After hearing the the #UniteTheRite2 group left, #Antifa took to the streets. Marching until the police kept them between 13th and 14th streets on G ave. The police used mace to disperse the crowd and some ran into a construction building to escape from the chemical and the threat of arrest. @nytimes #nytassignment

Ever wonder how your copy of @nytimes arrives to your bodega? Or gas station? Grocery Store? I got to watch the whole process and it was one of my favorite assignments... maybe because I’m a nerd. Maybe because I love process pieces. But swipe here and look online to read about how the @nytimes goes from reaching deadline in #NewYork to printed at a plant in #Kentucky to a weblike delivery system in #Ohio. #nytassignment #KeeblerElfFactory

Manhattanites are looking for a beach. Every borough in #NewYorkCity has a public beach except #Manhattan. Some are advocating for a beach area to be created near #FortWashingtonPark or in Central Park’s #JacquelineKennedyOnassisReservoir go online to read more @nytimes #nytassignment #EmpireSwift

NYC’s oldest ticker tape parade car is a 1952 Chrysler Imperial Parade Phaeton. From @nytimes reporter Winnie Hu- “For more than six decades, its back seat has been filled with a who’s who of world leaders and celebrities. It gave rides to the Apollo 11 astronauts, the American hostages freed from Iran and the Yankees fresh off a World Series win.” I got to ride in this thing and it was pretty exciting, even if everyone we passed thought it was the car JFK was killed in... (Its not). Read more online @nytimes or in today’s paper! #nytassignment #EmpireSwift

A day late but for last weeks #NYTVows section I got to photograph Joseph Schneier and Allie Brashears as they got married in #GlenHead #NewYork. Both bride and groom were born as the opposite gender they present as now, “love is finding the person who understands you more intimately than you ever thought possible,” Ms. Brashears says, “he looks very different than he did two years ago, but it hasn’t changed who that person is inside and who I talk to. It would have been overwhelming not to have had each other.” The two fell in love quickly and live together with Mr. Schneier’s children in #Queens. Read more online or in the weekend paper. #nytassignment @nytimes #EmpireSwift #LoveIsLoveIsLoveIsLove #EqualRights
