Gotham Memories. Being a native New Yorker, I feel that my city is the most exciting in the world. Its uniqueness, high energy level, and diversity of people and architecture make it a perfect city to document in photographs Even though many of these images, all taken between 1969 and 1985, are evocative of a city that no longer exists, they still seem to have a certain timeless feel about them.
