Together we set out on a discovery of TriBeCa’s vintage advertising, faux vintage ads & architectural attractions. Airing of this episode of Booker Travels is tentatively set for the Spring of 2014.

Fading Ads of Greenpoint Walking Tour 2013

Today I conducted a walking tour of Greenpoint Brooklyn with Preservation Greenpoint. The tour was based on last year’s tour map- Greenpoint Fading Ads Walking Tour – Google Maps . Here are some of the images I found interesting on this trip. It was a glorious day and it was great to meet Matthew and all of the Greenpoint Preservation enthusiasts!

 

10th annual Open House New York – PLANET CHOCKO – art/music/movies/beyond – October 9th, 2012 by Mr. C

On Saturday, I was able to attend 3 open house NY events. The 1st was a walk through Chelsea to rediscover old NYC and the fading ads that silently adorn to the buildings as people passby without ever noticing them. The handpainted signs/ads that cling onto these old buildings tell a great story on the history of our city! Photographer, author, and NYC Historian – Frank Jump led the talks and walks with much enthusiasm & knowledge! Checkout Frank’s book & blog called ‘Fading Ads of New York City‘. He seems to have a great passion in unearthing the New York of yesteryear by discovering and examining old signs and the businesses they were representing.

(The enthusiastic Frank Jump leading the talks & the walks on Fading ads in NYC! He takes us to a few signage gems in the Chelsea/Flatiron area.)

From New York’s iconic skyline to its side alleys, the new is perpetually being built on the debris of the past. For nearly twenty years, Frank Jump has been documenting the fading ads that are visible, but less often seen, all over New York. Disappearing from the sides of buildings or hidden by new construction, these signs are remnants of lost eras of New York’s life. This photo-documentary is also a study of time and space, of mortality and living, as Jump’s campaign to capture the ads mirrors his own struggle with HIV. During this presentation that will focus on the fading ads of the Village, experience the ads–shot with vintage Kodachrome film–and the meaning they carry through acclaimed photographer and urban documentarian Frank Jump’s lens. His book,Fading Ads of New York, will be available for sale and signing.
