- Saturday, June 21, 2014, My Neighborhood, My Time - Photography Exhibit Tour of Port Richmond's laundromats. From June 21- September 22, 2014.
Tour starts at 5:30 pm at the Spa Laundry, 2028 Richmond Terrace, then Grove Laundry, 41A Grove Avenue, followed by The Star People Laundry, 176 Port Richmond Avenue, Staten Island, NY.

My Neighborhood, My Time is a series black and white photography exhibits at laundromats in the Staten Island neighborhood of Port Richmond, presenting the vernacular architecture, environment, and objects that are often overlooked on route to the responsibilities of daily life. The goal is to create a better use of the idle time laundromat patrons already have on their hands and to redirect their attention to the captured details and beauty hidden in plain site right in their neighborhood.

My Neighborhood, My time is made possible by a DCA Premier Grant from, Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs
