Growing Out of the Hood with Dot

Published

Dot

Today’s guest on the show is Dot.

Dot grew up in Brownsville, Brooklyn in the early 80s and I met Dot at his eye wear boutique a few blocks from the Barclays Center. I’ve known him for a few years and I knew he did some time upstate but I didn’t know for what or for how long.

I asked Dot to share his story on the podcast and boy did he ever. Dot is the nicest person you’d ever want to meet (cliche I know) but his story of overcoming himself as well as life’s obstacles just moved the heck out me.

Dot talks about growing out of the hood but not in your stereotypical urban way. He just talks about it. He doesn’t glamorize but he does tell a compelling story.

I’m outta here, enjoy the talk.

Today’s guest on the show is Jeremiah Moss, author of Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul. We met up in Tompkins Square park to talk about the suburbanization of New York, the importance of policy, monoculture, Jane Jacobs, eminent domain, the impact of the High Line, Coney Island, neoliberalism, poor doors, colonial myopia and hyper-gentrification. I think it is safe to say that you should listen to this episode, twice. Enjoy.

We made it, we made it to “Episode One Hundred” of the New York Said podcast. If you think that is something to sneeze at then my best advice is for you try it. It’s not easy but it is very fulfilling.

Today’s guest on the show is Shantell Martin. How cool is that? Very. We had the opportunity to stop by Shantell’s studio at Mana Contemporary to talk about working with Puma, Kendrick Lamar, Tiffany & Co., living in Japan, making her way to New York, starting over, collaborations, finding the signature in her work, style, perseverance, and being nice.
