: rhythm city :They're part of a dance crew called Rhythm City. It's a non-profit organization, and the kids are clearly putting a lot of time and energy into the shows. They look good, but they were also natural performers -- happy to pose for a complete stranger on a side-street.
So a friend and I are milling around Long Island City, trying to find some interesting backdrops for a video project he's doing. There's this cool building on Jackson covered in graffiti (the back of it is even better, which you can see really well from the 7 if you go a few stops into Queens). We're walking around it, and all the sudden these rad kids start streaming out from behind.
