“The Weegee Guide to New York…
Roaming the streets of Manhattan in the 1930s, the photographer and photojournalist Weegee (pseudonym of the European-born Arthur Fellig) wasn’t afraid of taking stark black-and-white photos of the city’s least glamorous environs. He thrived in documenting less than desirable aspects of the city, such as gruesome murders, overcrowded tenement houses, and street thugs. This small volume is divided into 11 mapped-out neighborhood sections that feature new and old photographs from the darkly cynical master.”
