You know, Alice Austen herself was a serious documentary photographer. In other words, if she were alive today, she’d probably be an LS member….

Her house should provide a nice, intimate venue for viewing Nina Berman’s intimate portraits, I think.

On Sundays, the SI ferry leaves Manhattan every 30 minutes, on the hour and on the half hour. (Bus S51 will be waiting right outside the terminal for the arriving ferry.) On the return, the ferry follows the same schedule until 7pm; after 7 it leaves every hour.
