New Photo Series is Documenting One of Manhattan's Endangered Species, Single Story Buildings

Local architectural and environmental photographer Adam Friedberg recently began documenting every remaining single-story building in Manhattan. As these structures slowly become replaced and forgotten, Friedberg's works will one day be a historical record. From Friedberg's blog:

Of particular interest to me, and in many ways this project’s point of germination, is the negative space these single-story buildings create. They open the street to the sky, providing a vista that can be enjoyed by all of us. With air rights, sunshine, and city views so valuable, and with the polarization of wealth having a direct impact on the area’s demographics, how much longer can these squat buildings stand?
