Vintage New York: Etchings, Engravings and Photographs of New York City, 1850 to the Present
March 22 - September 12, 1999
David Filderman Gallery, 9th floor
Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library
Vintage New York deals with changes that New York has experienced during the past 100 years, both good and bad. It remembers architectural grandeur leveled by the developer's wrecking ball. It memorializes great urban landmarks that have been preserved and restored. It chronicles the splendor of the wealthy in Fifth Avenue mansions; but it also shows the plight of the impoverished in shantytowns and sweatshops. It deals with both the prosperity and pain of its citizens.
