NYC Weights and Measures is a small gem that continues Cohen's cycle of poignant and activist street photography. «The Street» is an exalted location for him, a place where democracy, such as it is, has a shot at actually occurring. Cohen's anger at restrictions placed on shooting in New York City, in the wake of the Patriot Act, are tangibly felt in this haunting footage of a ticker tape parade for astronaut John Glenn.
