Summary:
"It has been a decade and a half since a streetcorner book vendor and intellectual named Hakim Hasan introduced Mitchell Duneier to the people he came to write about in the book Sidewalk (1999). Now Duneier has collaborated with director Barry Alexander Brown and photographer Ovie Carter to provide a visual presentation that begins where the book ended. It updates the stories of Ron, Mudrick, Ishmael, Butteroll, and other unhoused vendors on Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village, showing what happened as they struggled in the wake of new economic and political realities, including those associated with September 11, 2001. It also contains footage from an interview Duneier did with Jane Jacobs, her last before she died in 2006. The DVD also contains a panel discussion about the film with Cornel West and Kim Hopper at the American Sociological Association's annual meeting; and Duneier's introductory lecture on ethnographic method, in which two sidewalk vendors visit his Princeton class."--Container.
