represent or contribute to the local community or borough which you represent?
When we were doing the project (which was originally an interactive installation for the new york public library) i was still living in manhattan. (moved to brooklyn in the meantime)On Broadway represents life in the 21st century city through a compilation of images and data collected along the 13 miles of Broadway that span Manhattan.On Broadway explores how a linear street can be used as a snapshot to exemplify and showcase the diversity of local neighborhoods it runs through.The result is a new type of city view, created from the activities of hundreds of thousands of people.
