Photos From NYC & Brooklyn

If I had time, I do a photo booklet on each trip. The week I just spent on the east coast was particularly rich. But there are other pressing matters to attend to (running a publishing business, fixing a blown-out well, catching up on homestead maintenance), so the best I can do right now at this throw out some random photographs. I’m also going to try to recap the week soon. Such fun!

This was a tour of 1950s beatnik landmarks. The guide was saying that Allen Ginsburg, Peter Orlovsky, Neil Cassidy, Gregory Corso. et al had lived in this apartment building back in the day.

Who says the East Coast doesn’t have surf?

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
