When considering local history, we often focus (naturally enough) on location: our buildings and spaces. But when contemplating local character, we must consider something more transitory—what happens within these precincts. As old Downtown disappears, even more than the loss of beloved structures, there is reason to mourn the passing of a rich tapestry of rituals, customs, and chance encounters that leave in their wake only echoes, rather than footprints. Above, a Financial District tableau that reminds us of Edward Hopper and Norman Rockwell, depicting the silent bond of trust between barber and customer. One of the few relationships still unmediated by an electronic device, this one is conducted with sharp steel in close proximity to the carotid. Yet, instead of danger, the scene radiates comfort. But, as small buildings and small businesses both disappear, for how much longer can such moments endure?
