New York Winter Night - East Village Street in the Snow- By Vivienne Gucwa On cold, beautiful winter night in New York City, snow covers the city streets of the East Village - a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan.

St. Mark's Place at Night - East Village - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa
When the days concede to night in the winter, there is a certain comfort in the glow of neon city lights.
This particular view is of St. Mark's Place in the East Village. The cow belongs to the restaurant Mark and the neon belongs to Andromeda Tattoo and Piercing. The sign that is partially concealed is Rockit Scientist Records which was a great records store that dated back to the mid 1990s when the East Village was home to far more records stores and had a more eclectic vibe.
There is a coldness to neon that is eclipsed by a peculiar sort of warmth when the windchills dip into the single digits. It's a sign of life. People tend to huddle under the glow of the lights in the winter with a frequency that isn't seen as much in warmer months as if they are city moths drawn to the glowing promise of warmth.

New York Winter - Tompkins Square Park - East Village- By Vivienne Gucwa The clouds squeeze the last bit of light from the sun onto the city below. It falls over trees and buildings: liquid promise spreading onto a landscape de-saturated by winter's icy breath. In the wake of winter's gasping utterances, the sun uncovers the world that hides behind boisterous trees in summer. And a smile spreads across the city's face for a moment: warm and golden hope spreading itself over the remains of the day. ---

Reverie-wayfarers - East Village - New York CityAt night when the city pauses, street lights flicker; electrical synapses trigger dream sputters and whirring blinks of sleepy eyes open and shut in the darkness. Traversing this elaborate noir dreamscape, reverie-wayfarers pause; stop-motion refugees lit only by the cool blinks of neon signs. In these solitary single frames, night’s blackness vignettes these stolen illuminated interludes cradling them in its steady embrace. ---

Gravitational collapse - Night - East Village - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa As the city moves furtively into shadows, buildings render themselves one by one in the cold glow of street lamps whose light burns brightly against the dark expanse of night: supernovas pushing against gravity and their inevitable collapse into themselves. And we wait: unaware of the solemnity of the situation. We wait under these man-made white dwarfs pushing our dreams to the skies beyond our grasps forever propelling ourselves forward while standing completely still. --

Night Visions - Street Art - East Village - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa
When I was really young, I used to imagine that at night when the majority of people went to sleep in New York City, all of the graffiti and street art on the walls would come to life. Every figment of an artist's imagination, previously bound to the confines of a wall, would finally get to roam the city streets with abandon.
I still like to think this is the case. While reality is never quite as vivid as my imagination, the magic of photography keeps those sorts of dreams alive. I remember waiting in front of this mural for a long time at night for the right person to breathe life into the scene.
As the star of the cinematic scene in my mind approached, I couldn't have been happier. She walked onto this colorful urban set and it was as if she had merely leaped out of the mural only moments before.
This colorful street art collage of pop culture and comic book inspired figures once graced a wall on the corner of Houston and the Bowery in the exciting neighborhood of the East Village in New York City.
