The author's personal documentary of the destruction of Manhattan's oldest and most historic neighborhood. Although photographed in New York, this wholesale elimination of nineteenth-century neighborhoods was going in many cities across the country at the time. A historical record of a fast-disappearing scene and a beautiful portrait of buildings that we will never see again; but in a way, it is also a portrait of the people who lived there, of empty rooms with children's paintings, furniture, stairwells, walls, windows, panelings an extraordinary and important document. It is a moving, powerful, and compassionate work of art. Collectible. Dust jacket is slightly rubbed and with a few small tears at top edge. Very Good+ in Very Good- DJ. Item #30970
