Bob Arihood, RIP

News on EV Grieve that photographer/activist/writer Bob Arihood died yesterday.  I didn't know Bob at all well, other than having met him briefly several times, but I know how loved and respected he was, particularly in the East Village, whose world he chronicled in the blogs Neither More Nor Less and Nadie Se Conoce.  He built an amazing body of work. He will be missed terribly.  This just takes me back a couple of years to the death of the writer Bob Guskind, whose blog Gowanus Lounge was so important to so many Brooklyn residents, and whose tough newsman investigative skills and tender heart for the underdog won loyal friends and readers.  In both cases the loss seems inestimable. Two good men gone too soon.

Gone too soon for sure. I'm really going to miss Bob and all his great work. R.I.P. Bob.
