One in 8 Million

The New York Times has created an incredible online feature called One in 8 Million. It's a collection of photo essays that look into the lives of individual New Yorkers. The photos are accompanied by audio recordings of each of these people describing their life and their city as they see them. It is as beautiful and touching as it is fascinating and illuminating. I've chosen the story of Patrick Harris "The Boat Dweller" - a captain of sailboat in New York Harbor - to link to, but every one of the stories is special and each of you will undoubtedly have your own favorites. This is just a good place to start to get a feel for the site. Enjoy.
