Garageboy's Personal Stuff
This section of my website is originally
dedicated in loving memory to
my late uncle Lawrence Kurtzberg, who was the first of my parents'
generation to pass away. Larry had a profound influence on his
own family, but
also was a very important part of my life while I was
growing up. I can say with certainty that my interest in photography
and my passion for cars is due in large part to his positive
influences. His good-natured spirit continues to live on. Many
more friends and family have passed on since 1997.
This page is re-dedicated to their memory. Each one, in their own
special way, touched my life in a very positive and loving way. I
miss them all and will continue to honor their memory.
In the years since this site was launched, I've never been certain
precisely what to put here. But a visual cue always helps.
Homer will help you if you click on him. But if that's not enough
action for you, then click on this link for the 2004

second stand, next to Eddie).
Photos, photos, and more old photos!
And so, I violate my own privacy.
I was born in New York City in the 60s. After leaving New
York at the
ripe age of 17, I moved back at the riper age of 30. If, for some
reason, you're trying to figure out
which Steve Bernstein I am (since apparently there are
thousands), I hope the information on
this page helps to narrow it down for you... unless you're a criminal...
My siblings, Richard and Linda, got all the talent, and this
section is devoted to their accomplishments.
Richard B. Bernstein is an
accomplished historian and writer. He's also a fellow Stuyvesant
Alumnus. Here is a list of only some of his
I never thought I would write words like this, but my late sister,
Linda Bernstein, was an
incredibly talented artist. She died in 2004 of cancer, and left
the world many wonderful paintings and photographs that chronicled her
life. I helped
her launch her website back in 1997, and she added many beautiful
the site over the years. I will continue to use her website to promote
her work, as I uncovered many treasures when I closed up her
apartment. In 2005/2006, you will start to see some of these
images posted on her website: Please visit the site at Millennial Renaissance

Photos of Travels and Friends
I have many photos from travels all over the world.
Many of the older pictures were taken with a Pentax Spotmatic that I
was fortunate enough to have for many years. It was older than me! I
started using a Leica R4, and in 2004, finally purchased a digital
camera, a Leica DigiLux. I have some great spontaneous shots and
videos with the new camera.

Here are just a few samples from my trip to Colorado
in 1996. I visited Four Corners, and managed to see parts
of all four states. Here are a few pictures of the sights. Oh, by the
way, that's me on top of that rock. You might actually be able to see
in this one. During this trip, I used a friend's Nikon FM.
