Demonstration the day after Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated Central Park, New York (4/5/1968)  — The spring of 1968 was the most violent spring in American history, with the back-to-back assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. in April, and Robert Kennedy Jr. in June. Here are group of shocked New Yorker gather spontaneously in Central Park the day after King was shot. I cut school that day so I could join them.

World Trade Center (1998)  —  The World Trade Center was always in the background, hovering over the island, a book end to Empire State. Unlike Empire State, I never liked the WTC. Nor did I dislike it. It was just there, a place where 50,000 New Yorkers went to work everyday, a fact of New York life [..]

Child actors and models, Professional Children’s School (1979)  —  My first speciality as a journalist/photographer was education, with an emphasis on arts education. This gave me a great excuse to hang out at cool schools, like the Professional Children’s School, alma mater of Dustin Hoffman and Milton Berle and many other well-known figures in the arts and entertainment. This photo, of some of the junior thespians, models and comedians - guess who was what.

Memorial for Port Authority policemen who died on September 11, 2001, Riverside Church (2002)  —  [..] And then one day in 2001 it wasn’t there. The city was in shock for several years - you can see it in the faces of the Port Authority officers, some of the 403 emergency workers who perished when the Towers came down. A lot of people thought that New York would never recover. But of course it did. Because New York is New York.

EAST 79th STREET (1988)  — East 79th Street was the southern boundary of my world. Disco was still hot. The Village Voice was still around.

Poster for Muhammad Ali lecture, Eddy Street, Ithaca (1971)  —  Perhaps the most celebrated draft resister of his day was the late Muhammad Ali. As far as he was concerned, the war in Vietnam was not his fight. His fight - the fight for racial justice - was closer to home. Or as he memorably put it, “No Viet Cong ever called me a Nigger”. Man definitely had a way with words.

Sunday in the park with Fabienne, Central Park (2001)  —  On a magical afternoon in 2001, I did a glamour shoot in Central Park with a lovely model from Switzerland by the name Fabienne Bratschi. I remember it like yesterday. This photo helps.
