The rich tradition of street photography in New York City will be demonstrated in a smaller companion exhibition titled City Scenes: Highlights of New York Street Photography, showcasing approximately 40 works from 1888 to 2002.  Iconic New York City street photographs will be on display, including Paul Strand’s Wall Street, New York (1915), Robert Frank’s 34th Street (1951) and Diane Arbus’ Couple Arguing, Coney Island, NY (1960).  The exhibition, which also features works by Jacob Riis, Berenice Abbot, Helen Levitt, William Klein, Nan Goldin, Joel Meyerowitz and others, offers a compelling mix of sweeping cityscapes, candid portraits and personal interactions.
