In the last New Yorker issue of 2004 (I’m doing some catch-up reading), Ben McGrath has a fun Talk of the Town piece on Caleb Smith, a guy who walked every street on the island of Manhattan over the last year and a half.
The end of the piece mentions Mike Epstein, of the excellent Creative Commons-licensed photography blog Satan’s Laundromat. Mike has taken up Smith’s peripatetic legacy; he has “so far logged just two dozen miles, but he has plans for one-upmanship. He intends to do Roosevelt Island.”
