South Board St 8/2/2016

Its about 4:30 pm on a cool August day in Trenton, N.J. The traffic is bumper to bumper around this time in the city of Trenton, the majority of N.J state workers are rushing to get home. My thoughts are being drowned out by the sound of car horns and loud music. I put my headphones in my ear turn the volume up, tighten the laces on my Jordan 1s and start my journey down South Board St.

_DSC0888South Board St is about a 6 mile stretch that has a number of different business on it. From dinners to used automobile shops, mechanics to take the used cars you bought from those used car shops to get fixed. The Sun Arena and Trenton Social, about 6 churches and a public library that is closed. Its one of the main veins that runs through the heart of the city.

I’ve photographed different locations on South Board St  numerous of times before, there is always something new. Getting a nice amount of stares from drivers stuck in traffic I cut down a couple of side streets Adeline, Genesee, Beatty.

Once I cross the River Line tracks and make my way towards the Griffin Electric Company my journey comes to an end.

  1. Beautiful photography! In your narrative you point out the library that is shuttered on South Broad Street. I am the community outreach librarian at the Trenton Free Public Library on Academy Street. Part of my job is to promote awareness that there is a library in Trenton that is active and open, which provides a beautiful and safe environment for our community and children. It is on Academy Street, off of South Broad Street. We have free reading programs, children’s programming, and adult programming. We offer free computer skills for everyone and access to computers. We have a beautiful Trentoniana’s room that features Trenton’s rich history. A library is still here. If the public thinks there are no libraries in Trenton, we run the risk of low literacy and computer skills, which sets up our children to fail. Please consider photographing the library on Academy Street, built in 1902. Thank you!
