A richly human book whose more than 180 photographs of New York in the first half of the twentieth century propel us on an evocative visual journey that from the very outset leads straight to the heart of the matter: the people who lived the turbulent, romantic, sensitive, funny, and sometimes painful or heroic lives that are New York. The photographs are thematically arranged (New Yorkers, immigrants, trades and professions, Manhattan, and transportation), and within these five sections, the images often combine in almost musical progression to provide a poignant portrait of a people whose lives are brought forth from the shadow of anonymity.
