SYNOPSIS: In February 2004, after 30 years of my life in SoHo, I made a decision to leave SoHo and move to Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This video is about what it feels like to leave a place in which one has spent more time than any other place, and which was also the place of my family life. I am somewhere else now. It’s about beginning of growing roots in a new place, new home, with new friends, new thoughts, experiences.

SYNOPSIS: In business for over 40 years, Cato’s Army & Navy Store claims that not much has changed since it was founded in 1975. Yet while business has been conducted in the same fashion, much has indeed changed, from the clientele to the neighborhood. Owner and manager Ed Veneziano accounts for the old and the new in this short doc, testifying to the purpose this store has served over the years and his own commitments to the Greenpoint community.
