Taking a walk in the 19th century along Mulberry Street, to my right is Columbus Park which known as "Mulberry bend" back then. It had dangerous back alleys called Bandits Roost, bottle alley and Rag pickers rope.

There are residential homes as children playing and crying is evident. The sounds of banging doors dog barking in the background and gunshots rents the air.

The second artist describes a place in mid town manhattan in the 2011. The contrast btween the scene in 5 point and Yotel hotel is very obvious.
