New Field Guide Explains NYC’s Weird Antennae, Wiring and Some of Its Cameras

Ingrid Burrington

D&S artist-in-residence Ingrid Burrington’s new book Networks of New York: An Illustrated Field Guide to Urban Internet was profiled in this piece by The Observer.

Fifteenth Street used to be so nice to walk down. It has Chelsea Market, Artists & Fleas and the Highline overhead. Plus it ends to the west in that little park near the edge of the water. If you like 15th Street, though, don’t walk down it with author Ingrid Burrington. She will freak you out about 15th Street. In fact, if you walk down 15th Street with Burrington, she’ll make you want to avoid 15th Street. Except then you will realize that you can’t avoid 15th Street. Wherever you go, whatever you do, 15th Street is always watching.
