Photographer Shows New York in a Way You’ve Never Seen Before

Nonetheless in a new photo-essay for Dezeen, he states that rather than find these creative venues had disappeared, he discovered they had been re-purposed and remained outstanding spaces within the local arts community. Photographer’s work has now been assembled in a book: Unforgotten New York – Legendary Spaces of the Twentieth-Century Avant-Garde.
