“Being a native New Yorker, I feel that my city is the most exciting in the world. It’s uniqueness, high energy level, and diversity of people and architecture make it a perfect city to document in photographs. This was especially true in the gritty 1970s and 1980s, when these images were taken.  Though they are evocative of a New York City that no longer exists, I feel that they still have a certain timeless quality.”
 
Museum’s opening hours: Monday-Sunday 10.00-22.00.

TAGREE, I love the cultural work you do, I donate to show you my sincere appreciation:
