The lost Past
The location i chose is the Federal building and post office that is a cross the street from the bookstore entrance of the city tech building.  I noticed it not too long ago when I went to buy books for class and saw a style that was of a time passed. There are also two parts to the building, one is the original and the other is the expansion. The original has more detail on the face of it with arches, towers and engraving. The newer section is more focused on functionality and has less of the style found on the old. also being across from a technical based collage and a court building covered in glass and steel seemed to fit well the idea of old and new.This was the main juxtaposition that I saw there. the following 52 photos were taken at various locations, heights and times to show case the entire building and the surrounding area. It is also the site of the Brooklyn Theater Fire on December 5, 1876 where 278 to 300 people died. There is sing or memorial at the location and few would even know about it. We can not see the past but it is there, where a court and post office now stand a play would go on into the night.
