The fine folks at MyBlockNYC, a new interactive mapping project, are picking their favorite MyBlock videos to show on PAPERMAG every Tuesday. Here's this week's.
TITLE: Sam Sopchek: Pigeon Man
LOCATION: 31st Ave between 37th and 38th street, Queens
DESCRIPTION: This short film on "pigeon man" Sam Sopchek was inspired by the film "Paul Tomkowicz: Street-railway Switchman," by Roman Kroitor, Stanley Jackson, and Tom Daly, which was part of the National Film Board of Canda's "Faces of Canada" series. This is a "portrait of those unsung, unnoticed people who keep the community running".
