DESCRIPTION

Exploring New York City from the mid-1940s until the early 1960s, the exhibition Only in New York: Photographs from LOOK Magazine accompanies the publication of the first-ever book devoted to the museum's extraordinary LOOK photography collection. To LOOK's editors and photographers, among them Stanley Kubrick, New York was both a newly emergent international capital of world-class museums and glamorous nightclubs as well as a hometown for millions who rode its subways and thrilled to its baseball teams. The exhibition features images from the book and historic LOOK magazines, which demonstrate how LOOK used images to tell its national readership about the city they called "the world's most exciting."   

The publication of the same title is published by the Museum of the City of New York and The Monacelli Press (October 2009) and written by Donald Albrecht, Curator of Architecture and Design, and Thomas Mellins, an independent curator.
