Exhibition Website

Jul 1 2016 - Dec 4 2016

The early photography of Larry Silver (b. 1934) focused on New York’s urban environment. Working predominantly in the mid-1950s, he captured a world in the Bronx and Manhattan that has largely since disappeared. This exhibition will bring together approximately 50 of photographs of major New York City landmarks, including the Empire State Building, the original Pennsylvania Station before it was demolished, and the Headquarters of the United Nations when it was a new addition to the city’s skyline.
