Larry Silver, a Bronx-born photographer, has 45 photographs of everyday New Yorkers and major New York City sites taken during a transformative period in history on view at The NY Historical Society.
This new exhibition highlighting his early works captures the day-to-day life in the city's post-World War II urban environment that has since largely disappeared.
Although not one of the greats, it is great seeing the city through a native's eyes at this time in our history.
On view through December 4th, 2016.
The exhibition is named "Photographs by Larry Silver, 1949 – 1955”.
