This fascinating collection of New York imagery has a unique viewpoint - that of the pedestrian. Created before the advent of the automobile, New York was designed for pedestrians. Broadway, for example, was an old Indian trail stretching and meandering throughout the length of Manhattan. To truly experience the city you must walk as Ronnie Farley has done for the making of this intimate and surprising volume of life photography.
