Broadway Dreams is an on-going project initiated by Keiko Uenishi (o.blaat)

Short summary: Map for a project 'Broadway_Dreams' initiated by o.blaat (Keiko Uenishi.) It is to study Broadway, Brooklyn. A spine of north Brooklyn. Currently, I'm focusing on 99c shops and Chinese takeout restaurants, plus their surrounding area and people. I created a series of extremely short video clips as if longer photos with sounds to capture numerous blinks of moments. The future development is to expand the focus, and invite anyone to collaborate to enrich the data, media, and usefulness.

Broadway Dreams (photoset at Flickr - where I uploaded photo images of Chinese takeout restaurants' menus, except one mini video clip which managed its way to the new Flickr video function. Almost all others failed due to the fact that they were 'too short' at less-than-a-second.)
