Last month my friend Claire asked me to contribute to the Centre for City Ecology's City Builder Book Club's photowalk collection. This year, the book club is covering Arrival City by Doug Saunders. Arrival City looks at the growing importance of spaces within cities as entry points for the global urban migration wave.

For my contribution, I took a walk down Court Street from Downtown Brooklyn to Red Hook. This part of New York City is no longer a magnet for urban migration, but I looked at its history, particularly regarding immigration from Italy during the early part of the twentieth century. The walk is available online and embedded below.
