Inspired by the ’60s and ’70s New York street style photography featured last month, we sought out even more pictorial – and sartorial – relics of the Big Apple. We found a copy of the book New York in the Forties on the crowded shelves of a thrift store in Berkeley, California – nearly 3,000 miles away!
In this collection of black-and-white images, esteemed former Life magazine photographer and professor Andreas Feininger documents contrasting metropolitan personalities, culture, and visual narratives to those captured two and three decades later. Same city, different world.
